Dwight Howard declares Rockets ‘Swag Champs’


David J. Phillip

The Houston Rockets are off to a hot 5-0 start, and they are feeling pretty good about themselves.

Just before tipoff of their 108-91 win over the Heat Tuesday night. Dwight Howard led the team in a little pregame huddle and cheer. (Howard always seems to feel pretty good about himself, no?)

To get the team pumped, the Houston big man decided to give the Rockets the title of "Swag Champs."

Huh? Just watch it.

We the swag champs, right? We're gonna come out & play with swag right? Swag champs on 3.

What does one have to do to become a swag champ? Is it just something you are born with? Or something you earn?
