The Los Angeles Lakers’ Playoffs hopes have been dashed by the Spurs, but throughout the season, they have been one of the most buzzed about teams league-wide. One of the main talking points was the arrival of Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic, which was reminiscent of Shaquille O’Neal’s transplant in 1996. Howard becomes a free agent in July, and while it’s too early to speculate whether or not he’ll stay in LA, it’s certain that “Superman” will be a valuable asset wherever he lands. The seven-time NBA All-Star is one of the most dominant big men of the last decade, providing countless memorable moments and performances. Since kicking off his career in 2004, Howard’s been wearing the Three Stripes of adidas. In 2010, he received his first signature sneaker, the adidas Beast Commander, and since then, his line has produced some of the best big-men shoes on the market. Take a look back at The Complete Tech History of Dwight Howard Signature Sneakers.
