Good for LA. Next stop should be the All Star Game, but I don't see it happening this year.

Howard did get those stats in less minutes than Rose did. That's probably why Howard got it.

Yeah Rose also shot 39.5% from the floor and played over 40mpg compared to Dwight's 58.9% from the floor in under 34mpg lol... His team won despite his poor offensive play, whereas the Magic won because of Dwight's outstanding play on both ends.
