Player Comparison #5

New, comments

This past week has been entertaining, to say the least. First, we had O'Neal v. Howard both off the court and on the court. Then, if that wasn't enough, we had O'Neal v. Van Gundy, just off the court (links galore). 

It's definitely been interesting covering "Flop Gate" as it unfolds, but it's become a subject that's both played out and old. However, before the issue is laid to rest, it's only right the inevitable occurs. 

 

You know what time it is.

One of these players is indeed Dwight David Howard. The other player, however, can not be named. Can you decipher who is who? Make your choice.

If you guessed O'Neal as the link to Howard, congratulations, you have won the game.

 

But if you didn't, be lucky that the penalty isn't impending death.

 

Until next time.
