The 25 Greatest Centers in NBA History Tom Szczerbowski / USA TODAY Sports

16. Dwight Howard

Team(s): Magic, Lakers
Career Stats: 18.4 PPG 13.0 RPG 1.5 APG 1.0 SPG 2.2 BPG
Accomplishments: 6x All-Star, 3x Defensive Player of the Year, 6x All-NBA, 5x All-Defense, 5x Rebounding Leader, 2x Blocks Leader

Yup, he makes it on here. Before you start telling us how much we don't know about basketball, take a look at his numbers. Granted, Andrew Bynum is his only competition, but Howard would've did his thing in any era. His numbers might not look as good, but he's too athletic and too strong. All he has to do is get mean and the league is asking for trouble. When healthy, Howard is the best defensive player, by far. Plus, he was developing a nice post game before he hurt his back. Hopefully Kobe will train him to be the center he's supposed to be.
