Even throughout all his bitterness towards NBA officials, it's important to remember something about Orlando Magic All-Star center Dwight Howard: he has an amazing sense of humor.
During the third quarter of a Monday night game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Howard threw down an absolutely vicious alley oop slam dunk over Sixers guard Jrue Holiday. Trailing a transition play with the Magic leading 56-54, Howard rose way up to snare a lofted pass from Magic guard Jameer Nelson, catching the ball in one motion and pounding it down on Holiday, who did his best to get out of the way.
The only thing better than the dunk was Howard's post-game comment about it, taken down by the Orlando Sentinel.
“Sometimes, like your momma says, when you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time bad things happen,” Howard opined.
“Really, I was just going to lay the ball up, and then Jrue jumped. I feel bad for his head. Let’s have a moment of silence for Jrue.”
Howard then lowered his head.Here's video of the dunk, courtesy of YouTube user NBA.
