Howard admitted to feeling like he was snubbed from the list when it was announced.

“I think that what I have done in my career, there’s no way it cannot be recognized,” Howard told GQ in November (h/t Hoops Hype). “It was upsetting, at first. But, I didn’t take it too seriously. I felt before that I wasn’t gonna be on it because it felt like [the NBA] was trying to phase me out.”

While he may not be the force that he once was, Howard was arguably the most dominant big man during his heyday. The three-time Defensive Player of the Year made the All-Star team eight times, was a First-Team All NBA in five consecutive seasons and led the league in blocks twice and rebounding five times.

Howard is coming off a 14-point, 14-rebound performance in the Lakers’ win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. Los Angeles will be back in action on Friday against the Atlanta Hawks.
