Complex Says: For the last three years, Dwight Howard has reigned supreme as the NBA's best defender, with a strength and athleticism matched by few players in league history. But all of that means absolutely nothing if you don't know when to get the hell out of the way, a lesson he learned just six games into his career. Howard quickly slid into position upon recognizing Bryant's drive to the basket, however he couldn't decide whether to attempt the block or take the charge. Too late. Kobe displayed no such hesitation, rising for a dunk that was just…nuts.
