Dwight Howard has been named to the Taiwanese league’s first-ever All-Star Game at the age 37. He will also take part in the three-point contest.

For a player who made 21% of his three-pointers in the NBA, that is significant recognition.

The eight-time NBA All-Star is averaging 23.4 points and 8.7 rebounds in 32 minutes per game for the Taoyuan Leopards over 7 games.
