USATODAY Says Howard's the Man

Magic's Howard, not Shaq, is NBA's leading big man - USATODAY.com

I've been grumpy for years about Orlando not getting any love from the national press, the ref's or just about anyone else. But that has changed these first five weeks of the season. The Magic are getting recognition for being really good (various ESN rankings have them listed anywhere from 2nd to 4th best team in the league), SVG is getting good press, and Howard is now being talked about as either the best big man in the game, or getting ready to pass Yao as such. Yesterday's talk on ESPN was (in order) LeBron, Howard, then KG for early season MVP honors.

Pretty damn cool. 14-3, 9-1 on the road. Howard ended last night at 23.5 / 14.5 / 2.7 bpg

Enjoy the article if you haven't read it yet.
