Whoops, Dwight Howard, you just mocked LeBron James on national television right before a game against LeBron James. That’s a sure-fire way to get put on the enemies list and get your team lit up to the tune of 51 points.
Want proof? How about this little video of LeBron’s perfect start.
That’s 11-11, mostly on Hedo Turkoglu, but also a little bit on Earl Clark, Quentin Richardson, Jason Richardson and — look at that — Dwight Howard. The only Magic LeBron didn’t score on was David Blaine’s stupid “do something for a long time” tricks.
And that’s just the first quarter and a quarter. You know, immediately after Dwight’s jokey-jokes. Maybe next time, Dwight, don’t rile him up right before the game’s about to start. Just a suggestion.
