Dwight Howard just ignited a civil war in the Western part of the United States sports world after he rudely dismissed the begging and the panting from the Los Angeles Lakers to stay, instead opting to leave skid marks from the Staples Center in favor of the comfy Southwestern confines of the Houston Rockets, the media reports.
Howard’s decision pretty much made him public enemy No. 1 in Southern California as the decision by the notoriously indecisive center elicited a fury of vulgar and profane social media lashes from Laker Nation.
Celebs, including other NBA b-ballers weighed in the response that range from hilarious to embittered:
BREAKING: Dwight Howard is going back to Los Angeles. Says she wants to hit up some shops on Rodeo Drive before heading to Houston.
