Thus far in his career, Howard has yet to prove himself as a superstar contender in the National Basketball Association. ESPN analysts around the league will agree Dwight has too much potential and too much athletic ability to settle for just an average basketball player, however Dwight seems to be doing just that and is becoming a mediocre center for the Houston Rockets.
Dwight is not challenging himself early on in the season, he is not demanding the ball down on the block and he is not getting along with his teammates. Perhaps we have been expecting too much from Dwight Howard.
Not signing with the Los Angeles Lakers was a big mistake for Dwight Howard, probably the biggest mistake of his career in my opinion simply because the Lakers would have been built around Dwight once Kobe Bryant retired from the league in a few years. The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the most winning franchises in all of sports and I think Dwight Howard will look back on his decision once his contract with Houston runs out and realize what an awful career choice he made signing with the Rockets.
On his career Dwight is averaging eighteen points and thirteen rebounds, which are awesome statistics for anyone else but because this is Dwight Howard we are talking about here I have to be a bit more critical on his performance. This season Dwight Howard needs to average twenty eight points and fifteen rebounds a game if the Houston Rockets hope to stand any chance of chasing an NBA title.
