Chat Transcript: Dwight Howard

After facing Howard this season, Tim Duncan said, "He is so developed. He doesn't look like a 19 or 20-year-old. He has so much promise and I am just glad that I will be out of the league when he is peaking."

Kevin Garnett recently echoed Duncan's sentiments after the Magic paid a visit to Minneapolis.

"That kid (Howard) is a freak of nature, man," Garnett said. "I don't know what they put in the milk these days for these young kids, but that kid is a freak of nature. I was nowhere near that physically talented. I wasn't that gifted, as far as body and physical presence."

Dwight's numbers speak for themselves. He averages 15.5 ppg, 12.3 rpg (2nd in league) and has a double-double in 53 games (as of April 4). In November, Howard pulled down 21 points and 20 rebounds against Charlotte - making him the youngest player in NBA history to record a 20-20 game.

The 20-year-old, who was also recently invited to participate for Team USA this summer, has become quite a star in Orlando and his fan base seems to go larger by the day. On Tuesday, Dwight chatted live with his fans on Check out what the rising star had to say about the recent winning streak, his long-term plans and much more.
