Houston Rockets: Best Rockets players since 2000
#4 Dwight Howard
Dwight Howard spent three seasons with the Rockets. Considered as a great player on both ends of the court, Dwight won the NBA Defensive Player award on three occasions (2009-11) and is also regarded as a phenomenal rebounder of the ball - he led the NBA in rebounding from 2007 to 2010, and again from 2012 to 2013 (he was also the blocks leader for two years straight).
During his stint with the Rockets, the 8-time NBA All-Star Howard formed a strong duo with James Harden. He led the team to NBA playoffs but lost in the first round. In his second season, the Rockets clinched their first division title in over 20 years and made it to the Western Conference Finals(but could not get past the Warriors).
Howard played 183 games for the Rockets and averaged 16 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game.
