In this Dwight Howard biography, we will look at one of the most explosive and dynamic players ever to hit the hardwood floors of the National Basketball Association.
Dwight Howard started out his career in grand fashion by writing down a list of personal goals that he was dedicated to obtaining when he became an adult.
The then eighth-grader has already had two of those goals fulfilled. The first was being the number one pick in the NBA draft; the second was leading his team to a state championship in high school basketball.
Dwight Howard, as a high school basketball player, was dominant yet it was not until he hit the NBA and the professional ranks in which his star really began to shine. Dwight Howard’s continuing excellent professional basketball career started out as a nervous rookie in Orlando. The Orlando Magic had selected him their number one choice in the 2004 NBA draft which was also the number one selection in the entire draft for that year, and the NBA has not been the same ever since.
Born in the State of Georgia and raised by a Georgia Highway Patrolman and his award-winning basketball playing mother, little Dwight took to the game of basketball very early. A star-studded high school career finalized with back to back State Championships games and one win there in Georgia during his senior year, propelled this man-child to prominence and marketability in the NBA.
