Dwight Howard has been dunking on people for years. He dunked his way to being the first pick in the NBA Draft, he dunked his way to the NBA Finals, he dunked himself in and out of favor with Kobe Bryant, and is currently showing off his rim shattering ability as the anchor of an underachieving Houston Rockets team. Last night against the Knicks, they didn’t look anything like underachievers however, and Knicks upstart rookie Kristaps Porzingis got a pretty stern, viral reminder of that.
In the fourth quarter of a very close game, Rockets guard Marcus Thornton hit a rolling Dwight Howard with a pretty lob, and Howard proceeded to drop the hammer on Porzingis, who was–admirably, we should add–trying his hardest to prevent the inevitable. Howard’s teammate’s face tells you all you need to know, really.
