As you might figure, many NBA teams are currently looking to acquire the services of Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard including the Dallas Mavericks.
A local fast food restaurant called “Raising Cane’s” decided to make D-12 a rather tasty offer by offering free chicken fingers for life if he signs with the organization.
Below is a just a small snippet from the Raising Cane’s press release about the offer to Dwight:
Forget the millions being offered by teams across the league. Basketball superstar Dwight Howard stands to earn free chicken finger meals — for life — if he signs a free agent contract to play in Dallas, thanks to a bold pledge by DFW-area Raising Cane’s restaurants.
The nation’s #1 quick service chain, which currently boasts 20 restaurants across the DFW Metroplex, is known for its ONE LOVE® — quality chicken finger meals – and it’s putting a lifetime of them on the line to persuade Howard to sign with Dallas.
“These next few days, Dwight Howard will be making arguably the most important career decision of his life,” said Adam Reed, Marketing Manager at Raising Cane’s. “We have a lot of passionate fans among our Crewmembers in our DFW restaurants, so we thought we’d make Dwight an offer he couldn’t refuse to up the ante for a Dallas-bound decision. We are also calling on every Dallas fan to join us in making the case online, in order to bring the big man to Big D.”
Raising Cane’s has created a special hashtag, #CANES4DWIGHT, that fans can use to join the campaign to recruit Howard to Dallas and bring the championship trophy back where it belongs.
For those wanting to crunch the numbers on how much this would cost Raising Cane’s over Dwight’s lifetime, the estimate is about $600,000, if Dwight hit the restaurant every day and ordered both a 6-finger/25-finger combo.
