by October 10, 2013


Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard went halfway around the world, yet he still couldn’t escape Kobe Bryant and his legion of fans. Howard was booed during an exhibition game in the Philippines and heard chants for his former Lakers teammate. Per InterAKTV: “During the Rockets’ preseason game on Thursday night against the Indiana Pacers, Howard was on the receiving end of some boos from the crowd at the Mall of Asia Arena. There were also scattered chants of ‘Kobe! Kobe!’ in reference to Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, with whom Howard had a clash of personality during his one season stint in Los Angeles. Howard didn’t fare much better on the floor, finishing with just nine points and three rebounds. He made just 3-of-9 shots from the field, struggling against bigger Pacers center Roy Hibbert, who blocked three of Howard’s attempts.”
