Dwight Howard’s Off-Season: Cock Fighting and Curling in ‘Canada and Montreal’

"I’m not worried about the lockout," Howard said. "I have two jobs in place. One, I’ve been training a couple of chickens in my backyard. I have a miniature treadmill. I have some steroids for the chickens, and we’re going to do cockfights. So I might do that. The other one is I’ve been also training for curling. So I’ll be in Canada and Montreal with the curling team up there. So, yeah, I can’t wait."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Dwight Howard has a plan if the players get locked out.

The Orlando Magic’s star wants to train chickens for cock fights and join curling teams in Canada and Montreal (for future reference, Montreal is in Canada).

It’s hard to knock a sense of humour. It’s harder to knock a star who cares -Howard made these comments at a fundraiser for his D12 Foundation.

Still, lockout or not, Howard’s main priority should be improving his somewhat raw offensive game.

After all, the Magic regressed in 2011. And he has already informed management that he’s opting-out of his contract next summer and becoming a free agent.

Howard must have the best year of his career in 2012. That, and nothing else, should be the plan. Even if there is a lockout.
