Dwight Howard Has A Fever

And the only cure for it is the World Cup.

by Chris O’Leary / @olearychris

With the World Cup in full swing, some of adidas’ American athletes are in full-on rally mode.

Dwight Howard, Reggie Bush, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and BJ Upton are all taking part in the stripes’ “Every Team Needs A Fan” promotion.

The guys are trying to lure their fellow Americans to support their team in South Africa with online activities, contests, quizzes and videos on adidas soccer’s Facebook page.

They’re also competing against each other to see who can generate the most US support. If you haven’t seen enough of Dwight Howard acting crazy in front of a camera, check out his videos below.

    Is there anything Dwight Howard can’t do? Oh wait…

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    lol at LD…but hes a funny dude (with limited post moves and Shaqalicious freetrow touch)

  • LD

    I like how Kobe seeks out Hakeem Olajuwon for help on posts moves and Dwight seeks help from Patrick Ewing. You gotta know who to ask.

  • Dave

    Am I the only person who thinks D12 is not funny or interesting but just really egotistical in that hiding his insecurities way?

  • Goattree

    this is lame. US is going to lose to Ghana tomorrow.

  • Goattree

    I wish Dwight would spend more time practicing his free throws and less time in front of the camera.

  • barnabusb

    Can someone PLEASE tell Dwight he’s not as funny as he thinks he is? These are just embarrassing.

  • Rice

    ^ You all are just jealous of his ability of rebouding, blocking, and defending. Oh yea, I forgot NONE of you made it to NBA…not EVEN your school teams. lol at you haters.

  • Yesse

    Hahahaha. Since Dwight isnt a free agent, looks like he got alot of time in the summer.

  • ripslam

    Dave: Yeah, pretty much, you are. People b*tch when guys like Perkins won’t crack a smile but then they get pissed when someone actually wants to be funny. Lighten up.

  • JTaylor21

    What are you suggesting LD that ewing didn’t have post moves, be real. dont let your love for kobe and his so-called post moves blind you. By the way where was that post game during the finals huh.

  • andynorstrom

    I would defend dwight because he’s a funny dude, but americans should stay away from football.

  • rainman10

    No post moves actually shows how good Dwight is. He averaged 18.3 ppg this season. You know who else did that? Pau Gasol. Ya Ya Gasol is the 2nd option in LA. He averaged just over 20 a game in Memphis for 2 seasons when he was the man. Dwight did the same in Orlando. People want so much out of this guy.

  • R2J

    Dwight improved a lot from last year, his next step is making his free throws. Other than that,
    he’s funny alright. If you think that’s funny you should see him make fun of his coach, Stan Van Gundy. It’s HILLARIOUS!!!

  • backboard

    ´no, its not

  • T-Money

    dwight clowning would work better if he were funny. just saying.

    Why doesn’t anyone seek Michael Jordan for help? Oh wait, I remember, cause MJ don’t give a sh!t about anyone else.

  • Sausage
