Dwight Howard’s savage ‘Batman’ joke from Lakers bench to Nikola Jokic
Jokic’s nickname, of course, is the Joker.
"Batman coming for you, the Joker" – Dwight Howard to Nikola Jokic from the Laker bench

Dwight Howard has been trolling Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets all series. The Lakers veteran is basically trying to get in Jokic’s head from the bench and on the court when he subs in.
Many thought Howard’s NBA career was over. However, the Lakers signed the former superstar in the summer of 2019 after DeMarcus Cousins tore his ACL.
Howard appeared in 69 games for Los Angeles during the regular season. He averaged 7.5 points and 7.3 rebounds while shooting 72.9 percent from the field.
While he’s no longer a star in the NBA, it’s been fun to see Howard play for a contender again after bouncing around from team to team after his prime days with the Orlando Magic ended.
It would be quite the story if Howard wins his first championship with the Lakers, especially when you consider how disastrous his first stint in Los Angeles was during the 2012-13 season.
