To say Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard likes attention would be an understatement. Of course, when that spotlight gets too bright, he tends to shy away – something Los Angeles Lakers fans are well aware of.

But the talented big man will never be confused with being modest, which is why he’s probably loving the idea of the Houston Rockets giving away a Dwight Howard action figure at an upcoming game.

While the Toronto Raptors gave away Drake inspired OVO t-shirt’s last week (which just so happened to be one of the most in-demand giveaways we’ve ever seen), the Rockets will attempt to best that with their action figure, which is sure to be a hit.

All Ball has a video on the promotion which you can watch here (embedding is disabled).

The idea of an action figure isn’t exactly new as many teams do this – though none of them are modeled after their own players.

The figures, presented by Memorial Hermann will be given out to the first 3,000 attendees (both children and adults).
