Los Angeles Lakers: The Best Of #DwightHowardIsMoreUselessThan Tweets


Making fun of Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard seems like the cool, hip thing to do these days.

After putting up a lousy six points on 1 for 7 shooting during the Lakers 122-105 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday night, a hashtag began trending on popular social media outlet Twitter, simply called #DwightHowardIsMoreUselessThan.

It’s clearly meant to be mean-spirited towards Howard, but several tweeters were actually extremely creative with the hashtag, coming up with some very humorous and memorable one-liners.

Here is a look at some of the very best #DwightHowardIsMoreUselessThan tweets.

Of course, there were those select Lakers fans out there who defended Howard from the onslaught of hateful tweets…..

Personally, I got a kick out of a majority of these tweets. It’s all in good fun, and should be taken with a grain of salt. Hashtags like this appear on Twitter every single day.

It’s not meant to be a form of bullying. Dwight Howard is a professional athlete who deals with far worse scrutiny on a daily basis than something as inconsequential as this.

Just enjoy it for what it is, have a laugh and relax a bit. It may even put a smile on your face.

It certainly did for me.
