Dwight Howard is one of the biggest names representing the Adidas basketball brand. At the 62nd All-Star Game in Houston, Howard will debut a special NBA All-Star edition of the "D Howard Light."
The signature shoe features a design based on speed, style and Houston's "history of aviation," according to a release sent out on behalf of Adidas. The design was also reportedly inspired by the atmosphere of NBA All-Star Weekend.
Howard and the Lakers (19-25) are trying to work their way back into the playoff hunt after solid wins over the Utah Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Despite playing with a shoulder injury and still recovering from offseason back surgery, Howard is averaging 16.5 points, 12 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game.
