What is going on with Dwight Howard’s new hair? Twitter goes in on 76ers’ center’s haircut after win in Game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks.

Dwight Howard’s new hair

Dwight Howard is coming off a stellar Championship year with the Lakers, and looking to go again with the 76ers.

The three-time Defensive Player of the Year captured his elusive first ring in the Orlando Bubble last year with LeBron and co.

Howard came off the bench and added some much needed defensive prowess and rebounding when the Lakers needed it most.

Dwight has fulfilled a similar role in Philly, providing solid backup to MVP runner-up Joel Embiid throughout the season.

However, it’s Dwight new hair, rather than his play, that people are focusing on over Games 1 and 2 against the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference semis.

Twitter reacts to Dwight Howard’s new hair

Dwight Howard’s new haircut is unusual to say the least.

People on social media were equally baffled by his new look, and took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it.

Hilariously, some compared it to Cynthia from Rugrats.

Check it out.

Dwight Howard spoke about Trae Young ahead of Game 2

Howard scored 6 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 11 minutes in the 76ers 118-102 victory over the Hawks in Game 2.

Before the game, the veteran center spoke about Hawks’ point guard Trae Young. Trae had been the pantomime villain in Atlanta’s first round series against the Knicks, and Dwight warned him about playing that same role in Philly.

“He don’t want no smoke with these ones,” Howard said.

“Not no Philly fans! We for real about our team over here. We for real. Nah, I love it. I think the going back-and-forth with the fans, having a good time, it’s entertainment. This is why the fans are back. They want to see a good show. Him playing, him going at the crowd, but now we got the Philly crowd. It’s gonna be great. I’m looking forward to it.”
