Yeah I think people stubbornly overrate the NBL. It's a good league but you've got what, Aron Baynes, Issac Humphries, Keanu Pinder, Alex Sarr as his closest competition if he came over here. If you think he's averaging less than 20 and 10 you're kidding. 20 and 10 would be him playing poorly. I know NBA success doesn't always mean NBL success but Howard is still an elite body type and skill set here which we just dont have an answer for. And he's 38 - not 45 or 50. You could have 2, 3, 4 solid NBL seasons from a guy like him in this league.
With Bogut being the closest comparison, Bogut had a broken body coming into the 19/20 season, still took his team to the finals. Still MVP. If you dont think howard is doing at least that you're deluding yourself.
If LK can move things around to have him in the league he should.
