Dwight Howard to Appear on the Cover of SLAM

With three preseason games in the books for the Los Angeles Lakers, Dwight Howard has yet to make his debut in purple and gold with no timetable officially set for his return to the floor.

Even though Howard is not quite at 100 percent yet, the three-time Defensive Player of the Year is already making a lot of noise in Los Angeles with an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and interviews with the media after practices with his new team.

Along with Howard letting his presence be known in Los Angeles, the superstar center will be gracing the cover of next week’s issue of SLAM magazine in a Lakers uniform according to SlamOnline.com:

“Though it won’t appear on newsstands until late next week, SLAM 163 has us too hyped to hold back any longer. So allow us to introduce: A diesel Dwight Howard on the cover, as a gold-and-purple wearing member of the Los Angeles Lakers. We never thought we’d see this happen, and neither did you. But it did, and it’s dope—as is the interview with Dwight and the rest of the issue.”

This is potentially the first of many appearances on the cover for SLAM by the latest superstar addition to the Lakers. If Howard is a success in Los Angeles, there’s no doubt that he’ll be on the cover this popular basketball magazine and the topic of many articles in the future.

As the cover suggests, there’s also a piece on the recently re-signed Jordan Hill in next week’s issue. Hill is currently recovering from an injury to his back and probably won’t return to the floor until opening night for the Lakers on Oct. 30.
