I’ll say this for Houston Rockets big man Dwight Howard. The guy certainly takes his share of knocks from fans and media – most of them self inflicted. But the guy is an absolute gem when it comes to fan interaction.

Howard put that on display recently when he and his Rockets were in Milwaukee to play the Bucks.

After spending a few minutes shooting around, Howard walked over to the Rockets tunnel and began signing autographs for everybody (and I mean everybody) within range. He even came over to some fans who were recording to the autograph session who asked him to impersonate Shaquille O’Neal.

Howard thought about it for a moment, but decided to bust out the extremely on-point improve impression. Not to be outdone, he was asked to impersonate Charles Barkley as well which Dwight nailed with flying colors.

I guess all that acting experience paid off for D-12.

Pretty amazing how solid the impersonations were – and very cool of Howard to do all of that for the fans (and kids) at the game.
