NBA's Howard posts Tebowing pic, then advises Broncos QB

We can add Dwight Howard to the growing number of Americans swept up by the Tebowing craze.

On Monday night, Howard tweeted a photo of him and some guy who appears to be Orlando Magic teammate Jameer Nelson doing Tim Tebow's praying/celebration ritual. And it looks like it's at a sports bar.

Howard is kind of on the late train (Tebowing is so two weeks ago), but that's cool. Howard followed up his photo with a separate tweet offering the Broncos quarterback some words of encouragement.

"@TimTebow keep up the good work. Despite all the haters u work hard u got heart and u got Jesus. U can't lose," Howard posted.

Tebow appreciated the message, then did his best to recruit Howard and Miami Heat star LeBron James, who repeatedly has flirted with idea of trying the NFL, to Denver.

"And btw @DwightHoward if the lockout continues, you & @KingJames need to come get fitted for your Broncos uni's!," Tebow tweeted.

Maybe that's what it would take for Tebow to win over his critics: Superman and King James.
