Staples Center shows support for Dwight Howard

The Lakers want Dwight Howard to stay — and so does the Staples Center.

On the day Doc Rivers was introduced as coach of the crosstown-rival Clippers, a large banner appeared on the outside of the Staples Center with a message of support for Howard.

There is also a similar billboard posted on Hollywood Blvd.

Whether or not Howard stays is anyone’s guess and will continue to be a hot topic as free agency opens on July 1.
