Former NBA forward Robert Horry has been known to make many a big shot in his career.  Thus you have the nickname, “Big  Shot Rob” was born. Horry is no longer a player on the court, but still enjoys adding his input and watching these phenomenal NBA playoffs. During a recent interview with Hoops Hype, Horry was asked how he thought Dwight Howard would fare against his former Houston Rockets teammate and NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon. Horry never one to mince words, said “Dwight wouldn’t stand a chance.” Dwight would have no chance [against Olajuwon]. Howard is a good player, but his offensive skills are limited. He only has the Georgetown hook, a couple of spins in the baseline… Dwight is a great player, but there are things certain players can and can’t do, and Hakeem could do a lot. I totally agree with Horry in that regard. Olajuwon made David Robinson look like a fool on many occasions, and Dwight can’t hold a candle to the admiral either.

Dwight Howard Thinks He’ll Get Two More Max Deals Before He Retires

Just using common sense, it is highly unlikely that Howard will get another max deal after this one, let alone two. Doesn’t matter if he takes a four or five-year deal, this will be his last monster contract. He has already peaked as a player, so the percentages say that he is only going to get worse as the years go on. For a long time he never got hurt, but lately his body has...

Shaq: Dwight Has To 'Get Into The Same Mood I Was In'

Shaquille O'Neal has criticized Dwight Howard in the past and did so again on Tuesday when he said the Los Angeles Lakers' big man has been too nice in his career and must stiffen up.

Shaq Says Dwight Too Nice

Yesterday on ESPNLA, Shaq called his MiniMe, er Dwight Howard, “too nice.” It’s probably the best way anyone’s called him annoying. “I’m a connoisseur of giggling and playing and all that and making you laugh and playing with the fans, but when I cross that line, I’m ready to tear your face off…He’s just too nice.” I gotta agree. Less nice Dwight. More hermit...
