Jack Nicholson Talked To Dwight Howard About Staying With LA Lakers

Cities are pulling out all the stops to bring Dwight Howard to town. The Houston Rockets had Yao Ming and Hakeem Olajuwon help pitch the Rockets to the big man. A restaurant chain in Dallas offered free chicken tenders for life if Dwight came to Dallas.

The Los Angeles Lakers might be winning in that category.

Steve Nash promised Dwight a statue outside the Staples Center, not that he has any authority to do so. Time Warner offered Dwight Howard a television show if he stays in Los Angeles. They also got Hollywood A-Lister and Lakers fanatic Jack Nicholson to personally make a pitch to Dwight.

I don’t remember LeBron James being offered so much by so many cities to come to their town. He certainly would’ve cashed in better than Dwight Howard is this off-season.

There haven’t been any credible reports that Dwight Howard is interested in being on television, though his personality certainly seems made for TV.
