At 21 years old, Dwight Howard has already pushed Shaquille O’Neal out of a spot in the NBA record book.
Howard had 21 points, 19 rebounds and replaced O’Neal as the NBA’s youngest player to reach 3,000 rebounds, leading the Orlando Magic to a 95-70 victory over the ice cold and injured New Jersey Nets on Friday night.
“He’s amazing,” Magic point guard Jameer Nelson said. “Every night he brings it. Every practice he brings it. He is the leader of this team.”
