DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) -  If you’re following the saga of NBA player Dwight Howard you know he’s looking at both NBA teams in Texas – the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets.

The Texas fast-food institution that is Whataburger got in on the deal by Tweeting at the prize free agent:

Mavericks fans were not amused – because it pointed favor to Houston,  and the fans fired back on social media.

UTA marketing expert Dr. Elten Briggs belives the slight was unintentional and will blow over.

Whataburger got it’s start in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1950, but now calls San Antonio home…. guess the Spurs weren’t an option.
