This is crazy there are some similarities between shaq and superman however Dwight is a much better player period. You can argue about the rings all you want but the fact is shaq had to go to a team with a star player to win a ring but Dwight make everyone around him better just like all the other greats. Don't count them out. GO MAGIC!!!

The NBA has had only 1 player close to a Superman.
And his name had 4 letters.
And that name was WILT!
Ask a guy named Bill Russell.

Dwight Howard has no jump shot. He relies on his strength to over-power his opponent on the inside in order to dunk or lay it up. He's pretty one dimensional actually. But, in a way, so was Shaq, only Shaq had a pretty effective hook shot and short range jumper off the glass. But Shaq couldn't shoot a free throw if his life depended on it.

great article. shaq may be overreacting, but howard needs to be more humble towards the issue. Shaq was one of the greatest to play the game, and is probably what howard will turn into. Howard is mini shaq
