Houston Rockets Star Dwight Howard Joins In ‘Howard Sucks’ Chant Against The LA Lakers

Houston Rockets Star Dwight Howard Joins In ‘Howard Sucks’ Chant Against The LA Lakers

The Houston Rockets handed out a 134-108 beatdown in Wednesday night’s game at the Staples Centre as former Lakers star Dwight Howard returned to face his former team for the first time since leaving as a free agent last year.

And the Rockets centre received a warm welcome from the home crowd.

Lakers fans booed and jeered Howard during the warm-ups, 45 minutes before the game had even started, and continued throughout.

But it wasn’t long until Howard was enjoying the last laugh, as the Rockets ran the Lakers ragged. Howard pitched in with 20 points and 13 rebounds himself.

It was clear to see how much Howard was enjoying his return to the Staples Centre as he even mocked himself by joining in with the crowd’s ‘Howard sucks’ chant.

Wednesday’s result sees the Rockets extend their winning streak to eight games. Not bad considering they’re being led by a guy who ‘sucks’.
