Like Dwight Howard, James Worthy was a chosen one - the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft.

Eight years into Howard's career, with LeBron James (picked No. 1 the year before Howard) now officially crowned, mark Worthy down as unimpressed.

"I can't say I'm a huge, big Dwight Howard fan," Worthy said.

Lakers fans will hear from Worthy on a near-daily basis as studio analyst for games this season on the new Time Warner Cable SportsNet. For now, he cites insufficient seriousness and excessive complaining from Howard.
