LOS ANGELES - Many of the Laker fans are very upset at the fact that Dwight Howard has decided to leave the bright lights of Tinsel Town for the space age city of Houston.
Houston is home to NASA, while LaLaLand is home to Paris Hilton, earthquakes, and the Kardashian XY's (females).
Dwight Howard says he's as happy as a woodpecker in a Popsicle stick factory to become a member of the Houston Rockets.
He spoke with Hercules Confetti of Sporting Chance Magazine at a local Gunfight At The OK Corral Steakhouse.
Confetti asked him what exactly made him reject the offer that the Lakers had made. He grinned and said the fact that he would have to play alongside of Kobe Bryant.
Howard went on to say that ever since his elementary basketball playing days he has never known a player who has hogged the ball more than Kobe.
He said that he wonders if Bryant sleeps with a basketball in his bed.
