Anyone would be excited to run into an NBA superstar. However, it's a major letdown when you find out that you were fooled.

One girl was elated that she and her sisters supposedly met Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard:

That photo was accompanied by the following caption:

My sisters and I with NBA Superstar Dwight Howard!!! We really enjoyed our encounter with him despite not knowing his name until looking him up as he said to, LOL! He was really nice, super cool, HUMBLE, and had us laughing too! #DwightHoward #AlexisAlleyAlbany

The man in the photograph is tall, but that is obviously not Howard.

After she tagged the superstar in the comment section, Howard decided to let her know that she had been duped:

On the plus side, at least she can say Howard commented on her photo.
