Dwight Howard

#Trademarking

Los Angeles

EXCLUSIVE

0810_dwight-howard_TMZ_TrademarkJust days before Dwight Howard got officially traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, he was presciently #trademarking the city he will now call home ... and TMZ has the hashtag-tastic photo.

For the uninitiated, "trademarking" is the latest in social media photo trends -- a la Tebowing and planking -- and all the crazy kids are doing it (Cody Simpson and the Jenner sisters, to name a few).

Howard was outside the L'Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills (where Howard has been staying the past few months) earlier this week when he ran into Ryan Nassif (left to Dwight) whose dad Chris Nassif is a prominent talent agent and whose uncle is "Real Housewives" star Paul Nassif

Ryan asked Dwight if he would partake in a little trademarking with him ... since the city would soon be his ... and the two posed for the pic with a few friends.

No offense D12, but Kobe might already hold the trademark on this town.

Well if 3 people I never heard of are doing it, it must be cool! Trademarking? Who thought of that genius name? Oh yeah, and the baby finally got his bottle with a trade. Now I don't have to hear about him every 5 seconds on ESPN.

L.A. is notorious for stealing things from other cities, like the Dodgers, Lakers, Raiders, Clippers, soon to be the Chargers, Shaq, and now Dwight Howard.

How can you possibly report that Chris Nassif is a "prominent talent agent"?? Chris Nassif's agency
went out of business, and he is a complete loser
who stole all the clients money. Really - I know
you're tmz but check your facts.
