In a recent sit-down interview with Shams Charania of Stadium, the now-Los Angeles Lakers big man Dwight Howard discussed lots of topics, including similarities between him and his teammate on Team USA’s 2008 gold medal team, LeBron James:

“We got the same type personality. We love to have fun. We love to be around people. But we work hard, and I’m just happy to have somebody on my team that is the same exact way as me,” Howard said, per ClutchPoints.

Howard missed most part of the 2018-19 season owing to injuries, averaging 12.8 points along with 9.2 rebounds per game. James, meanwhile, averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 boards and 8.3 assists per contest.
