LeBron James, Dwight Howard to Coach at ASW

Dwight Howard is headed to the NBA All-Star Weekend as the defending slam-dunk champion and likely starting center for the Eastern Conference.

And as a coach.

Coach Howard?

Howard told the Sentinel on Sunday that he and LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers have been asked to "coach" in the rookie-sophomore exhibition game in some fashion. The top rookies and second-year players are chosen to play in the exhibition that will be held Friday night of All-Star Weekend.

"That should be cool, a lot of fun," Howard said.
