Dwight Howard: From Rookie Season to NBA Stardom

Howard had a solid rookie season with the Magic, and fellow rookie teammate Jameer Nelson. The Magic did not make the post-season in 2004-05, but Howard did average 12 points and 10 rebounds per game. He may not have won a lot of games, but Howard started to make a name for himself in the league.

Still, no matter how successful a player is in his first season, he is still a rookie to the rest of the NBA players.
