When the Lakers signed Dwight Howard, they were well aware of the risk. The back injury he sustained over last season, caused worries through out the Lakers camp. That was until, they discovered a foreign treatment.
From Laker Nation:
“Gagnam style has helped me strengthen my core and lower back. I’ve got a great PT program, but this dance has taken me to the next level,” said Howard.
Weeks later, Howard was on the court at training camp, ferociously dunking on roster hopeful Robert Sacre. Coach Mike Brown and Kobe Bryant have been amazed by Howard’s progress, comparing him to Bill Russell and noticing no signs of injury.In a team with an aging roster, and a history of injuries, this new sensation in the medical world will bring back the youth in the veterans. Steve Nash, you can finally forget about your Phoenix Training Staff. If you feel any pain or aches, just blast Gangnam Style and pretend you are riding a horse galloping on a really bump road.
One certain teammate however, is still not bought by it.
Asked why Bryant didn’t join Howard in the Gangnam Sytle dance during a break in action at the Lakers-Trailblazers preseason game, he sternly replied “I don’t ride horseys.”As imagined Kobe Bryant refuses to believe in some silly Korean Pop dance would fix his ailing knees. But this is the Mamba we are talking about here, he would do anything to pro-long his career. May I remind you he went under the German Orthokine procedure as the first NBA prototype. I bet the man is in his castle of solitude, listening to PSY's melodic voice with his headphone on, (just so no one ever knows about it) while swinging an imaginary lasso.
