It may be a guard’s game now, but big men are still important in today’s NBA and the 2020 postseason will see no shortage of talent on that end. The list includes Rudy Gobert, Marc Gasol, Ban Adebayo, and Nikola Jokic.
Of course, with all the talent in the frontcourt, there is bound to be some friction and in a conversation with Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, Lakers center Dwight Howard talked about going up against Joel Embiid, who he said he wanted to “choke.”
Needless to say, the two have a history together that isn’t exactly pretty. The two have played a total of four times and have totaled 37 fouls between both of them.
