Dwight Howard was on Twitter Monday asking questions, for example, “who is the GOAT?” He said you had to choose between Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, or Bill Russell. It’s all good fun.
Then he asked and answered a question on lefties:
As in James Harden. Howard’s Rocket teammate.
Which was interesting because the above-mentioned Russell is a leftie, and someone called Howard out on it. So Howard changed his tune.
I’d personally go with Chris Mullin as a shooter if we’re naming lefties.
Harden might not even be a starter on my all-time left-handed team.
Center: Bill Russell (reserves David Robinson, Artis Gilmore)
Power Forward: Dave Cowens
Small forward: Chris Mullin
Shooting guard: Gail Goodrich (Harden is in discussion with Manu Ginobili)
Point guard: Nate “Tiny” Archibald
