Cohen 8-Ball: This or That?
OrlandoMagic.com’s Josh Cohen opens up a debate on intriguing topics on the Magic and the entire NBA.
Shaq or Dwight?
April 22, 2014
They both were sensational while with the Magic. Shaq’s offensive dominance was far superior to that of Dwight’s, but Howard’s longevity in Orlando and his rebounding and shot-blocking abilities were more impressive than O’Neal’s.
They each led the Magic to the NBA Finals – Shaq in 1995 and Dwight in 2009 – and were both iconic figures throughout the world.
While it remains ambiguous if Howard will ever return to MVP caliber status in Houston, O’Neal’s post-Magic days were generally outstanding until injuries and conditioning problems derailed his career. He was the league’s MVP in 2000 and won four NBA titles – three in L.A. and one in Miami.
