Video: Dwight Howard rejected by rim trying to dunk on Clippers

Dwight Howard was playing the Clippers, not the Lakers, on Monday night, but the freshly signed Houston Rockets center suffered an embarrassing return to Los Angeles nonetheless.

Not only did he commit three fouls in the first quarter, but he also completely failed on a dunk attempt.

Driving in against DeAndre Jordan, it looks like Howard was about to do what he is being paid millions to do: give the folks in Hollywood a thunderous dunk to chew on after reigning the “boos” down on him.

Instead, he whiffed badly. The laughs and boos continued afterwards.
