For a 6’10”, 250 pound giant… Dwight Howard seems to have the credibility of a child.
Reading a recent interview with him, his first quote is a contradiction. “I’ve always wanted to play in Atlanta and represent my hometown team,” he says at the beginning.

As a die hard ‘Stros fan, I couldn’t help but think of the similarities in these two (well, four). In this article, I’ll just stick with them – but Astros fans are overflowing with joy at the thought of these two PLUS ALTUVE AND CORREA!
