Dwight Howard tricked by Lakers fan

Published Add your comment

Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard was left hanging by a LA Lakers fan who backed out of a high-five at the last second.

The 28-year-old, an eight-time NBA All-Star, was making his way out of the Staples Centre following his side's 134-108 victory on Wednesday night when he went to high-five members of the crowd as he walked back to the locker room.

However, one cheeky fan faked out, leaving Howard looking foolish.

Credit to the former Lakers star, though; he continued walking like nothing had happened - rather than reacting and making the situation ten times worse.
