Dwight Howard and Rick Ross

Few would dispute that both Rick Ross and Dwight Howard are at the tops of their professions, but each is still chasing that elusive solidifier. For Howard, it's a championship; for Ross — despite the critical acclaim of Teflon Don — it's an undeniable classic album. People question their past, but you can't take away from their performance.
