Apparently, the idea of being under Kobe Bryant's tutelage and not literally being under him wasn't enough to keep Dwight Howard in Los Angeles. USA Today's sources revealed that Howard was has reached an agreement with the Houston Rockets.
Of course, the acquisition has some fans believing that the Rockets are one of the teams to beat in the Western Conference. Because we all know getting talent like Howard always screams "dominance." Except it doesn't.
Fans still took to Twitter to express their thoughts on Howard's signing. Delirious or hopeful? You be the judge:
