So Hibbert is better.

It's also about being on a team who's role you fit in and a competent coach who knows how to use you. This is a bad example

Swatting out of bounds comes from being a great help defender. When you're flying in from a weak side it is very difficult to keep the ball in play. Hibbert is primarily a straight up shot blocker or net defender. I wouldn't use this as an example of being a better player.

Gasol
Noah
Hibbert
Lopez


They are all better than Howard who has the IQ of a pet rock. They are all younger too. Plus, Howard's baggage is horrendous!

He's in a place where he doesn't want to play, he was a beast in orlando on both ends of the floor. If he somehow gets to a team who he wants to play for I still think he can be close to his 2009 self.

He doesn't want to play because he's an overgrown sissy.

He has the mental age of a 10 year old. He had no idea how well he had it in Orlando. he was the man. he got whatever he wanted. Coaches fired, no problem! A new stadium, you got it!

As soon as he leaves for an established team, in a major market, with Hall of Fame players, Dwight Howard gets exposed for the sap that he is. He's a weenie.

This is why Hibbert is better. You come to play regardless of your situation.

A little more? You mean like being a consensus DPOY, 3 seasons in a row. Leading a franchise to a Finals appearance. Multiple All Star appearances. Putting up insane 20/20 games.

Dwight, and it really ain't close. On their best days, you wouldn't even be asking this question.

Right now, I would say Roy Hibbert. He has more to his offensive game than Dwight does. The nice hook shot, passing out of double teams, and defense.

Old Dwight would make Hibbert look stupid. But that Dwight is never coming back.

But at least Hibbert has actual touch.

Dwight howard looked like a chump against an old Sheed, old Shaq, old KG, Kendrick Perkins, Bynum, and Pau.

I'm taking Hibbert for my team. He wants to be a part of the team, he listens, and he wants to get better. Indy just needs to get a better big man coach to develop him more (cough Ewing cough).
