For the first time since April when he left Orlando to prep for his back surgery in Los Angeles,Dwight Howard returned to his home in the city of Orlando.Despite what transpired before his trade to the Lakers, Howard says that he still a nothing but love for the fans and the city that drafted to play him 8 years ago.

During the shoot around a larger than usual amount of media was there to talk about that back and forth words between former teammates Howard and Nelson but Dwight said he looked forward to the game later on that night and was looking forward to taking care of business and keeping the winning streak alive. Of course as he was introduced the Amway Center rang out with boo’s but that didn’t rattle the center as he came out dominating down in the paint which eventually led to the “Hack-aDwight” fouls to sending Howard to the free throw line to shoot 39 times.Howard finished the game with 39 pts,16 rebounds and three blocks as the Lakers won 106-97
