Philadelphia 76ers huge male Dwight Howard was included in a rather strange occurrence during the Sixers’ Saturday night bout versus the Detroit Pistons. Howard literally got his shorts ripped in a box out sequence, however was still whistled for a nasty, and for good procedure, was even handed a tech moments later.

Here’s a look at the play in concern which clearly did not enter Howard’s favor (h/t Bleacher Report on Twitter):.

You might clearly see in the replay that the opposing Pistons gamer was vigorously yanking on Howard’s shorts during the play, which resulted in the Philly center’s consistent getting ripped. However, it was still Howard who was called for a nasty, and he was later examined with a technical foul for grumbling.

We’re pretty sure that’s not how the previous Defensive Gamer of the Year winner envisioned his evening, particularly after he made history not too long ago by passing the fantastic Hakeem Olajuwon on the NBA’s all-time rebounding list.

After signing with the team in the offseason as a complimentary representative, Howard has been averaging 6.7 points and 8.2 rebounds in 17.8 minutes off the bench.

The Sixers entered into Saturday’s matchup following back-to-back wins against arch-rivals, the Boston Celtics. They get to take on against the Pistons again on Monday.
