Oakley isn't close to being the caliber of player as either, so I don't know why you would even bring him in the discussion. And even if that's the case, that's not exactly a glaring endorsement for Dwight in this comparison.

Howard may be a wee bit better on the offense, but I don't think Zo would screw over a franchise in dramatic manner.

They were both whiners, but I'd take Dwight over Zo. Better rebounder, as good of a shotblocker, and similar offensive skill set, if not better. Also Zo seemed to psych himself out of games and his temper was a liability as much as it was an asset.

36 year old, post kidney disease Zo handling a 20 year old Dwight.

Give me Prime Zo anyday of the week.

To be fair, Zo did get outplayed by an old/injured Ewing in a game 7.

I dont think their offensive skillsets are that similar. Zo had a bit of a triple threat game when he was on the Hornets. He always had a jumper. He was as good as Dwight back to basket....meaning...not elite. But effective. But he could faceup and blow by you a bit better. And that jumper he had early was nice as well. He didnt just make 1 game winner in the playoffs. He could just straight up look you in the eye and shoot an 18 footer.

I got a lot of Hornets games around then. Zo wasnt like....some elite shooting bigman. He wasnt even Yao. But he could make shots on a regular basis that would have people making a big deal about it if Dwight did it.

I was at a bar watching that game where he started throwing punches at LJ at the end of the game with the next game being the elimination game. I've never seen a crowd of people applaud a scrum like that because everyone knew that Miami was done. Was just ridiculous.

Dwight easily for building a franchise due to durability.

Peaks would be close though but even then I would go with Dwight.

Zo. Dwight only does so damn well because of the lack of competition at center these days. Zo would be amazing in the modern NBA.

Can't compare the two cause they played in entirely different eras.

Put Dwight in the 90s and his efficiency, boards and ppg drop. Put Zo in today's era, and he's Defensive Player of the Year multiple times, amongst the top scorers and MVP candidate.

Zo easily. He had a good offensive game. Could score in the paint and had a jumper. Dwight is mechanical and looks awkward in the paint. Zo was as equally as good as Dwight on defense. Zo was a competitor. Dwight he smiles and laughs when his teams is losing.

'Zo without hesitation.

Better on offense, and just as good if not better on Defense.

Also had that killer instinct and toughness that Howard hasn't always shown.
