Play HORSE Against Dwight Howard

We just received word from our friends at Charitybuzz that one lucky fan will get to go head-to-head in the playground game of all playground games against Superman himself … Check it:

“With a big man’s body, a small forward’s hangtime, the hands of a point guard and the heart of a champion, the Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard has won the adoration of fans around the world. Now, he’s taking that heart one step further with an incredible experience to benefit The New Look Foundation. Dwight Howard is auctioning the chance for one lucky fan to test their skills against his in a high-throttle game of HORSE!

Dwight Howard led the NBA in rebounds before he was even old enough to take a legal drink. One fan will have the rare opportunity to spend an afternoon shooting hoops with this incredible athlete while benefitting a great cause at the same time. The exclusive experience is up for auction on charitybuzz.com through Sept. 2 at: http://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/215610.

The New Look Foundation was founded by Usher Raymond IV, who understood early on that youth are the key to successful communities. He established the New Look Foundation to draw attention to the importance of their ideas, hard work and success. Every year, New Look mentors hundreds of youth as they discover their power as global leaders.

Charitybuzz raises funds for nonprofits around the globe through incredible online auctions, giving its bidders exclusive opportunities to make a difference.”

    HA HA Good one EBoy. Superboy fits him way better than superman.

    “before he was old enough to take a legal drink.” so he was drinking illegally at that point?

  • Yesse

    Real superman? Like Eboy said, it is the real superboy. The diesel is the real superman.

  • total scrotal implosion

    All it takes to win is a midrange jumper. They should have had durant do this, so the person wont walk away with the thought that theyre better than a nba player in horse

    Superboy, haha. Thats gotta stick now.

  • NicktheQuick

    This one is easy guys: shoot free throws. Whoever’s writing articles for charitybuzz must be a close relative of Isaiah Thomas. Heart of a champion, hands of a point guard, next it’ll be the offensive prowess of the Dream.

    send stuart tanner to compete

    You guys are trying too hard. Hook shots from 8 feet out will be enough.

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/features/overdribbling chiqo

    or you could tell him it was the closing minutes of the fourth quarter and svg would make him sit down. then you’d be free to do whatever without him being able to play.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ The Promise

    If you can make an 18 foot jumpshot, you will destroy him.

  • http://thephotoriot.com davidR

    with your back to the basket, spin or drop step into a baby hook. you’ll win in 5 shots.

  • Robb

    facing the basket, from the free throw line. Gotcha.

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/features/overdribbling chiqo

    but he’ll own you underhanded from halfcourt. because those are the shots that really matter in the grand scheme of things.

  • cinquet

    yall forget that he is an nba pro, didnt he make 3 threes in the allstar game. Ie seen him shoot around before games, he can actually shoot. but for some odd reason just doesnt do it. And the deisel is not superman anymore its mos def dwight now.

  • T-Money

    I’ve said it before but Dwight has to be the only 1st team All-NBA’er in the history of the league who makes you wonder at least once or twice a game if he started to play ball 3 weeks ago.

  • Red

    Shaqs a lame, tries too hard. Dwight’s a stand up guy, and all you dudes acting like you’d beat ‘superman’ even in HORSE, sound mad wack. Funny to see guys heighten egos online.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    It’s just HORSE, it’s not as if guys are saying they’d beat Dwight in a 5 on 5 game or outrebound him. It’s not like Dwight is known or takes pride in being a great shot maker either. I think people just have issue with the ridiculous Charitybuzz write-up. “Hands of a point guard”, indeed.

  • mike

    dwight pree good at trick shots……

  • Anthony

    @mike, tell him to include some post moves in his bag of trick shots then ^^
