Memories Still Golden for Howard

Dwight Howard [1] isn’t living in the past. He just isn’t ready to put it behind him yet.

It’s been more than three months since he won a gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics with the U.S. Men’s Basketball Team and he relives the glory every day. Howard brings his medal on the road with him as he tries to capture another piece of hardware ‘€“ the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.

‘€œIt’s to remind me of something I accomplished this summer, a goal I’ve been wanting to have since I was little,’€ Howard said following the Orlando Magic-Boston Celtics [2] game. ‘€œWatching the Dream Team I always wanted a gold medal, and I have one now. I take it and it reminds me every day to keep pushing for something because reach for the stars and you might get it.’€

If Howard needs another reminder of Olympic success, he can just look down the Magic bench. Original Dream Team member Patrick Ewing [3] is his assistant coach.
