Dwight Howard with his snakes

Former Lakers big man Dwight Howard mentions having more than a dozen snakes in his home. Given their huge guaranteed contracts, NBA players don’t exactly live modest lives. Even before they reach adulthood, some of them become billionaires. There are several instances of individuals losing their money on the most absurd of things. Snakes are one of the strangest and scariest pets that the three-time DPOY owns at home. In 2020, he was sued by two women, which increased the mystery around him.

Unfortunately, Howard is engaged in an odd legal dispute despite having made so much money. Armica Nabaa and Kamisha Shelman filed a lawsuit against the former DPOY for $50,000 plus additional damages. Moreover, he didn’t compensate them for taking care of his collection of exotic snakes. After they had been employed by Howard, the NBA player abruptly sacked them in January 2020. He apparently still owes them a significant sum of money for their services. In addition to additional costs and damages, the women are now requesting $50,000 in unpaid salaries.

Dwight Howard and his love for snakes is causing him trouble.

The Orlando Magic selected Dwight Howard with the first overall pick in the 2004 draft. Since then, he has had an unstable career that has lasted 18 seasons so far. Howard has averaged nearly 16 points, 12 rebounds, and two blocks per game throughout the course of his career. His accomplishments include a championship in the NBA, three DPOY trophies, eight NBA All-Star appearances, and six All-NBA selections. Over the course of his career, he has earned an astounding $245 million thanks to this incredible work history. This is why it surprises us that Howard didn’t pay the two women he recruited to fulfill an odd job.

Howard thinks his house’s reptile has a zen-like effect. The eight-time All-Star claims that because of the heat that people emit, snakes can comprehend what humans are saying. The basketball player was sued by Armica Nabaa and Kamisha Shelman for allegedly failing to reimburse them for their services. According to the lawsuit, Howard allegedly recruited Nabaa and Shelman to perform personal management services in December 2018. The women initially thought they would be in charge of Howard’s business concerns, but this also included looking after his collection of exotic snakes. According to the lawsuit, the athlete has several snakes, including the enormous constrictor Cleopatra, who weighs about 200 pounds.

Nabaa even went so far as to claim that by linking him with the Los Angeles Lakers, she was able to save his NBA career. She was thanked by Dwight Howard in a televised interview, which is said to have validated this. The Lakers big man presently has thirteen snakes, but he formerly owned nearly fifty. Howard asserts that the lovely creature is not creepy and that people are to blame for giving them a negative name.
