Do you remember this Dwight Howard from six years ago? The dominant Orlando Magic center that put up 4o in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals and prevented the NBA from having a LeBron vs Kobe NBA Finals? The dominant big man who grabbed 14 rebounds, made 14-of-21 shots and even hit 12-of-16 free throws, which caused the Orlando crowd to cheer MVP as the league’s real MVP, LeBron James, had his worst game of the series?
If not, then watch the video above to refresh your memory.
FYI, before you start going off on LeBron’s team and saying he didn’t have any help because you don’t remember the 2009 Cavs, that Cavs team had two All-Stars (LeBron and Mo Williams), the best record in the league (66-16) and swept the Hawks and Pistons in the first two rounds of the playoffs. They also lost two of their playoff games against the Magic by a total of three points.
I was part of the casting for this video and as you can tell it’s really not Dwight and LeBron doing all of the dunks. It’s actually a few members of the Harlem Globetrotters.
