The official list of the NBA’s top 75 players of all time is now revealed, yet big man Dwight Howard is not fully convinced about it. 

The current Lakers big man delivered a crushing one-word phrase to express his sentiment. 

Entering the 2004 NBA Draft as the number one overall pick straight from high school, Howard was a force to be reckoned with back in the day. The core foundation of the Orlando Magic from the late 2000s to early 2010s, his outstanding power, and verticality willed the team to outduel League MVP LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers for a slot to the 2009 NBA Finals, wherein they, unfortunately, fell to the Lakeshow in five, 4-1.

The future Hall of Famer’s résumé is currently loaded, highlighted by an NBA title, eight All-star selections, eight All-NBA team honors, three Defensive Player of the Year awards, and multiple defensive selections. Using his defensive prowess and elite athleticism, he charged his way into the pantheon of the league’s greatest centers of all time. 

It may be shocking to see that Dwight’s name didn’t make it in spite of the overwhelming accomplishments he gathered in his illustrious career, but this could be a motivation to fuel himself to win another ring with Hollywood this season.
