Dwight has been having a pretty good year, what with Orlando currently battling the Lakers in the NBA finals and winning the 2009 NBA Defensive Player of the Year award. He was also the starting center for the U.S. Men's Senior National Basketball Team at the 2008 Olympics, bringing back the gold after 2004's humiliating bronze. Here's Howard's obligatory honor statement:
"It's an honor to be named as the cover athlete for NBA LIVE 10," said Howard. "This year has been a crazy ride and this is a cool way to cap it off. Of course - there is one more thing I'm on the hunt for that would complete it."
With the Lakers leading 2-1 over the Magic, he might just have to settle for the box art.
