Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

his wingspan is so short for his height.  It's 7'4 only.  Several 6'6 - 6'10 nba players have higher wingspans than him.  Thats why they say he looks like a dinosaur.

Awesome pics!  :goodjobbro:

Can't get over the last one.
Look at Dwight Howard, look how small and short he is...
keep looking...
and then realise/remember his real size...

He is incredibly smart, but had a horrible reach to height ratio......  He was incredibly slow, and had an incredibly accurate 3 point shot that the NBA failed to utilize to spread the floor.
