Links: Dwight Howard gets TECHFIT

Because even Superman needs support…

Tim Duncan and Dwight Howard were on hand to serve as models and spokespeople, and the two of them spoke about how important having the extra padding and support has been for them.

I could give you some of my notes from the press conference, but I thought Dwight Howard would do a better job explaining it than I could. Take it away, Dwight…
