It wouldn’t be a high profile free agent leaving his team in favor of another franchise without fans burning their jerseys, so the Los Angeles Lakers fans felt obligated to light a fire to their Dwight Howard jerseys upon the news that he was leaving for the Houston Rockets.

If you don’t believe us, check out some of these tweets that surfaced on twitter:

 

Ah, God bless America.

This isn’t the first time that we have fans go to this extreme and it certainly will not be the last time that this happens.

    I don’t really see the point in burning Howard jerseys. I can understand the Cleveland fans with LeBron, or if Kobe went to OKC or something. But Howard was only here for a year.
