After an offseason highlighted by workouts with the legendary Hakeem Olajuwon, Orlando's Dwight Howard is leaving imprint on the NBA season early. Howard, who netted his second Eastern Conference Player of the Week Award after last week's games, is leading NBA.com's Race to the MVP rankings. The 4-time All-Star is averaging nearly 23 points and 12 rebounds per game, helping guide the Magic to a fast 15-5 start.
The "Shades of Grey" Beast Commander is exactly what the name suggests. The shoe features a synthetic upper, with a grey gradient effect applied to the side panels. Black is used for the inner liner, tongue and Three Stripes on the lateral side panel, while lime green detailing throughout. One of Dwight's many nicknames, "The ManChild," appears on the tongue in metallic silver, while his signature "Hey Wooooooooorld" Twitter greeting is seen on a tab placed on the lateral ankle. You can pick up this style of the Beast Commander today over at Eastbay.
