Dwight Howard DOMINATED in his Taoyuan Leopards debut in Taiwan
Two weeks ago, Dwight Howard announced that he would be taking his talents to Taiwan and joining the Taoyuan Leopards to continue his basketball career.
As you probably know already, Howard, who turns 37 next month, was a free agent heading into the 2022-23 NBA season after spending last season with the Lakers. In Los Angeles, he averaged 6.2 points and 5.9 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game. The former 2004 first overall pick spent 18 total seasons in the NBA that included stints with the Magic, Rockets, Hornets, Hawks, Wizards, and Philadelphia 76ers.
Over his 18 year career, Howard averaged 15.7 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game.
All that information is important, considering what he did last night in his Taoyuan Leopards debut. Howard had 38 points, 25 rebounds, and nine assists as the Leopards came from behind and top the New Taipei CTBC DEA 120-115 in front of more than 15,000 fans at National Taiwan Sport University.
