Over the weekend, DWIGHT HOWARD updated both his Twitter and Facebook accounts with this feature portrait that originally ran in the L.A. Times, ushering in his era with Lakers…uhh, from a social standpoint.
The portrait depicts Howard as the next great big man in the pantheon of legendary Laker centers, joining the fraternity of bigs George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal.
Howard hasn’t tweeted since April 20, clearly maintaining a low profile amid all the trade talk innuendo that preceded his blockbuster trade to the Lakers.
I’m feeling the portrait but the only way it becomes a masterpiece is if Dwight achieves what those other great Laker centers achieved: The NBA title.
As his Twitter page states, Howard will certainly be trying to make his newfound freedom ring.
