Dwight Howard Loses Halfcourt Trick Shot Contest To Rockets Mascot

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We established just yesterday that if you’re looking for someone to hit a shot from halfcourt, your best bet may be to go to Oklahoma City and randomly pull someone out of the stands. Because for whatever reason, people at Oklahoma City Thunder games seem to be incredibly good at halfcourt shots, at least when there’s some cash on the line.

Barring a trip to OKC, however, your best option when it comes to finding a halfcourt chucker might be using an NBA mascot. Particularly if you’re taking the shot backward, over your head. Check out the vid below, where Houston’s Dwight Howard tries to take on Rockets’ mascot Clutch in an impromptu trick shot contest …

    He ill eventually lose his championship this season if he will not play with the king “LeBron”. We will trade some player in Center position. Joel Anthony and Jarvis Varnado plus future 1st round pick!

    funny he wants to do trick shots but can’t shoot a decent free throw

  4. ddirk says:

    well obviously the trick shot was more close than some of his free throws^^

    I say put the mascot outfit on Howard and put that man on the floor.

    Is there anything he doesn’t lose?
