Dwight Howard Named To All-NBA First Team

New, comments

Today, the league announced the All-NBA teams and for the second time in his career, Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic was named to the All-NBA First team.

Via the Orlando Magic:

Howard, an All-NBA First Team selection for the second consecutive season, led the NBA in rebounding (13.8 rpg) and blocks (2.9 bpg), becoming only the fourth player to pace the league in both categories since 1973-74, the first season where blocks were kept as an official statistic. Howard led the Magic in scoring (20.6 ppg), while shooting .572 from the field. His 63 double-doubles ranked second in the league (David Lee, New York, 65). This is Howard’s third All-NBA selection overall (First Team, 2007-08; Third Team, 2006-07).

Congratulations to Superman on a deserving honor. 

Statistically, here's a rundown of how the big fella faired during the regular season:
