    Got same Clark Kent briefcase on behalf of @DwightHoward that @DwainPrice got. DP kindly models all the gear here - http://t.co/d3JkqIh2gK


    The #Rockets also sent out a James Harden grooming kit to promote him for MVP. Sorry about the hair. http://t.co/dckfWSS4r6

    The #Rockets sent media members a Superman cape, a briefcase and a pair of glasses to vote for DHoward for MVP, etc http://t.co/G3KEvVvJSA


    I'm unable to embed right now, can someone please embed the pictures Dwain Price tweeted?

    Price's shirt? Or are you talking about what is in the briefcase? It's a cape.

    There was a time when Steve Francis wore his own cape to work.

    The Howard for MVP part is hilarious. I guess the props could be considered awesome.

    Would be awesome if the Lakers sent a media package with GLAD Trash Bags with pictures of whoever they deemed as their MVP this season.......

    Even though neither have a realistic shot at winning MVP, this will stroke Howard and Harden's egos so this is a good thing. Keep them happy and playing well. Also sends a message to potential free agents that we support our guys here.
