Lakers repaint Beverly Hills Hotel facade with Dwight Howard's jersey (Photo)

The Los Angeles Lakers are stepping up their efforts to urge center Dwight Howard to stay with the team. Apparently they hope that painting the Beverly Hills Hotel facade with a replica of Howard's Lakers jersey will help convince him that staying with the team is the right move for him.

This all seems a little desperate on the part of the Lakers, and you have to wonder if Kobe Bryant is on board with this.

UPDATE:  Apparently this image was photoshopped.  Still, having the image posted on the Lakers Twitter feed smells of the desperation you might expect from a lower tier NBA team, not from one of the league's top franchises.
