Breaking down the new-look Rockets

Kobe Bryant may have unfollowed Dwight Howard after the center ditched Los Angeles for Houston over the off-season. But even though Howard might be out of mind for the Lakers star, the Rockets big addition definitely isn’t out of sight for the Lakers, even in China.

The Lakers are in Beijing on a preseason tour similar to what the Rockets just wrapped up in Manila and Taipei, and as the Los Angeles Times reports, Dwight Howard was there to greet him. Sort of.

Howard’s likeness was plastered all over a recreational court across the street from where the Lakers have been practicing and will play later this week. There are several larger-than-life likenesses of the center with the phrase “All in for Dwight.”

Evidently Howard was there earlier this year on a promotional tour for Addidas.

Though the Lakers arrive on the other end of the arena, they’ll be under the watchful eyes of Dwight Howard the entire time they’re there.
