PLAYERS: Dwight Howard
TEAMS: Houston Rockets
Dwight Howard loves to have a good time. I still think the #1 reason he didn’t get along with Kobe and want to stay in LA is because he wanted to do stuff like this and have his team this it was cool. At heart, he just wants to be a big kid. Hit your two step young Dwight. Just don’t be surprised when the Houston media calls your antics clownish when you don’t deliver a title in the next 2 years.
