Rockets celebrate Dwight Howard’s birthday with silly string attack (VIDEO)

Dec 9, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

Dwight Howard turned 28 on Sunday. (Maybe that’s why Kobe decided to not play Friday and wait until Sunday… nah.)

Howard celebrated by dropping 20 points and grabbing 22 rebounds on his old Orlando Magic team (you knew he’d be up for that game) then the team went out bowling with his Rockets’ teammates — who showered him with silly string when he walked in the door.

This is the kind of collegiate atmosphere Howard likes around a team, and it’s just not how Kobe Bryant‘s Lakers roll. The Rockets are 15-7 to start the season and Howard is averaging 17 points and 13 rebounds a game (slightly more efficiently than he did last season in Los Angeles, but not up to his peak). For now, Howard is enjoying Houston, but we’ll see how it goes when the season rolls on and things get more serious.

    “This is the kind of collegiate atmosphere Howard likes around a team…l.”

    If by “collegiate” you mean “extremely immature and designed to stroke a very fragile star’s child-like mind” then yes, yes it is.

    They went bowling? Did Andrew Bynum recommend the spot?

    Not a fan of this guy ever since he left Orlando and the Lakers the way he did. But at least he’s having fun in Houston. Glad to see he’s alright!
