This post is sponsored by T-Mobile.

Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard keyed his team's 3-1 performance last week and has once again come away with our T-Mobile Player of the Week Award.

Howard's percentages actually checked in below his season averages, but he exceeded his usual All-Star self in every other category, with the statistics on the top line shown above. He led the Magic in rebounding in each of their 4 games, which included a season-best 24 against Atlanta on Wednesday. He also tied or led them in blocks 4 times. After his 24-point, 19-rebound, 4-assist, 3-steal, 4-block effort against Minnesota, coach Stan Van Gundy marveled at his dominance. "Absolutely, he could win it every year for the foreseeable future," he said in reference to the NBA's rebounding and blocked-shot titles, while noting that Howard "has a chance" to lead the league in field-goal shooting this year as well. "It's really unbelievable."

Indeed, so much so that I've decided to exclude Howard from future Player of the Week contention. He's too consistently great, so to make these awards a bit more interesting, he's no longer eligible. Sorry, big man.
