Dwight Howard is one of the most dominant big men in the NBA today, and is in his first season as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. After coming to Los Angeles via trade from the Orlando Magic last summer, Howard followed a long line of legendary centers to wear purple and gold and take the center position for the Lakers.
Today, Lakers Nation would like to wish a very heartfelt happy birthday to Howard, who turned 27 years-old today. Howard has a long career ahead of him in the NBA, most of which will hopefully be as a member of the Lakers.
Howard is a three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, and hopes to add to his trophy case during his time in Los Angeles.
Happy birthday, Dwight!
