Welcome folks – we’ve now crossed the line into pure absurdity.

In addition to getting a reality television show if he remains with the Los Angeles Lakers, Dwight Howard is also receiving phone calls from celebrity Laker fans who want the big man to remain in the gleaming lights of Hollywood.

According to J.A. Adande, via Dave McMenamin, Dwight Howard has had at least one phone conversation (possible more) with uber Laker fan Jack Nicholson about staying in purple and gold.

Per McMenamin:

According to @jadande, Dwight Howard has already spoken on the phone with Jack Nicholson about remaining with the Lakers

Remember when free agents would meet with prospective teams at a nice dinner, say about 5 or 6 PM and they’d inform of their decision them a few days later through a simple telephone call? Yeah, me either.

The spectacle that is free agency in professional sports has almost taken itself to a new height this year, with Dwight Howard loving every single minute of it.

I’m telling you, we’re just a few days away from prop planes writing I love you notes to Dwight and company in the clouds.
