Dwight Howard wins third consecutive Defensive Player of the Year
The Orlando Magic are in serious trouble right now as they are in danger of getting bounced for the playoffs entirely by the Atlanta Hawks. Despite the bad news and the fact that they are no longer favored in NBA picks throughout these playoffs, the perennial All-Star center Dwight Howard did get some good news before the NBA playoffs began by winning his third consecutive Defensive Player of the Year.
Even though Dwight Howard is still one shy of both Dikembe Mutombo and Ben Wallace for the most all-time (4), the up-and-coming center has had arguably the best season of his career in the NBA and actually was considered for the NBA MVP award which will most likely go to Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose.
With Howard and the Magic almost certainly on their way out of the playoffs, the All-Star center might considered another location when he becomes a free agent.
