Dwight Howard may not have secured his return to the NBA but he definitely knows a thing or two about what it takes to win.
Ballislife on Twitter shared an Instagram video featuring Howard choosing his all-time starting five.
Unsurprisingly, Howard decided to only go with NBA big men for his lineup.
He selected Hakeem Olajuwon to play point guard, Wilt Chamberlain to be small forward, Shaquille O’Neal as power forward, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as center.
Howard himself would play shooting guard.
Confident with his choices, Howard said this proposed roster would be “unstoppable.”

Usually, NBA stars choose a wide variety of players when they are dreaming up their all-time top five.
But Howard elected to take an interesting angle and only selected power forwards and centers.
That would certainly make this team bigger than just about any other, but would it really help them score more?
During his 18 years in the league, Howard averaged 15.7 points and 11.8 rebounds.
His career was loaded with a lot of wonderful victories but troubled moments too.
He didn’t always get along well with his teammates and moved around from team to team often.
Despite those troubles, Howard was an All-Star eight times, a blocking champion twice, and Defensive Player of the Year three times.
Toward the tail-end of his time in the league, he earned his first championship with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Howard seems to be a better and more cordial teammate than he once was and is eager to prove it.
He is trying to make his way back to the league after playing overseas.
