Dwight Howard's children's album about to hits stores. Whoomp There It Is.


howard_album.jpgYou know how you’ve always wanted to explain to your young son or daughter the joy of hearing “Whoomp There It Is” through the arena sound system during the timeout of an NBA game?

No? Then what about “Let’s Get It Started?” “U Can’t Touch This?”

Now Dwight Howard has come to your rescue. He has a new album hitting stores next month called Shoot for the Stars and… well, here is the official explanation:

The album features him singing kid-friendly versions of arena staples. Helping Howard out are kids from the NBA Cares Read to Achieve program. Dwight, the NBA and the Orlando Magic will be helping promote the release all season long, particularly when Dwight is playing at home in Orlando (over 18,000 fans a night) and on the road.

Howard and friends will butcher all your favorites like “Shout” and “Day-O.”

The good news, some of the profits go to benefit the BETA Center, the Orland organization whose mission is to provide children and parents with the knowledge and support needed for strong and healthy families.

Miami is going to be a lot of fun to watch this season (if they can stay healthy).

They’ve got athletic, active players who want to run, who move off the ball, and they have good passers. For example, watch Chris Bosh go between the legs to Dwyane Wade in the Heat’s preseason game Sunday.

Bosh had 14 points, and Wade had a dozen, but Charlotte won the exhibition.

The Clippers went north of the border to take on the Raptors in an exhibition game, but it was on the West Coast of Canada in one of the world’s prettiest cities — Vancouver. The two played at the Rogers Arena.

Where, they may want to upgrade the shot clocks behind the backboards. Watch over the shoulder of the Clippers announcers as Griffin dunks in warmups.

Notice that DeAndre Jordan loves this.

Nice to see Griffin dunking like his old self again. If you want another view, the NBA retweeted this.
