I gave it to Howard for the same reason I gave it to Wade. A better body of work and longetivity with the franchise while still accomplishing a lot. But now that I keep rereading the topic title, I'll change my vote to Shaq. Since it's the best player and not the greatest or most important..

If that was the case, Shaq would have been in close contention with Magic as the Laker's 'BEST PLAYER' , yet he wasn't even nominated (Even though he should have been).

And Prime Howard was just as good as Orlando Shaq. He lead them to just as much opportunities, and has better longevity.

This board is just proving it's trash tier once again.

That's what's been discussed before. Are we simply choosing who's the best or who has the best body of work for the franchise. Otherwise a lot more of the polls would be more one sided. Besides these are a lot more opinionated than anything so chill out bro
