If you haven’t seen the movie “Taken” then this image probably won’t be as funny to you as it should be. Don’t worry though, the Interwebz has been going nuts since the Los Angeles Lakers announced the acquisition of four-time All-Star and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard. There’s something online for everyone.
Here’s a selection of Twitter fun…
BREAKING: Dwight Howard requests trade back to Orlando, misses home.

Dwight Howard already lookin to break Shaq’s Laker records, like most #turrible free throw shooting percentage in team history.

So where are the rest of the Lakers supposed to sit while Steve Nash and Dwight Howard are laying on the floor with their bad backs?

The Lakers now have Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. There haven’t been this many Broke Backs together since Jake jumped on Heath’s mountain.

As for imagery, Got ‘Em Coach has you covered.
And my personal favourite…
As I say, there’s something online for everyone as the Lakers get their man. We’re all in for some exciting times ahead for the upcoming NBA season, with a number of subplots.
Will the Lakers propel Kobe Bryant to his sixth championship? Will Lakers fans rejoice in a new dynasty? Is the Heat supposed dynasty over before it began?
Or finally and most intriguingly, will the Lakers implode under the weight of expectation? No matter what happens, it’s certainly another reason to watch the upcoming NBA season.
