After signing a four-year contract with the Houston Rockets, good for nearly $90 million dollars – Dwight Howard isn’t exactly strapped financially.

Wanting to share his good graces with his teammates, the self-proclaimed ‘Superman’ decided to go on a shopping spree and purchase some relatively lavish gifts for every player on the roster.

So what did Howard spend his money on? Well, for James Harden he purchased a Audemars Piguet watch – a timepiece which can range from $15,000 to $70,000:

The wristwatch theme continued for other teammates as well, like Chandler Parson and Greg Smith who were each given a fresh Rolex:

Howard didn’t give watches to everybody though. For some players, like point guard Aaron Brooks, the center dropped five figures on a pair of rare Nike Air Mags modeled after those worn in the film, “Back To The Future II”.

Needless to say, sounds like Howard may have a second career as a Secret Santa once his playing days come to an end.
