Dwight Howard will trade in his Lakers jersey for a Rockets jersey.

At 25.9 points per game, James Harden was fifth in scoring last season in the NBA, less than 3 points shy of Carmelo Anthony’s league-leading mark, while soon-to-be teammate Dwight Howard ripped down an 12.4 rebounds, tops in the league.

There is a possibility Houston could be the 12th team in NBA history with the leading scorer and rebounder.


The other 11:

2000-01 PHI Allen Iverson 31.1 ppg, Dikembe Mutombo (traded to PHI from ATL), 13.5 rpg
