Dwight Howard is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
He is an NBA champion, eight-time All-Star, eight-time All-NBA Team honoree, five-time All-Defensive Team member, and three-time Defensive Player of the Year.
The Magic had their finest season to date in the 2007–08 season thanks to a strong performance from Howard. Howard was selected as an All-Star starter in the Eastern Conference.
For one of his dunks, he donned a Superman costume. On February 16, 2008, he won the NBA Slam Dunk Sport by garnering 78% of the fan votes cast by text message or online voting. He is credited with revitalizing the contest with his unique dunks.
For the first time in 12 years, the Magic won a division title and qualified for the playoffs.
It was Howard’s dominance (three games of 20 points and 20 rebounds) that carried Orlando to a five-game victory against the Toronto Raptors in their first-round matchup.
The 91 rebounds that Howard pulled down throughout the series were also more than the whole frontcourt of the Toronto Raptors had combined for.
The Magic were swept by the Pistons in the second round. Howard made his first All-NBA First Team and NBA All-Defensive Second Team appearances this season.
