Jan 11, 2014; Washington, DC, USA; Houston Rockets power forward Dwight Howard (12) blocks a shot by 10-year-old Washington Wizards fan Sandro Dussek of McLean, VA during a delay in play for a leak in the roof against the Wizards at Verizon Center. Mandatory Credit: Geoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsDwight Howard has grown from one of the most well-liked players in the NBA to one of the biggest pariahs.

In Orlando, he was one of the best young players in the league, extremely likable, and viewed as the best young big man in the league.

By the end of his time with the Magic, he was viewed as a malcontent, a coach-killer and a whiner.

He went to the Lakers, and it only got worse. Instead of harnessing his incredible natural abilities, he and the team were awful. Despite a team loaded with superstars, they looked awkward and out of place.

Now, he's in Houston, trying to get back to his more playful roots, but he's showing that he still just doesn't get it.

Check out this video of him playing 1-on-1 with a young fan during a condensation delay:



Dwight showed that he can dominate a little kid in basketball.

Congrats, Dwight.

You couldn't let the kid get up a shot without blocking it into the 4th row?

Come on, man.

If you think that's bad, you didn't hear the radio commentary.

Douche chills. Don't worry Pat, the basketball gods have something for Dwight that will make most people happy. To borrow from the soup Nazi-- No ring for you!
