Little kid shows up Dwight Howard by dashing between his legs for layup

Dwight Howard

Is anyone in the NBA having more fun than Dwight Howard?

He’s impersonating Kevin McHale, Instagramming a photo of himself dunking on Kobe Bryant, chanting ‘Howard Sucks’ to mock Lakers fans and giving free-agent advice as if he knows what he’s talking about. On the court, he’s playing better and playing for a better team than he has in years. Oh, and he’s making more than $20 million.

It must be pretty good to be Dwight right now.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $70,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Thursday night’s games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $9,000. Starts at 7pm ET on Thursday. Here’s the FanDuel link.

Howard isn’t even going to a little kid in Sacramento step on his toes. In the following video, Howard:

  • Crosses over the kid for a layup
  • Pretends to steal a checked pass (total tool move)
  • Pressures the kid into a missed fadeaway layup
  • Gives the ball back to the kid (making him even after the fake steal on the check pass)
  • Blocks the kids shot from behind

Don’t worry. The kid gets sweet, sweet revenge:

Is anyone in the NBA having more fun than Dwight Howard? Maybe not, but only because that kid isn’t in the NBA.

    I ripped on Howard just as much as everyone else for all the drama in him leaving Orlando and then his whole mess in LA, but it’s nice to see that he’s happy and having fun again, and it’s also nice to see him doing stuff like that for little kids. I’m sure that kid is going to remember that for the rest of his life, and we all know the NBA is a lot more fun with a happy Dwight Howard in it.

    yep, gotta give credit where it’s due… other players need to get out there and interact with kids like this too…

    good job Dwight.
