(Gospel Light Minute #187)
He is a professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the NBA. After an outstanding high school career at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, he entered the 2004 NBA Draft, and was selected first overall by the Orlando Magic. He played for the Orlando Magic until 2012 and the Los Angeles Lakers until 2013, before moving on to the Houston Rockets. He is an 8 time NBA All-Star, 7 time All-NBA team selection, 5 time ALL-NBA First Team selection, and 3 time NBA Defensive Player of the Year. He led the Orlando Magic to three division titles and one conference title. In the 2008 Olympics, he was the starting center for Team USA, which went on to win the gold medal. He has led the NBA in rebounds five times and in blocks twice.
Before he was drafted in 2004, he told ESPN that he wanted to use his NBA career and Christian faith to "raise the name of God within the league and throughout the world". He said of his faith, "I'm down to earth. I'm laid back. I just like to make sure people smile. I want to be able to speak to non-Christians so that I can get them saved or change their lives around. Everybody needs to realize that it doesn't matter how old you are or how young you are, you still can be a Christian and live for God. It's not easy but that's why we have God's Word and He forgives us when we do something we shouldn't be doing. You know, God sent His Son to die for us and He paid that sacrifice so you can go to Heaven.
His name is Dwight Howard.
It seems there are more Dwight Howard haters out there this summer than there were three years ago when there were so many millions of LeBron James haters.
Maybe that's just because so much of the venom is coming from Los Angeles, where the fans are spoiled because no one ever leaves the Lakers. Players always want to join the Lakers.
My opinion? STFU, haters.
Dwight Howard is an Americans, and all Americans have a right to choose where they want to work. It's just that in the NBA, it usually takes years to earn that right if you happen to be a superstar.
More on that line of defense in this podcast with Tommy Dee and Moke Hamilton of SNY.
