  • The next big thing.

    I know for a fact that Dwight Howard is going to be one of the best players for the next decade. Why you ask? Because there isn't a center in the league or in college who can stop him from scoring 30, blocking 10, and grabbing 20 rebounds. I think Dwight Howard is by far one of the best players in the league. He will obviously be an all star for years to come and he will probably win a few championships if he has the right talent around him. Overall, I think Dwight Howard is one of the elite players in the game. Thank you.moreless
