Dwight Howard crowns himself the new ‘Superman’ of the NBA

Dwight Howard is known in the NBA world not as much for his great basketball skills as for his multiple controversial remarks. This 6-feet-10 athlete is often compared to one of the greatest NBA star of all time Shaquille O’Neal.

He has by far won an NBA championship, eight-time All-Star, eight-time All-NBA Team honoree, five-time All-Defensive Team member, and three-time Defensive Player of the Year. He is even called the ‘superman’ of the NBA universe.

Howard is currently a free agent for the 2022-23 NBA season and this free agent is looking for a new home. Despite the fact that his on-court feats have kept him away from the spotlight, he continues to find methods to keep himself in the headlines.

In the 2008 Slam Dunk contest he donned a superman cape and dunked from the free-throw line, was one of Howard’s most memorable moments. He was questioned explicitly if he’d ever had sex while wearing the cape on a recent episode of BS with Jake Paul. He calmly repeated the question, grinning and nodding, and casually admitted to having done the deed!

This takes us back to his iconic ‘superman’ dunk, which was such a spectacular athletic feat that all rules of the Dunk Contest seemed to go straight out the window, as Howard earned a 50 without even really dunking the ball.

There is no need of telling that this superman cape has bought the big-man a lots of luck and he seems to be utilizing it for multiple purposes. However, Howard’s carefree confession might bring discomfort to the fans and audience. But if you have known about this man for long, you know that this is just Dwight Howard being Dwight Howard!
