The Boston Celtics were on the hunt for a rental big man during the offseason, and they eventually brought in six-time All-Star Blake Griffin. Another once perennial All-Star, Dwight Howard, believes he should’ve been the man for the job.

Following the untimely injury of Robert Williams III, the Celtics needed another center who could fill in temporarily. While a lot of names circulated during free agency, Griffin was ultimately chosen over Howard and other veterans.

Howard, who felt scorned by not only the Celtics, but the Los Angeles Lakers as well, went on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay show to voice his feelings.

The three-time Defensive Player of the Year thinks he could offer a lot of defensive value to the Cs, even likening himself to the legendary Bill Russell.
