Healthy Howard is the best Center in this league. He's a tool, but he can dominate at a level that puts him in the top 3ish level. Was just that in his Magic days.

And I like guys like Bogut, Bynum, and Hibbert more.

Dwight. Mobility, defense, scoring, everything in between.

As effective as Hibbert is. Imagine Dwight facing that whack ass front court of Miami's.

Let's not jump the gun now.

Not that just. As hard it is to believe, the Pacers defense would actually get better with Dwight.

Part of being better is being a good teammate.
And Howard hasn't shown that he is.
So Hibbert is better.

Default Re: Who's better, Roy Hibbert or Dwight Howard?

It's closer than you think. Howard got no skills in the low post, he turns the ball too much, and can't hit a free throw, Hibbert is slow but got skills in the low post, he doesn't turn the ball too much and can hit free throws. So Dwight is not really better on offense, they are about equal. On defense is close but I would take Dwight, Dwight is quicker and he can play better defense on the perimeter, while Hibbert is only a rim protector. Dwight is also a better rebounder.

Yup. That's where the real difference is -- mobility.

As of right now, Hibbert is playing better. Dwight has accomplished a little more, so you have to give him the benefit of the doubt. Let's see how good he is (or is not) next season when the injuries heal.
