Dwight Howard passed Charles Barkley to move into 18th place on the NBA's all-time rebounding list.
At age 32 and with 12 years career in the NBA, the former overall first pick of 2004 has wrecked havoc in the NBA and has been one of the dominant big men of the modern basketball. While the spotlight today is not focused on him, Dwight has continued to be an effective basketball player for Charlotte Hornets.
Dwight Howard started his career from 2004–2012 with the Orlando Magic then a had a quick foray with the lakers from 2012–2013. The Houston Rockets once saw him as a savior but decided years later that it was Harden and not him. After spending 3 years, he moved Atlanta Hawks but it was shortlived once again. Today, he is playing for the Charlotte Hornets were he leads the team so far in three categories: field goal at 53.5%, blocks at 1.2 and rebound at 12.1 per game.
Just recently, Howard has tallied 12,550 career rebounds and has moved up to the 18th spot over Charles Barkley and just a little behind Bob Pettit, Jerry Lucas and it his career he could potentially pass the great Shaquille O'Neal's rebounding record that is not far behind at 13,099.
Howard is a 5× NBA rebounding leader (2008–2010, 2012, 2013) and a 2× NBA blocks leader (2009, 2010).
In my point of view, Dwight Howard is still an All-Star however, he may have lost a lot of charm lately especially after leaving the Los Angeles Lakers.
