Found March 18, 2014 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
PLAYERS: Dwight Howard
TEAMS: Houston Rockets
Dwight Howard isn’t the only one in his family hooping for a Houston team. Howard’s girlfriend – and babymama’s number 4 or 6 depending on which rumor you are rolling with – has joined the “Houston Sparks” semi-pro franchise. Vest played college ball at Chico state. I guess she’s bored playing with her rats and being a stay at home mom… I’m not joking, Christine has a rodent menagerie. Good luck with the Houston Sparks. Maybe the WNBA is next.   photos via @christineybobo
