Over the past 12 NBA seasons few players have been more dominant inside the paint than the Houston Rockets’ Dwight Howard. The eight-time All-Star entered the league as the first overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft fresh out of high school.
“Coming into the league you had a mission,” says CBN Sports’ Shawn Brown. “What was the mission?”
“My mission was to preach God’s word, you know, in the NBA,” says Dwight. “Use the NBA as a platform for God. And when I’m on the floor, you know, let people see, you know, the God in me.”
But for a nineteen year old entering the NBA, Dwight says it was a daily struggle to stay focused on God.
“There’s times where it was very overwhelming. Where it’s like man, this is so much. Everything is at my disposal, you know, all I got to do is just go reach and it’s mine.”
