CHICAGO — Dwight Howard paid tribute to Kobe Bryant in his return to the NBA Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday night. 

In his second dunk of the night, Howard pulled out his signature Superman costume with a blue shirt and red cape. Then he revealed that Bryant’s No. 24 was written across the Superman logo in red letters. 

Howard received an alley-oop for a tomahawk slam that garnered a score of 49 from the five-judge panel. 

In Howard’s first dunk he received a score of 41 for a hanging (with a pose) 180 windmill. 

Bryant and his daughter Gianna were among nine who died in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26. Howard told reporters last week he had planned to ask for Bryant’s help in his dunks before the accident. 

Howard, who won the dunk contest back in 2008, has revived his career this season as a reserve big man for the Los Angeles Lakers in his second stint with the team. The 34-year-old returned as one of the oldest participants in the dunk contest’s history.
