Prior to last night's 129-103 win over the Sacramento Kings, Dwight Howard of the Houston Rockets was having some fun on the court with a local kid...he got taught a lesson.

Howard loves doing stuff like this. Earlier this season we saw him embarrassing a little kid during a rain delay in Washington D.C.

Last night in Sacramento (the video quality is a bit worse) Howard performed his usual routine, but the little dude got the win in the end. Much to the delight of the crowd.

Most basketball fans don't like Dwight Howard. I am in the minority when I say that I love seeing players who don't take themselves too seriously. I don't care about his on-court limitations because I am not a fan of the Magic, Lakers, or Rockets...I just like to see multi-million dollar athletes having some fun. He may be a bit of a phony, but at least he always has a smile on his face. 

I like LeBron James too...watcha gonna do about it?
