Dwight Howard

My favorite part of the wonderful All-Star Saturday Night was Man-Child Dwight Howard's slapping a sticker on the backboard glass TWELVE AND A HALF FEET HIGH with his left hand while dunking the ball with his right. I have yet to find a picture of this online, but the sticker was a picture of himself with the wonderful following words written on it:

All things through Christ - Phil 4:13

which refers to:

Phillippians 4:13 ~ I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

It is a shame TNT did not recognize this and give more coverage to this divine intervention.
It is a shame Howard did not go on to win the contest, not only because the dunk was deserving, but because he had the conviction to use the grand stage he was blessed with as an outlet to proclaim his faith. Agree or disagree, one must respect that.

Kudos and much respect to Dwight Howard, a man of God.
