Ex-NBA star Dwight Howard is switching up his game at the age of 37.
The high-flying big man known for terrorizing the paint is aiming to get his 3-pointers going after participating in a 3-point shooting contest for the T1 Taiwanese professional league.
Howard, an eight-time All-Star and NBA champ with the Disney Bubble Lakers, was anything but money from deep. The former Orlando Magic star was never celebrated for his range, but at least he’s giving it a shot overseas.
Despite fizzling out in the long-range competition, Dwight Howard will always have his 2008 NBA Dunk Contest crown to rest on.
Howard signed with the Taoyuan Leopards in November of 2022.
The 6-foot-10 center is averaging 25.6 points, 14.4 rebounds and 6.0 assists in 10 games with the Leopards. Howard is also shooting 26.3 percent from beyond the arc. He recently appeared in the news for getting ejected from a contest against the TaiwanBeer HeroBears for trying to break up an on-court brawl.
