Dwight Howard played with the Orlando Magic for eight seasons. He sat on the sideline in recent months after having a herniated disc in his spine surgically repaired and Sunday night he made his return to the court with a brand new team.
Howard put up 19 points against the Sacramento Kings Sunday night and although his new LA LAkers lost, and he was a little rusty; Howard still put up an impressive performance.
Dwight Howard experienced an extremely warm welcome by Los Angeles Lakers fans. You can hear the crowd begin to cheer extremely loud as soon as they call the #12 for Howard, if you listen most of the other players cheers begin following the name being announced.
The fans certainly seem on board and are supporting Howard, check out Dwight Howard‘s first basket as a Laker and listen to the crowd!
Howard said during an interview after the game that the warm welcome was an extremely humbling experience and that he actually teared up as a result.
