Hawks' Dwight Howard Says He Would Take Kevin Durant Over LeBron James

By Timothy Downs

Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard was a guest on ESPN‘s First Take prior to Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Howard touched on a number of the Finals’ top storylines, but made the most noise when he said Kevin Durant — not LeBron James — is the best player in the NBA/World currently.

From BleacherReport:

Howard cited Durant’s ability to score anywhere on the floor as a seven-footer and his improved defense and shot-blocking when talking about the impact Durant has made in the NBA Finals and the perception that he has gotten the better of James in the series. And when pressed by the First Take panel to pick between Durant and James, Howard sided with Durant as the NBA’s best.
