Everyone loves a good throwdown. Not many dunk the rock better than Orlando’s Dwight Howard. He showed us why he is the NBA’s version of “Superman during All-Star Weekend in 2008 by donning a cape on his way to winning the ’08 Slam Dunk crown. Even though he was beaten out in the ’09 contest by Nate Robinson’s kryptonite dunk, he is the most dominating low post presence in the game today(with apologies to Shaq!). Howard uses his best attribute, brute strength, to jam the ball whenever possible, as evidence of his .568 career FG%.
