Rockets mascot hits backwards shot from halfcourt, Dwight Howard fails (Video)


The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t about fun. They are about winning and anything else is a failure. Dwight Howard is all about fun. Although he cares about winning, he prefers to have fun while doing so.

Now that Howard is in Houston, they are having lots of fun. In this clip, Howard is attempting half court shots backwards pregame, and he can’t connect. The Rockets mascot, humbly named “Clutch”, attempts the shot and hits it. So Howard was shown up by a giant bear. Maybe he can play defense on the perimeter now, because the Rockets can’t.
