“Superman” teases enthusiastic fan

Dwight Howard breaks one fan’s heart.

The Atlanta Hawk they call “Superman” was ejected after hanging on to the basketball rim too long against the Celtics Monday, February 27 in Boston. After receiving his second technical for the act Howard headed out of the arena. On his way out an excited Celtic fan was jumping to get Howard’s jersey.

After taking his jersey off Howard fakes the woman who badly wanted his jersey and gives it to another fan, who happens to be a white male.

Most fans pay their hard earned money to get tickets to see players on game day. Part of that money is responsible for the guaranteed $23 million Howard will make by the seasons end. 

What goes around comes around and that was an unclassy move by a “has been” fan favorite.
