Dwight Howard's attempt to run the point ends in complete disaster

In the modern NBA, there are centers that can do it all. Karl-Anthony Towns is the prototypical 21st-century big man; he can post up, grab rebounds and box out but is just as adept at playing provider, shooting from the perimeter and dazzling opponents with his handles. 

However, not all players at the five spot have the all-around arsenal of a Towns or Joel Embiid - certainly not Dwight Howard. 

The Atlanta Hawks center has been enjoying a renaissance of kinds since moving home in the summer; he is averaging 14.5 points, 12.9 rebounds and playing a prominent role in the offence. 

However, he still isn't a point guard. This season Dwight is averaging 1.1 assists, and his career number is 1.5. During last night's loss to the Phoenix Suns, Howard gave a prime example of why his assist stats are so low. 

The 30-year-old collected a rebound in the first quarter and attempted to run the fast break. He tried to find Mike Muscala with a cutting half-court pass but only managed to hit the backboard, with the ball bouncing into the hands of Tyson Chandler.

It's actually pretty impressive to see just how badly his attempted pass was, and head coach Mike Budenholzer's face painted the perfect picture. 

To make things even better, Howard then proceeded to blame Muscala for not getting onto the end of a pass that even the BFG wouldn't have collected.

Stick to what you know Dwight, passing isn't for you.
