Maybe/Depends: Paul Pierce, Dwight Howard


Nope: Pau Gasol, Carmelo Anthony, Grant Hill, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili


Laughable : Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire,






I didn't include any of the young players like Durant, but only guys at the end of their careers.

So Dwight is at the end of his career?



And Nash and Kidd are locks, IMO.

Dwight sure as hell ain't a young player.
Dwight will be a HOFer

Kidd is a lock too

If 26 is old, I'm about to start collecting my 401K.

He's in the latter half of his career. He's past his prime.

Kinda sad that that Dwight howard is considered a HoF center now a days

I know he's the best center in the league but he doesn't even compare to those in the 90s. If Dwight Howard played in the 90's he wouldn't be top 5 lol

There was definitely a lot more talent at the position in the 90's. I think he is right there around top 5 if you stick him in the 90's.


Shaq
Hakeem
Ewing
Robinson


And then I go Alonzo. Dwight might be right there with Alonzo.
No need to get all Kurt Thomas-y on us, crzy.
Howard would be a HOF center in any era. And he'd average a few more PPG in other eras as well, without the zone defenses. Post play has been de-emphasized by the rules.

I just don't think Howard compares to the elite centers of the 90s. Hakeem, Shaq, Ewing, Robinson..
The thought of Dwight howard going against Hakeem or Robinson like they did against eachother in 1995 makes me lol.
