Found July 20, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Dwight Howard has certainly had his share of critics following his decision to join the Houston Rockets. (OK. He had plenty before then as well.) One such critic has been Howard's former coach Mike D'Antoni. Howard had been vocal in the past about how he asked the Lakers to hire Phil Jackson instead of D'Antoni following the firing of Mike Brown last season and has been critical of D'Antoni's offensive system. In an interview with the Los Angeles Daily News, D'Antoni laughed about Howard landing in Houston, saying that the Rockets' offensive system is similar to the one the Lakers run: "The thing that cracks me up is Houston, they do the exact same thing. And so (Howard) is gonna go to Houston? OK, so did they talk about change there? Don’t tell me that it’s that different."

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni predicts Dwight Howard will struggle offensively as a Houston Rocket

Taking a swipe at the spineless center, Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni predicts Dwight Howard will struggle to perform in the Houston Rockets’ transition offense. Acquired by Los Angeles last August in a four-team, 12-player deal, the 27-year-old Howard signed with Houston as a free agent earlier this month.

Missing on Howard led to good summer for Mavs

James Harden Doesnt Want To Talk About Dwight

Yesterday he walked into a media session, but asked the reporters to promise not to ask him any questions about D12. They told him they couldn’t make that promise. So Harden promptly walked away, ending the interview. It’s heroism like this that make us love you, James. I hear every time he says...

Heat to be major players in summer of 2014

In the wake of Dwight Howard’s departure, the Los Angeles Lakers have been looking forward to 2014, when their options could be wide with a deep free-agent class and perhaps as much as $50 million in salary-cap room. But there could be another huge player in free agency next summer, another destination team with a championship pedigree: The Miami Heat. That may be hard to fathom...

How about Asik in black and silver?

An interesting opportunity has arisen from Dwight Howard officially taking his talents to Houston.  Omer Asik has made his desire not to play behind Howard known via a trade request. The San Antonio Spurs should seize the moment and see if the Houston Rockets would be willing to entertain Asiks’ trade request.
