Now that the Dwightmare is over, it seems we may have shifted to the Dwight Chick-Flick. I guess being in Hollywood can have that effect on a newcomer. Apparently, when Dwight Howard met Laker legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Monday, it brought him to tears.

If you don’t believe me, just check out his tweet:

Hopefully, Dwight and Kareem will get out of those street clothes, and hit the court together sometime soon because Howard could certainly use some of Kareem’s post moves to add to his arsenal. After all, basketball season isn’t as far away as you’d think.
