Dwight Howard Leads NBA In 6 Categories No One Wants To


The once most feared and most dominant big man in the league, now is playing with his 5th team in the last seven years.

The Atlanta Hawks, the team Howard played for last season, didn’t get more than a few role players from the Hornets for a player who is an eight-time All Star, eight-time All NBA Team member, and a 3-time defensive player of the year.

Ever since Dwight Howard left the Orlando Magic, his career took a turn for the worse. Over these past seven years, Howard had to deal with injuries on a regular basis, but also clashed with teammates and front offices.

His one Lakers season was a total disaster, and after a promising start with the Rockets, that chapter did not work out as planned either. Everyone thought Dwight would finally be happy again, when he signed a deal with his hometown team, the Atlanta Hawks, this past offseason. It didn’t! Now, with the Charlotte Hornets, his stats look better than in previous years, but Howard has not been able to lead them to the playoffs or leave a significant impact.

But, Dwight Howard is leading the NBA in six different categories this season. Unfortunately for him all of them are categories no player wants to lead the league in.

Howard ranks first in the league in:

  • Offensive Fouls (51)
  • Technical Fouls (14)
  • Goaltends (22)
  • Travels (27)
  • 3 Second Violations (13)
  • Stepping Out Of Bounds TOs (11)
