Dwight Howard woke up recently and realized he wanted to play laser tag.

But he didn't want to play alone, so he invited 5.1 million of his closest friends with one simple Twitter message.

Fortunately for Howard, he's got some cash to spare.

The Rockets big man, who earned $21 million in salary last season and is reportedly worth $100 million, picked up the tab for a day of fun and games at Main Event Entertainment outside Houston. According to CSN Houston, several hundred people showed up.

"I woke up and I was like, 'I want to play laser tag but I didn't want to play by myself,'" Howard told CSN Houston. "So I tweeted it out and a lot of people showed up. It was a lot of fun."

Howard was joined by teammate Troy Daniels, the D-League call-up who hit the game-winning shot in Game 3 of the Rockets' first-round playoff series with the Portland Trail Blazers.
