Posted May 19, 2009

NBA Orlando Magic basketball player Dwight “Superman” Howard is best well known for wearing a Superman costume during the NBA 2008 slam dunk competition. The video of him dunking with the costume has well over 2 million views on YouTube. Over the weekend, the Orlando Magic knocked the Boston Celtics out of the Playoffs.

During a post-game interview, Howard had to thank several thousand people. This includes God and over 60,000 followers on Twitter. Other NBA players that have Twitter accounts include Steve Nash, Shaq, Jalen Rose, Rashad McCants, Brian Cardinal, Troy Murphy, Jason Richardson, etc. Tech-savvy Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has an account, but found himself getting in trouble with the NBA for dissing a ref during a game on Twitter.
