While he’s one of the best-known basketball players on the planet representing the Houston Rockets, Dwight Howard decided to change sports and join another team last week.

Responding to a challenge posted on Twitter by Cody O’Bryen, Howard visited West Beach in Santa Barbara on Thursday to join the FindtheBest.com team, Notorious FTB, in its weekly WAKA League kickball game.

A video on YouTube.com shows Howard in the team huddle offering a motivational speech before the game starts [WATCH HERE].

Once the hour-long kickball contest was underway, Howard manned the pitcher’s position and played the entire game.

“A lifelong Laker fan, I admittedly held a grudge against Dwight until last Thursday. He won me over when I noticed a giant walking through the sand towards our team,” O’Bryen said. “It took me a second to digest what was happening, but I threw him a jersey and treated him like any other player for the next hour and a half. Planning on tweeting at every Victoria Secret model and seeing what happens next…”

Howard took a group photo after playing in the hour-long kickball game at Santa Barbara's West Beach.

O’Bryen is an employee of FindtheBest.com, a local web-search startup company based in Summerland that sponsors the kickball team. The WAKA kickball league is popular in Santa Barbara for young adults with 20 teams competing in its summer season.

Howard, in Santa Barbara to train at the Peak Performance Project facility, made other cameos in Santa Barbara in recent days including more fitness training at Jenny Schatzle’s gym as captured by KEYT news.
