Not every single season. Hakeem missed the All-NBA Team in 1992. Brad Daugherty made it ahead of him (and Hakeem didn't miss games). Daugherty is flat out not as good as Howard.
Zo missed the All-NBA Team in 1998, with both Hakeem and Ewing missing much of the season. Dikembe made it ahead of him and Dikembe is flat out not as good as Howard. Even in 97, Shaq missed a bunch of time and Robinson missed all but 6 games. Howard in 2011 would have made that team ahead of O'Neal. He would have made the 1st team.
