It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
We know that Dwight Howard likes drama. If you believe ESPN, he’s more concerned with where he’s going than where he is. We know that Dwight Howard likes missing free throws. Fine, he might not like to, but he hasn’t shot over 60% from the line since his rookie season seven years ago, including 49% over the past two seasons. One thing you might not know about Howard is that he REALLY likes candy.
We all like candy. But Dwight Howard, he loves candy to gross proportions. How much does he love candy? He used to keep boxes of it in his nightstand.
“Am I a big candy person? That’s an understatement. My pantry is full of candy. Skittles just sent me 30 pounds of Skittles. I have a nightstand full of every candy you could think of. Skittles, blow pops, Laffy Taffy, Reese’s Pieces, Kit Kats, all types of candy was in the drawer.”
In 2011, the Skittles brand, which is owned by Wrigley, surprised Howard with a pinball machine at his Orlando home that would hold and dispense up to 30 packs of Skittles.
But according to Howard, he has had to remove candy from his bedside as he continues to try to get back into shape after his back surgery this past offseason. Well, he didn’t remove the candy. ”They had to clear it out,” Howard said Who is they? His His parents? Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol? Stan and Jeff Van Gundy?
I wonder if Jay-Z will let Howard have candy in Brooklyn next year. And I’m guessing Howard is wondering the same.
