Dwight Howard has not been too healthy in the past few years. It’s hard to remember when Howard was in tip top shape. During the Western Conference Finals, the Rockets lost 4-1 to the Warriors and Howard did not appear to be hurt. Dwight told Texans Radio that he played through a torn MCL and meniscus during the playoffs. One would be very skeptical to this report, but the big man said it was true:

If Dwight is telling the truth, he is definitely a beast for being able to play through all that. No one knew of this incident, but Howard was still able to average 16.4 points and 10.4 rebounds during the playoffs. The Dwight haters are going to call out shenanigans on this one, but we’ll let you decide.
