Dwight Howard Trolls Magic Fans, and Their Mamas, in Return to Orlando

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterMarch 13, 2013

Dwight Howard returned to Orlando on Tuesday to give Magic fans a bunch of noogies—and he laughed maniacally while doing it. 

After spending most of the season standing around and watching Kobe Bryant play basketball, the Lakers big man finally had the huge game Laker Nation has been waiting for.

For some odd reason, it took a trip to his old stomping grounds to wake him up. The night included the Lakers beating Howard's old team and moving into sole possession of the eighth and final playoff spot out West.

The game also featured Howard scoring 39 points, 16 rebounds and trolling all of the fans in attendance. 

First, here is Howard getting announced to a chorus of boos. Rather than take the negativity to heart, he pleasantly basks in it.

By the second quarter, Howard was starting to feel good and probably realized the crowd wasn't going to literally run him out of the arena. 

So, he decided to have some fun—something he last did about two years ago.

Howard gets a pass from Steve Nash and turns it into a thunderous throwdown. If seeing their former star dunk on them wasn't enough, Orlando fans had to endure the big man blowing a kiss at them. 

The troll sesh didn't end there. 

In the third quarter, Howard heard a fan talking trash. Rather than let the Magic supporter have his fun, Howard talks some smack right back. 

Howard is definitely saying something about the fan's mom, offering, "Your mama hate me too? She liked me last night."

It's hard enough being an Orlando Magic fan considering the team has the second-worst record in the NBA, but Howard made it extra difficult on Tuesday night.
