No, not quite. He's definitely a hall of famer though, I'll give him that.

You think Mutombo had a better peak than Dwight??? He never averaged over 16 ppg

I think Dwight had a better peak than Alonzo too

Deke was arguably the GOAT defender at his peak............yeah his offense of game was lacking but he was still a better passer and offensive rebounder than Howard and didnt pretend he was a good post player either

Zo was a better version of him in almost everyway

Dwight was a very elite defender himself. And no Zo was not a better version in almost every way than Dwight. You're a boneheaded **** if you think so and it's clear what your agenda is

Howard was the better rebounder thats it

He's somewhere 45th-50th, and very slowly still moving up. Hate him or what, but guy deserves fairness.

This. The next best centers in 2010 where Brook Lopez, Al Jefferson, Andrea Bargnani, Mehmet Okur and David Lee

No, he wasn't. lol There is a handful of better defensive players at their peaks.

The guy said that Taj Gibson was an elite post player and a top 10 PF last season. Not the sharpest tool in the shed, so to speak.


Dwight is right there. 3x DPOY and 8x All-NBA. Not player players in the history of the sport with that kinda resume.

I think he would be close to top 50 all-time with 3x DPOY & leading the league in rebounding 5 times and 2 times in blocks & also once in FG%...also his current career averages are 17.4/12.7 with 2 blocks a game on 58.5%FG...led a team to the Finals and beat Lebron in the Playoffs when he won 66 games.. personal dislike aside I think he will qualify as a top 50 player. He's arguably the best big man of his era, 2011 you could have argued that he was the best player in the league.
