    Is Dwight Howard a future 1st ballot hall of famer?

    Someone said this, I didn't agree with him. I would say after his first 7 yrs and 4 dpoys, 1 finals, it was sure heading that way, but these last 3 yrs haven't helped his case whatsoever.

    Tough to say, 1st ballot? Nah. I do think he will eventually get in there though.

    A ring probably will do it. Right now? No. But he's closer than people will want to admit. What he was in Orlando was absolutely first-ballot caliber.
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    Lol i love when fans do this question.

    Who the **** knows if he will make it FIRST BALLOT

    no one knows WHO are going to be the candidates that year and wich candidates from other years will be nominated again.


    so if its a " weak " year he will make it first ballott, if its a " strong " year he may have to wait.

    in the end.
    Who the **** cares if a player makes it first ballot, second or 35st ballott.

    The thing is if they DO enter or the DO NOT: i dont care if clyde lovelette entered first ballott or third ballott, all i know is he IS in the hof.

    Dwight WILL enter.

    Basically this. I wouldnt count out him adding to his legacy over the next few seasons in Houston as well.

    It's totally ridiculous that you're so petty you would create a thread just to start an argument. But you want to get into this? Let's get into this. Here's Dwight's resume so far in only 11 seasons in the league:

    Career stats of 18.3/12.9/1.5/2.2 with a .599 TS%, 22.1 PER and a .179 WS/48
    3x Defensive Player of the Year
    Top 5 in MVP four times
    8 All-NBA teams in 8 consecutive seasons
    5 All-Defensive teams
    27th in career Player Efficiency Rating
    38th in career WS/48
    3rd in career TRB%
    19th in career TS%
    5th in career eFG%
    5th in career FG%
    23rd in career BLK%
    28th in career blocks
    20th in career blocks per game
    40th in career rebounds
    13th in career rebounds per game
    18th in career postseason WS/48
    11th in career postseason PER
    Carried a mediocre supporting cast to the NBA Finals (08-09)

    That is a better career resume than probably more than half the players in the Hall of Fame already. He's got a strong case when he retires as one of the 10-15 greatest centers in NBA history. And while a first ballot Hall of Fame selection isn't a lock, I certainly don't see why it's laughable.

    It certainly is not laughable, he is the most dominant center of this era, I think he gets in first ballot, and I hate Dwight but I think he is a great player and will be first ballot.

    No I don't think so.

    Since when are rings required to be a first ballot Hall of Fame selection? Barkley, Stockton, Malone, Ewing, Hayes and English were all First-ballot selections despite no rings between them.

    Some of you guys are overrating Dwight. He's not even the defensive beast he used to be.

    Stockton most assists, Malone second most points, Ewing kept those Knicks in contention every yr and integral part of the 02 dream team with Stock and Karl. Never watched Hayes and English.
