Who does your average athlete thank after a big win?

God? Yep, pretty high on the list.

Mom/dad? Sure, you'll get that sometimes.

The Fans? Often the cheers of the crowd will be given crazy credit for a team's ability to win or lose.

But high-flying Dwight Howard took it to a new level after his Orlando Magic dispatched the Boston Celtics Sunday afternoon in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal tilt, 101-82.

Dwight gave a shoutout to his Twitter followers in a post-game interview with TNT's David Aldridge.

Howard is a very social media savvy guy, it seems. In addition to his 61,000-plus followers on Twitter, he also has a Facebook page and blog to interact with his fans. But unless those thousands of dedicated No. 12 jersey-wearing supporters are either suiting up for the Conference Finals against Cleveland or kidnapping LeBron James, that may be the last thanks they get.

Still looks like a Fail Whale for the Magic with Cleveland winning in 6.
