Georgia – Dwight Howard
The Atlanta-born Howard loves his home state. Once an elite center, Howard enjoyed a spectacular career as one of the Magic’s greatest-ever players. He won his first NBA championship in his second spell with the Lakers.
Howard also played in Taiwan after he left the Lakers in 2022. The former Defensive Player of the Year is Georgia’s best athlete of the past decade. He’s indeed in the twilight of his career but it’s been a great ride (via The Sports Rush).
