Dwighthoward

MTV Video Music Awards Host, Kevin Hart, introduced LA Lakers new starting center Dwight Howard to the Staples Center on Thursday night.

Howard appeared early on in the show, joining Hart on stage to respectable cheers from the pro-Laker crowd and delivered a message to fans of his new squad:

“I can’t wait to put on that Laker jersey and go to war…I want to thank ya’ll for welcoming me to LA, this my new home, we’re going to have a great year this year.”

During the bit, Howard presented Hart with one his new Laker jerseys and the comedian put on the new uniform, as it came down below the Hart’s ankles it fired up the host and prompting him to say:

“let’s see how funny it is when Kobe don’t pass you the ball.”

Overall the Howard appearance was at the VMAs was a solid move, and its good to see that “Superman” is getting a pass for chunking the deuces to the Orlando Magic and tarnishing his legacy by joining an elite team in an attempt to win a ring.
