9. Dwight Howard
Team: Charlotte Hornets
2016-17 Stats: 13.5 PPG, 12.7 RPG, 1.2 BlPG
Regardless of how you feel about Dwight Howard on a personal level, the numbers don’t lie and Howard still has decent enough numbers to make the list. Despite everything, he’s still a rebounding machine as his 2016-17 stats show and that was playing on a subpar Atlanta squad. Now that he’s in Charlotte, Howard will have the best opportunity to get as close to his three consecutive Defensive Player of the Year nods as possible, although Father Time will have a say in him getting too close.
