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.
