I'm sure a healthy Kevin Love would've had something to say about this.

Also:

 

 

On Wednesday night, Dwight Howard became the youngest player in NBA history to collect 9,000 rebounds.
 
Just 16 seconds into the Lakers battle against the Houston Rockets, Howard collected his own miss to hit the milestone.
 
Howard hit 9,000 at 27 years and 130 days old. Wilt Chamberlain accomplished the same feat at the age of 27 and 144 days. Bill Russell did it in 27 years 357 days.
 
Heading into the game Wednesday, Howard had 927 rebounds on the season at 12.4 a game.
 
Howard is in his ninth season after spending his first eight in Orlando with the Magic.
 
His career high on the glass was during the 2011-12 season, when he averaged 14.5 rebounds a game.

Out of the 501 guys who shot a free throw in the NBA this season, Dwight Howard finished 467th in free throw percentage (.492).

Anyone have his average since the all star break. I think a big reason why its so low is because of the beginning of the season. Im thinking he will get at least 13 next season.

Before the break: 11.8 RPG

After the break: 13.6 RPG

Thought it would be around that. Though not having gasol there for a while probably added to his total. 

 

Its night and day how much better dwight is now from the beginning of the season.

Dwight missed more FTs this season than Steve Nash has missed in his entire career.

He's gonna get to 15+ next season. Book it.

 

 

btw this youngest to 9000 business will likely won't be broken for quite some time.

That shouldn't be that surprising when you really think about it.

I would say Kevin Love, but it's going to be tough with him and Dwight fighting over rebounds next season.

I have looked at Love's situation before making that claim, and no he can't win. He needs to have 5510 rebounds in next ~3 seasons. Not possible. Considering Dwight has only missed 25 games in 9 years even with the back injury, he had insane durability and production rate at the same time. From current players only one that has shot at is Drummond if he is allowed to play big minutes starting from next season.
