Dwight Howard has never been one to shy away from the spotlight. With Shaq retiring, there is no doubt that Howard is putting himself into a position to be the most marketable big man in the NBA. Due to his sponsorship deal with Adidas, Howard had the opportunity to participate in a six city tour of Europe. While there, Howard met up with another group of famous clients signed to the Adidas brand, the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team.
The AB's took advantage of the situation, and taught the big 7-footer the moves to the teams Haka, a pre-game chant that the All Blacks use to honor their heritage and scare opponents. While it's obvious Howard struggled a little bit with the moves, one thing is for sure, he had a better grasp of what was going on, than Denzel Washington had, when he was put into the same position back in the fall.
