Dwight Howard joins Lakers fans in ‘Howard sucks’ chant (Video)


The Houston Rockets traveled to L.A. on Wednesday night to take on the Los Angeles Lakers, where center Dwight Howard was welcomed by an unpleasant chant from the fans. Lakers fans began chanting “Howard sucks” throughout the game, but the big man was unfazed as he listened in with a smile on his face.

In fact, Howard enjoyed the chant so much that he decided to join in on the fun.

Here is the video to prove it:

In the end, Howard got the last laugh as the Rockets defeated the Laker, 134-108, and he finished with 20 points and 13 rebounds.

If that stat line is what a player who sucks can record, then the Rockets fan base has to be thrilled to see what Howard can do when he sheds that label.
