Lakers center Dwight Howard will make nearly $20 million playing basketball this season. The man inside the Los Angeles Kings mascot suit will probably make zero dollars dancing around at Kings games this year.
So when the two got together for a little contest during the Lakers’ Wednesday morning shoot-around, you would think that Howard should dominate. Right? Even if the dude inside the Bailey costume (Bailey?!) is a baller, he’s shooting with (essentially) puffy cloth gloves on and, oh yeah, a GIANT LION HEAD with very little vision.
Of course, Howard said that he let Bailey win. Right. And he’s also letting the hoop own his career 59% free throw percentage.
