Look away, Lakers fans! Dwight Howard looked fit, healthy and aggressive in his Houston Rockets debut, scoring 17 points and pulling down a career-high 26 rebounds. The Rockets took care of the Charlotte Bobcats 96-83. Per Yahoo! Sports: “When I stood there and looked around, I thought to myself, ‘I’ve got an amazing opportunity here, and I’m not going to let it go to waste,’ Howard said. ‘It hit me there: This is what I chose. This is what I decided to do.’ He smiled a knowing smile, nodded and repeated himself. ‘I’m not going to let it go to waste,’ Howard said … ‘I wanted to get 30 rebounds,’ Howard said. ‘I was upset I didn’t do it.'”
