The NBA recently changed it’s form for the All-Star ballot by removing the “Center” position from the choices. It’s now just two guards and three FRONT COURT players. Now, this may just seem like a technicality, because in today’s NBA you have individual players rotating at multiple positions. But nevertheless, Dwight Howard doesn’t appreciate the alterations, regardless that he’s an almost guarantee for West. Bottom line, if you’re good, you’re good. “I don’t like it at all. We work just as hard as anybody else. I don’t think it’s fair to take away a position that’s been here for life. You need a center on the court. So I don’t think it’s right. That’s like taking away a guard..There are so many great guards and great forwards that they just overshadow what these centers can do…I think there are a lot of centers that can really play, but you got guys like LeBron and Kevin Durant who are 6’8”, Kevin Durant is 6’11”, 6’10”, who shoot 3s. It just overshadows a lot of the bigs that can play.” – Dwight Howard
