Dwight Howard has been playing in a professional league in Taiwan this year and has looked like a legit beast on the court.
The league held an all-star weekend similar to the NBA and the former dunk contest winner took part in the three-point contest.
NBACentral shared a clip of Dwight Howard’s go at the competition.

Although he wasn’t known as a shooter during his time in the NBA, Howard’s turn here didn’t look all that bad. Even if he looks like he’s shooting on a Nerf hoop.
Nevertheless, basketball fans couldn’t help but make jokes about the whole thing. Regardless of Dwight Howard thriving over in Taiwan.
Lol this like the first time you try the 3pt contest on 2k and have no idea how to time the shooting

When it comes down to it, Dwight Howard is absolutely thriving in Taiwan. Even if NBA fans want to make jokes about his three-point shooting.
