The whole “Dwight Howard finally won a championship in Orlando” thing got old really quick.

But Howard’s journey from superstar to nomad to punchline to champion has been a long and unexpected one, which is why a player who logged only a few seconds of playing time in the Lakers’ championship clinching win was trending on Twitter last night.

These “Twitter reacts...” stories are typically reserved for noteworthy or viral moments for the Magic (like we last did for the return of Jonathan Isaac....sigh).

Like it or not, Dwight winning his first championship 16 years after he was drafted by Orlando, as he played alongside a legend he denied a trip to the 2009 NBA Finals, while playing for the team that denied him a championship that same year, is a noteworthy footnote in Magic history.

So before we get to some Magic offseason content, let’s look at how Twitter reacted to Dwight Howard finally winning a championship.

As always, the tweets speak for themselves....
