Dwight Howard never went to college, but he's still getting to experience the world of recruiting.
The Los Angeles Lakers tossed up a billboard to show their love for Dwight. The Dallas Mavericks are reportedly ready to make him the face of the franchise . And the Golden State Warriors have dispatched Stephen Curry to help in their pitch . But none of them have found as creative a niche as rapper Slim Thug, who is doing his best to woo Howard to the Rockets in his native Houston using a number of talking points.

As a ardent Dwight in LA supporter I obviously want him to re...
