VIDEO: Dwight Howard Looks Like a Monster in Clip From Venice Beach and Lakers Fans Should Be Pumped

The Los Angeles Lakers are hoping Dwight Howard can solve their center problems after DeMarcus Cousins went down with a torn ACL, and this video should give them hope. The former Laker and three-time Defensive Player of the Year showed up at Venice Beach and put on a show for fans on hand.

Howard looks like he's in the best shape of his life as he attempts to resurrect a likely Hall-of-Fame career. He can be seen gliding toward the rim with flashbacks of his former self.

The eight-time All-NBA center appeared in nine games for the Washington Wizards last year before a lower body injury cost him his season.

Ever since departing Houston, Howard has been unable to stick on a team. He's bounced from Atlanta to Charlotte and then Washington in his last three seasons.

The 33-year-old center will look to contribute to a LeBron James-led Lakers team that has its sights set on the playoffs. With the addition of Anthony Davis, Howard won't be expected to contribute in a major way. If he can provide solid defense and rebounding on a nightly basis, the Lakers could be in business this season.

If he can't, it could very well be his last opportunity in the NBA. If anything, this video is a good indication of where Howard's head is at this offseason.
