The Most Valuable Players in the NBA Right Now

17. Dwight Howard

Salary: $19,536,360

It's weird. Dwight Howard isn't too far off his career numbers. Howard's points per game are down from 18.3 to 16.3, but we should've expected that outcome, given the amount of talent on the roster. Plus, D12's rebounds are at a stellar 11.8 per game which is actually lower than his 12.9 career average. And let us not forget to mention that Dwight's doing all of this with a nagging shoulder injury and a back that isn't 100 percent yet. Clearly, it's the intangibles that are standing in the 27-year-old center's way because, statistically, he's the best anchor in the league.
