There’s apparently one die-hard celebrity basketball fan that hopes Dwight Howard ends up choosing the Houston Rockets whenever he does come to a decision for which team to join during the 2013-14 season–Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory.
For those of you unfamiliar with Parsons, he plays the hilarious character Sheldon Cooper on the hit CBS show and has received heavy praise for being one of the funniest characters on television. Just like every other basketball fan in Houston, Parsons hopes to see Howard choose the Rockets and after seeing numerous celebrity fans make their pitches to Howard about joining their favorite team, the actor thought he would give it a shot himself by uploading a video about why Dwight should come to Houston.
When taking into consideration that not many people even knew he was a big Rockets fan, Parsons deserves plenty of credit for the knowledge about his favorite team and the reasons behind why Howard is the missing piece for the Rockets. Parsons does make an excellent point about how every great championship team has that star center and when looking at the talent on Houston’s roster already–Howard could be just what this team needs to become one of the top contenders in the Western Conference next season.
It was reported this week that Howard was hoping to come up with a decision by Friday as far as which team he would join, but there still hasn’t been a decision as of early afternoon. Who knows–maybe Howard will come across this video by Parsons before making his decision and realize the Rockets are in fact his best fit to compete for a title.
