Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard is one of the most polarizing figures in sports.  On one hand, he's a fun-loving goofball who seems like he should be one of the most popular players in the NBA.  On the other hand, he's an indecisive monster who has left a trail of carnage in both Orlando and Los Angeles.  There's not a lot of middle ground.

Howard showed that first side in a recent visit to Sesame Street, where he talked strategery… wait, I've been told it's acutally spelled strategy… with Elmo.  He looks more at home here in this vignette for kids then he does at the free throw line.  Come to think of it, wouldn't it have been better for everyone involved if Elmo helped Dwight Howard with his free throw shooting instead of a strategy session?
