Dwight, but both seem unfeasible.

Howard is clearly the more valuable player but I think any team that gives either a max contract will regret it.  Smith becasue he is just plain not that good and Howard because, well becasue Dwight will always be Dwight (kind of like Manny being Manny).

Would've said the same 2 years ago

Turns out he's a petulant child who already seemed to peek and he has pretty much no skill...relied on being a specimen

Of course Dwight, but the last year or so have really made me not like Dwight. Terrible attitude and likely will never be the same due to his back injury in my opinion.

Dwight Howard. His paint presence is still very valuable even if Dwight is unable to return to his former MVP caliber glory.

Can't build around Josh Smith. He is a nice supporting star player but no more than that.

I can't understand the Josh Smith love at all.  I assume it's me, but he has never impressed me.  Reminds me of Antoine; a guy who'll give give you something and then take it away.  I guess he can block shots and is an athletic guy, but I always see him making mistakes with the ball and taking ill-advised shots.  I guess I need to watch him more.

I've seen DH be dominant.  Can't say I've seen much of him this year, but in the past he's been a huge difference maker.  DH can be the #1 guy on a team with the right players around him. Smith, it seems to me, needs to be a 2nd or 3rd best guy.
