Dwight Howard Named to All-NBA First Team

The awards just keep on coming for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, whom the NBA announced today is one of the two unanimous selections to the All-NBA First Team; Cleveland's LeBron James is the other. From the NBA's official release:

Howard, an All-NBA First Team selection for the third consecutive season, became the first player to lead the league in rebounding and blocks (1973-74 was the first season blocks were kept as an official statistic) in consecutive seasons, averaging 13.2 rebounds and 2.78 blocks. Howard also paced the league in field goal percentage (.612), becoming the first player to lead the NBA in all three of those categories since the NBA started keeping blocked shots. Howard recorded an NBA-high 64 double-doubles, including three 20-point/20-rebound efforts.

The L.A. Lakers' Kobe Bryant, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, and Miami's Dwyane Wade round out the First Team.

To recount, Howard's the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, a member of the All-Defensive First Team, an All-Star, and now First Team All-NBA.
