Dwight Howard trains for space

By Lang Whitaker, NBA.com

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Houston, we have a problem.

OK, not really. But that sentence should remind us that besides hosting the Houston Rockets, the city of Houston is the home of the Johnson Space Center, which NASA uses for spaceflight training and mission control. With some time off yesterday, Rockets center Dwight Howard paid a visit to NASA HQ to undergo some astronaut training and meet actual astronauts…

    Training in space with Marvin the Martians won’t gives you any ring. You need to train hard and play with the “king” LeBron. We will trade improving top 10 center of all time Greg Oden to Houston so that Asik should have a backup center

      D.Howard don’t need to play with Lebron to win a ring Besides that, It’s pretty cool that D Howard went to NASA to learn and meet people.It’s normal for people to take a little time out from work, playing for the NBA isn’t an easy job and you’re right, it takes training and dedications to win a championship. Houston Rockets are doing a great job and a great team, D. Howard getting rid of a little stress isn’t going to hurt the team, an unhealthy D.Howard will ruin the team chance to the finals.

      DO you really think houston rockets will accept a trade of oden in exchange for howard to the heat. bet your one of those bandwagon fans that know nothing about the game of basketball

    Posting comments about trading players on nba.com won’t give Heat any new rings. Heat need to fire Pat Riley and hire lbj (future HOF GM) so he can bring Howard to Miami for improving top 10 center of all time Greg Oden.
