Dwight Howard, an eight-time NBA All-Star, made his T1 League debut on Saturday and made a statement with it.

The 36-year-old helped the Taoyuan Leopards defeat the New Taipei CTBC DEA 120-115 with 38 points, 25 rebounds, nine assists, and four blocks.

Did 6-foot-10 center Dwight Howard actually attempt a three-point shot, you might be wondering. Ten times, the response is "yes."

The former Los Angeles Laker not only attempted a startling number of three-point shots, but he also served as the ball handler in pick-and-roll situations and distributed the ball like a point guard.

The performance, which assisted Taoyuan in overturning a double-digit deficit early in the fourth quarter, earned Howard the game's player of the match award.

Throughout his 18-year NBA career, Howard played for seven different teams, appearing in 60 games with the Lakers in 2021–2022, averaging 6.2 points and 5.9 rebounds.

Early in November, the three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and former NBA champion made his move to the Leopards official.

Howard is still hoping to play in the NBA for one more season. In October, he expressed interest in joining the Golden State Warriors to Fox Sports' Shannon Sharpe,
