Surprising place still selling Dwight Howard Lakers jerseys!

LAX airport is the third largest in the United States and also happens to be located in Los Angeles, which is, you guessed it, the same city as the Lakers.

Harden on non-Dwight teammates: 'Rest of the guys are role players'

The Houston Rockets have been trying to replicate the model of the three-star super team for a couple of seasons now.
