Dwight Howard hears chants of “Kobe” at Rockets/Pacers game in Philippines

Dwight Howard

Earlier today, the Houston Rockets scored a victory over the Indiana Pacers at a preseason game played at the Mall of Asia arena in the Philippines.

During the game, Dwight Howard (who defected from the Lakers in the offseason) heard some boos along with some chants of the name of a former teammate:

There were also scattered chants of “Kobe! Kobe!” in reference to Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, with whom Howard had a clash of personality during his one season stint in Los Angeles.

However, things weren’t all boos and negative chants during the game:

It wasn’t all bad for Howard, however, as the crowd gave him a big cheer in the third quarter after he made a free throw.
