Hornets news: Dwight Howard leading NBA in six categories no one wants to
It’s easy to hate Dwight Howard.
It just got a little easier.
The Charlotte Hornets center is leading the NBA in six different categories this season. But not anything a player would crave to lead the league in.
Honestly just the most annoying parts of basketball and Howard is a part of them more than any other player this season.
Since leaving the Atlanta Hawks for the Hornets this season, expectations were high but Howard wasn’t enough to tip Charlotte into the playoff race as they have already been eliminated from contention. On the season, Howard averaged 16.8 points and 12.4 rebounds in addition to his league leading categories.
Howard and the Hornets have some work to do this offseason if they plan on being a postseason threat in the future. Howard is a center that can be surrounded by a nice team and success will likely come. But what Charlotte had this season was not enough and Howard’s dismal performance in certain areas surely didn’t help.
