Rendon Labador Dares Dwight Howard to a 1V1 to Check if He Is Qualified to Represent Team Philippines

Rendon Labador to Dwight Howard: “1V1?”

RENDON LABADOR – The motivational speaker is wondering if NBA superstar Dwight Howard is qualified to represent the Philippines national basketball team.

Dwight Howard is a professional basketball player from the United States. He began his career in the National Basketball Association (NBA), achieving notable accomplishments, including an NBA championship, eight All-Star selections, eight All-NBA Team distinctions, five All-Defensive Team memberships, and three Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Primarily playing as a center, Howard attended Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy during his high school years. Opting not to pursue college, he entered the 2004 NBA draft and was chosen as the first overall pick by the Orlando Magic. Howard left a lasting impact on the Magic, setting various franchise and league records and guiding the team to the 2009 NBA Finals.

After eight seasons with Orlando, Howard was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2012. He had three separate one-year stints with the Lakers, culminating in an NBA Finals victory in 2020. Throughout his career, Howard also played for the Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Hornets, Washington Wizards, and Philadelphia 76ers.

As Team USA revealed its 41-player pool for the 2024 Paris Olympics, Dwight Howard dropped a somewhat humorous reaction. Despite not being included in the pool led by LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Steph Curry, and the current NBA MVP Joel Embiid, Howard, who is presently competing for the Philippine team Strong Group Athletics in the 33rd Dubai International Basketball Championship, dropped a subtle hint about his interest in playing for Gilas.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Howard, with a Philippine flag emoji, quipped, “Guess I’m playing for the Philippines.” Among those who reacted is Rendon Labador. In a comment on the Facebook post of Basketball Daily, he noted: “Let me check if you are qualified to represent team Philippines. 1V1?”
