Dwight Howard Says Don’t Compare Him to Hakeem, He Can’t Do Those Things


I don’t think anyone was ever going to compare Dwight Howard to Hakeem Olajuwon, but just in case you were thinking about it after seeing them workout, Dwight says don’t.

“Having these guys in my backyard and have them pushing me to the limit is just going to make me better,” said Howard after his 90-minute workout [on Monday] wrapped up. “It’s not about emulating Dream. That’s the thing. We get caught up in comparing players, trying to do what this guys does just because you work with him.

At least he knows his limitations.

The Rockets shouldn’t focus their offense around Dwight Howard, that would be a mistake. The offense should go through James Harden and let Dwight Howard focus on his strengths defense and rebounding.
