Gerald would blow past Dwight on the offensive end, and could body up on Dwight near the basket since Dwight has no jumpshot.

You don't think Dwight could just back him down on offense and play off him on D and make Wallace shoot jumpers?

G Force would win easily. Dwight has no offense, Wallace has a shot and can definitely man up Dwight.

While he's not the best shooter out there, Crash can hit an open J

Gerald ain't exactly small and weak, I've seen smaller people than him effectively body up Dwight Howard. Even if Dwight played off him he is too slow to keep up with him on D.

45 pounds is a lot to give up. Howard doesn't have to worry about being double teamed or 3 in the key either... this is a one on one.

g-wall would probably steal it a couple of times.

What is more likely to happen, Wallace stealing the ball from Dwight or Dwight making Wallace miss a jumpshot?

11-11. Tie game, now it's a race to the final 10 votes.

before Howard can score in the paint, he going have to get there. i dont think his bandle handling is good. so i will give it to G-Force.

Yep, Howard's a turnover machine. Wallace would win easily.

Wallace takes a small lead. This is going to come down to the last votes. I'll check it in the morning and post results on the website. If someone sees the 21st vote, feel free to post the name of the winner in the thread.

LMFAO at Crash being able to "man-up" Dwight... If the rules are loose like a regular pickup game, Dwight would tear him up.

Closest matchup yet...but the winner is...Dwight Howard.

Dwight Howard advances to the 2nd round.

1v1 is won by the more versatile player.


Gerald Wallace = the more versatile player.


Dwight isn't going to be able to dunk it everytime..
