Dwight Howard Being Offered TV Shows By the Lakers and Rockets


The most prized free agent in the NBA is being offered up the world. Well, that and a whole lot of chicken fingers. Dwight Howard’s choices this summer are between five teams—the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors and Atlanta Hawks—and two of those are offering him television opportunities (with the Lakers even asking their A-List celebrity fans to beg the big fella to stay). Per ESPN: “According to a source familiar with Dwight’s meeting with Houston, the Rockets discussed TV opportunities for DH on Comcast SportsNet Houston […] There had already been preliminary talks between Dwight Howard and Time Warner on a show if he returned to the Lakers … TWC is desperate for original programming as it is and if giving Dwight his own show helps the Lakers it’s a win-win.”

    He just needs to sign a one year extension and he’ll have several TV Shows and websites for the season.

    Damn, where is this world headed to…

  • OfftheWall87

    Really? Dude needs to only be thinking about winning a championship. Not a TV show. This is out of control. I can’t believe Hakeem Olaujuwon got on a plane and flew to try to convince Dwight to play in Houston. Dwight should have gotten on a plane to visit him and ask to play in his city.

  • Dagger

    As if I needed something to dislike this guy any more . . .

  • KSupreme

    this is ridiculous….tell him how he’s gonna win a championship…not how you’re gonna love living here….shame on the lakers and the rockets…as if 110 milli or 90 milli isn’t enough to make someones stay happy. i’m not gonna judge dwight because we don’t really know for sure if it was one of his demands to have a tv show, but he better make this decision based on basketball and winning.

  • shockexchange

    The “synergy” of acting in movies and TV shows is how the Lakers hooked Shaq. Just look at how many Oscars Shaq has. Don’t fall the okie doke D12.

    Whatever happened to just being focused on the game of basketball? I get the whole FA frenzy but this is crazy.

    They bending over backwards for his silly azz smdh

  • Lexluther703

    Gotta be one of the most outrageous Hype-to-Production/Value ratios of all time. Everyone pulling out all the stops as if they’re signing LeBron or KD… this dude doesn’t deserve all this.

  • speedy

    Who would watch it?
    There are hardly any fans of him left after all.

  • jub al

    What are the chances GState will land him? Why bother?

  • underdog

    Pathetic.

  • spit hot fiyah

    Thé rockets should have offered him a Free trip to the Moon, and leave him there

  • RayJr

    lol nice. Top Dwightmare comment so far

  • Nathan Shane Long

    The only TV show Dwight Howard needs is the Maury Show

  • KB37

    I used to root for Dwight but if Lebron was looked at as a villain after the Decision Dwight has officially become a super villain lol

  • Caboose

    If Dwight wants fame: Houston or Golden State
    If Dwight wants infamy: Los Angeles
    If Dwight wants a ring: Houston or Golden State
    If Dwight wants to have complete control of a team: Dallas
    If Dwight cares most about where he lives: Atlanta or Los Angeles
    If Dwight wants money: Los Angeles
    If Dwight wants to be a primary scoring option: Atlanta or Dallas
    If Dwight wants a coach tailored for him: Houston
    If Dwight wants to be with friends: Atlanta

    We’ll see what Dwight values most in the next week…

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    would you stop perpetuating that Golden State is actually an option? It isn’t.

  • Caboose

    Because…? I know cap space is, well, tight, but it’s possible. That said, Dwight’s going to Houston.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Cap Space is non existent……..as in, there is none.
    .
    Would have to be a sign & trade…..
    .
    Would have to gut the entire roster to make salaries work, in a sign and trade with LA, where a third team would have to take on the bulk of the useless money because the Lakers have to get below $72 million in any sign and trade……
    .
    it isn’t impossible. but it’s impossibl
    .

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    and yeah, i put Houston at like 70% to get Dwight. LA at 16%, and Dallas at 14%. lol

  • Caboose

    I’d go 80% Houston, 8% LA, 8% Dallas, 3% GS, 1% Atlanta

  • shockexchange

    Whoever nicknamed Dwight “Rent-A-Center” is a genius … as the theme from “Jeopardy” plays ad infinitum …

  • iceman

    Dwight YOU ARE the Father!

  • playa

    Sooooooo embarassing, is Dwight the second coming of 50-25 Wilt or am i missing something???

  • roscoe

    As a true fan of Reality TV & Cartoons this is a great idea!

    I wonder what time slot dh12TV will get? I hope it comes on after TMZ.

  • alex80

    IT’s hard to understand why those great teams are fighting over a guy like this, He is not a Champion, He doesn’t play like a Champion(sometimes while ago), He has no heart or loyalty whatsoever, so why trying to waste time ,money and expectations for a Center? like this, and that is why ¨New NBA Stars ¨are Sheisse, I think we saw the best of him in Orlando Magic, He’s fading

  • jmm

    Fortunately disliking him is so much fun it’s like something to look forward to.

  • Chukaz

    Yeah because players are just dying to play for the Rockets. Morey didn’t spend the last 5 years trying to add a franchise player, he spent it turning down franchise player after franchise player because everybody wanted to go to houston, with it “rich” history of winning. I’m using the word “rich” extremely lightly. If your Dwight and you have a chance to ask someone who’s got no control over basketball decisions if you can play for his former team, which has like 2 titles in the last 40 years, you’ve gotta do it. If Dwight should be asking anybody who’s not part of a teams basketball operations if he can play in their city, it should be Kobe, or Magic, or Shaq, or Kareem, or James Worthy, or Wilt’s dead body, or Elgin Baylor, or The MOTHAF*CKING LOGO!

  • dwightsucks

    That’s Dwight all over. Work on adding at least one more post move to that stink running hook……. idiot! #dwightisntworththismuch

  • robb

    Nobody likes watching clowns on tv

  • Adam Sweeney

    And maybe Kobe, Metta, and Nash can convince Howard to play the young one in their version of “Golden Girls.” It was must-see TV last year, right?

  • AndyK415

    OMG

  • shutup

    But Shaq does have his SAG card…..

  • shockexchange

    True. He also got “outed” by Horry Jr – “Shaq did it too. I should have paid her off like Shaq does.” Had he stayed in Orlando he would have won 10 chips and still be married.

  • shutup

    So now only LA has loose vaginas? gtfoh. Infidelity happens across the world, even eskimos cheat.

  • shockexchange

    True. However, had he stayed in Orlando Horry Jr couldn’t have snitched on him.

  • shutup

    Like I said loose vaginas around the world, there are some loose vaginas with great jumpshots and stupid nicknames too, mamba out………
