Rockets' Howard hosts camp, gives back to area children
Rockets center Dwight Howard was able to be a kid again Saturday at his Dwight Howard Pro Camp. The Rockets star enjoyed giving kids a chance to experience things he couldn't at their age.
"I didn't have these opportunities growing up, to go to a specific player's camp," he said. "I enjoy this as much as the kids do and I really want them to learn."
Howard had fun with the campers, saying that his main goal is making sure everyone leaves happy.
"Sometimes they don't have a lot to smile for," Howard said. "So just to put a smile on their faces and making sure they have a good time out here is what it's all about."
At the conclusion of camp, Howard will shift his focus to the 2014 season. With the departures of small forward Chandler Parsons, guard Jeremy Lin and center Omer Asik, the Rockets could look drastically different when the season begins.
"We developed a bond from the season and in the playoffs, you know, it just got stronger," he said. "So to see those guys go, it was real sad."
Howard believes the Rockets can compete for a championship as they've added forward Trevor Ariza and veteran guard Jason Terry among other acquisitions.
"We've got some really great guys and just looking forward to having a great year," Howard said.
