Lakers’ Dwight Howard channels Stephen Curry in latest workout clip
Dwight Howard’s latest workout clip should get Los Angeles Lakers fans hyped. The 35-year-old veteran recently shared a clip of a practice session wherein he looked like the second coming of Stephen Curry.
Here’s the video from Howard’s Instagram account showcasing his much-improved acumen from distance:

Dwight Howard was cooking from deep. I mean, he drained four straight treys. Okay, maybe the Steph Curry reference was a bit too much, but you get the point.
Last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, Howard knocked down a career-high five triples throughout the entire year. This was on a career-high 25 attempts. It looks like Howard is working on his long game, and it does seem as though his hard work is paying off. We just don’t know how many shots he missed outside of the clip he posted on Instagram.
Be that as it may, the Lakers won’t need too many three-pointers from Howard this coming season. The energy he brings to the floor is perhaps his most valuable asset, and so long as he is able to provide quality minutes for LA off the bench, then he should be fine.
