Playoff Legacy: Dwight Howard

If you didn't notice Dwight Howard becoming the league's most dominant big man this season, the playoffs are now the time to pay attention. In three of the Magic's five playoff games, Howard has netted a 20 point, 20 rebound game game: 25-22 in game one, 29-20 in game two, and 21-21 in the series clinching game five. He reminds me of Kevin Garnett with his ability to make a 20-20 game seem routine.

While we're on Kevin Garnett, why am I rooting for the Hawks to make the miracle and knock the Celtics out in round one? Perhaps Wolves fans could feel slightly less thwarted if Kevin Garnett lost a first-round series with another team--we don't have to feel like the tuberculosis Kevin McHale is solely responsible for our emptiness.

    doc rivers and flip saunders are actually the same person.


  2. Howard, not King James will probably be the best player over the next decade. I know its trite to day it, but he is fun to watch.
