Welcome back to Twitter, Dwight Howard.
After an absence of 127 days, Howard posted his first Tweet since April 20 on Saturday, posting via Photobucket through his Android with a photo showing a view of the Los Angeles skyline in the far distance.
That from the new crib, Dwight? The one you reportedly wrote a $20 million check for after getting traded to the Lakers?
Well, Dwight, now that your Twitter absence is over, I have some advice (besides my free throw advice, which you already know about) that’ll help you make some easy money — the kind Mickael Pietrus make from you three years ago when he bet you and Jameer and Q-Rich all that money that he wouldn’t go the whole season without cutting his hair.
Pietrus told me during the NBA Finals against the Lakers it was the easiest money he ever made. (For the curious, it was mid five-figures).
So here is what you do …
Make a wager with Metta World Peace, who is always promising to stay off Twitter for a while only to come back a few hours later with another string.
Challenge him to stay off Twitter, posting nothing for as long as you did – 127 days.
As Pietrus would say: “Easy money.”
