Howard took the right opportunity to announce it and did it right before he turned 38. Although this could be seen as a sign of him stepping away from basketball, Howard also announced to the world on Twitter that he won’t be retiring before he takes part in an in-season tournament game right after.

Right before making this post, Dwight Howard changed the profile picture and banner for his Twitter page, which apparently made Twitter remove his verification badge.

As Howard is gearing up for the release of the first episode of his new podcast, only time will tell what inside stories we will receive from the 8-time All-Star. ‘Superman’ is not the first and surely won’t be the last NBA star to give podcasting a go as this path has been paved by many before him.

The NBA world is diving into podcasting

In recent years, we have started to see a boom in the number of NBA players with podcasts. Although some are extremely dedicated and are bringing out weekly content, there are many that are making it even though it is just once every few months.

One take at a time

I did not follow the traditional route to become a journalist, but my love for basketball and writing has brought me here. Seeing LeBron James? Cleveland Cavaliers make the iconic comeback from a 1-3 deficit in 2016 changed everything for a young engineering aspirant within me. Rather than simply looking at the game, I love to analyze how each player contributes to a team using BPM (Box Plus Minus) and other advanced metrics.
