If you’re keeping track at home, Dwight Howard is sometimes susceptible to falling for pump fakes but apparently always susceptible to falling for team introduction fakes. Just a classic new guy zinger right here.

But if you’re worried that being fooled by some dastardly teammates is indicative of the fact that six months on the shelf has sapped Dwight Howard of all of his on court smarts, don’t be. Because he followed up this silly bit of trickery with about 60 alley-oops, including one for his very first points as a Laker. Scary times for the rest of the league.
