Apparently, not everyone loves L.A.
Dwight Howard, the seven-time NBA All-Star center who left the Orlando Magic in 2012, is now leaving the Los Angeles Lakers and heading to the Houston Rockets.
The annoucement of the move, which didn't sit well with a lot of Lakers' fans worldwide, came last Friday. Howard is expected to sign a four-year, $88 million deal with the Rockets any day now.
But before the big man makes his decision official, he should know that Texas is a much different place than California.

Forget the nature-lovin', veggie wrap-eatin', movie-star egos of the Golden State. Texas is all about pick-up trucks, thick twangs and to-die-for barbecue.
Although I'm not a Texas native, I have traveled throughout the state and I'm a devoted fan of "King of the Hill". That qualifies me, right? Either way, I've decided to give a Howard a crash-course in what it means to be a true Texan.
