Dwight Howard Sounds Off… This Time About HIs Former Team, The L.A. Lakers. WOW!

Dwight Howard has been very vocal lately. He’s been showing up for media events ready to tell all about his former and current career experiences, almost to the point of saying too much. This time, in an interview with ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan, Howard tells of his time spent with the Los Angeles Lakers a couple years back:

“I’ll never forget the game we played against the Celtics in Boston [on Feb. 7, 2013]. I hadn’t practiced for a while — I had just been working on the treadmill. But I played in Boston. We got blown out. Coach [Mike D’Antoni] still had me in when we were down 30. After the game, I’m walking off the court and a Lakers fan throws his jersey and hits me in the face. It was my name on that jersey. I will never forget that the rest of my life.”

Howard struggled mightily in L.A. after his numbers saw a significant decrease from his Orlando days. He left L.A. after only one season for the Houston Rockets. It’s clear Howard did not enjoy his time in L.A. There were even disputes reported that he and Kobe Bryant didn’t get along and that team chemistry was a major issue. He is now having chemistry issues with his current team too.

Howard may choose to opt-out of his current contract and leave Houston after only two seasons, making it another disappointing stint with an NBA team.
