This just in.

Word on the street is that Dwight Howard is enjoying his summer vacation in the city pursuing him the hardest.

Is this a coincidence?

As tweeted Tuesday by Marc J. Spears of Y! Sports:

Lakers pushing hard to land Magic center Dwight Howard & meeting with Magic today,sources tell Y! LAL wants DH contract extension commitment

And, this was just tweeted by Eric Pincus of HoopsWorld:

Buzz out of Los Angeles is that Dwight Howard is taking in a Dodger game

— Eric Pincus (@EricPincus) July 18, 2012

Beto Duran of ESPN Radio Los Angeles spotted something intriguing as well via Twitter:

DH was wearing a Dodgers and when he got to car one of his handlers saw fans were taking pics and snatched hat off DH head

This was also tweeted by a local Los Angeles Lakers fan early last week.

Do we really need someone to tell us that two plus two equals four?

Dwight Howard, in the midst of heavy trade speculation involving the Lakers, is vacationing in the city that he once publicly announced he would not play for.

Do you think he chose L.A. over Hawaii, Cancun or the Caribbean? Or, is he giving himself a preview of what his future life will look like very soon?

If I had to place a wager, I would bet my money on the latter.

The Lakers are doing all they can to bring Dwight to Los Angeles, and he is using his time to grow accustomed to his future city.

Two plus two equals four, two times two equals four and four plus four divided by two equals four. 

Dwight Howard in Los Angeles, plus Dwight Howard wearing Lakers gear, plus Dwight Howard watching a Dodgers game equals Dwight Howard will be a Laker.
