The Lakers were bounced from the 2013 NBA Playoffs in the first round, giving Howard plenty of free time. What better way to spend it than by challenging an Arizona housewife to a free-throw contest?
Los Angeles Times columnist T.J. Simers set up the challenge between Howard and his daughter Kelzer Nielson, who is a mother of three.
Even in a contest with no pressure, against a middle-aged housewife who probably hardly ever plays basketball, Howard stunk it up, losing to Nielson.
Nielson even got some trash talking in during the contest, telling Howard ”Kobe thinks you’re soft.”
According to Simers, Howard did eventually beat Nielson, but it took him nearly two hours to do so.
