Early Life

On December 8, 1985, Dwight David Howard was born in Atlanta. He was hailed as a miracle kid when he was taken to Sheryl and Dwight Howard Sr., as his mother previously gave birth to seven stillborn children. Because both of Dwight’s parents were famous basketball players, he was predestined to be an athlete. When Dwight was nine years old, he began basketball training. Dwight quickly got acquainted with the sport’s fundamentals. He looked up to Michael Jordan and emulated his style. Throughout his life, Dwight has been motivated by Kevin Garnett, whom he also idolizes.

Before starting to play for his squad at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy High School, Dwight had already mastered the sport and caught the attention of the NBA selection committee.

Dwight immediately rose to the position of team captain, helping his group qualify for the state finals. He also won the MVP title and numerous other “Player of the Year” honors during his time in high school.


Dwight joined the “Orlando Magic Club” in 2004 and immediately contributed to the team’s season-long success. He was the youngest player to accomplish this feat, scoring 112 points and grabbing 10 rebounds before the end of his first season.

Dwight came back stronger than ever for his second season with the squad. He made great improvements in the areas that his coach believed were his weakest, and he assisted his team in qualifying for the 2006 Rookie Challenge of NBA All-Star Weekend.

Dwight didn’t give up, even if his efforts weren’t enough to help his team advance to the championship game. He finished the second season with an average of 20 points and 20 rebounds per game. 

Dwight finished the 2009 Eastern Conference with an average of 40.14 rebounds, helping his club achieve their first-ever championship win.

Dwight joined the “Los Angeles Lakers” in 2012, but his performance suffered when he had a back injury and experienced stress as a result of the criticism he faced for leaving the “Orlando Magic”. Dwight had to have back surgery during the 2012–2013 season.

Dwight left the “Orlando Magic” in 2013 to play for the Houston Rockets, but he wasn’t able to match his performance there.

In his first game for the “Atlanta Hawks” in 2016, Dwight performed substantially better than he had for the Los Angeles Lakers.

He started playing for the “Charlotte Hornets” in October of the next season and then transferred to the “Washington Wizards” the following season, where he has been ever since.
