    You sure about that? Let me edamacate you. A list of all the Centers you listed career highs and how they stack up to Howard's.

    Howard

    22.9 PPG | 14.5 RPG | 1.9 APG | 1.5 SPG | 2.9 BPG

    61.2 FG% | 67.1 FT%

    Robinson

    29.8 PPG | 13.0 RPG | 4.8 APG | 2.3 SPG | 3.2 BPG

    55.2 FG% | 77.4 FT%

    Olajuwon

    27.8 PPG | 14.0 RPG | 3.6 APG | 2.6 SPG | 4.2 BPG

    53.8 FG% | 78.7 FT%

    Ewing

    28.6 PPG | 12.1 RPG | 3.0 APG | 1.5 SPG | 4.0 BPG

    56.7 FG% | 77.5 FT%

    O'Neal

    29.7 PPG | 13.9 RPG | 3.8 APG | 0.9 SPG | 3.5 BPG

    66.7 FG% | 62.2 FT%

    Kareem (1979 - 1989)

    26.2 PPG | 12.9 RPG | 5.4 APG |1.7 SPG | 4.0 BPG

    60.4 FG% | 78.3 FT%

    Howard is not the scorer the others were, but that is largely due to the fact that he attempts far less field goals per game than they did. His career high in FGA was 13.4 in 2011 and 2012, when he averaged 22.9 and 20.6, respectively. (What were the others? Robinson, 20.7, Olajuwon, 21.7, Ewing, 20.4, 24.9 [1972], O'Neal, 21.1)

    If Howard was given an average of the all-time greats careerhigh FGAs (21.4) and hit them at his career FG% (57.7) he would average 24.7 PPG, not including FTs. If we include FTs (His career average FTM [5.3] * His career FT% [57.6]), he would average 30.1 PPG. (Ouch) So to wrap up a long story, he would average more PPG than all of the Centers listed (Excluding Kareem who averaged more than 30.1 2 times in his career), without a post game.

    Oh, and his highest career high RPG (14.5) would be a career high for every Center, except Kareem. (16.9, 1976) So no, it would not be an average season for any of them.

    Is that enough for you?
