Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is hoping to incorporate a former teammate into his quest for a second NBA Slam Dunk contest title.
Following the Lakers’ 100-92 win over the New York Knicks on Wednesday, Howard requested the fans’ help to convince Kobe Bryant to join him for next month’s event.
“I’m trying to get Kobe,” he said, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “So if I can get all the Laker fans to lobby to get Kobe to help me in the dunk contest, that’d be really good. That’d be awesome.”
