"There's gonna be some memes."
Dwyane Wade isn't the only NBA All-Star who is returning to his hometown to play ball next season. Dwight Howard signed on with his hometown Atlanta Hawks on a 3-year $70.5 million deal and today he held his first press conference as a member of the squad.
"If you want to get back to the top you got to get back to your roots," Dwight said during his introductory Hawks presser in which he stressed the fact that he's a new man ready for a new beginning.
And when it came time to address his loved ones, that's when the waterworks came. Even Kent Bazemore was up there crying. He knows ya'll are going to clown on him but it's all good because he's got $70.5 million waiting for him.
