I know it is LA and the Lakers, but Dwight seems to have a lot to say, all the time. His former teammate Jameer Nelson says he talks too much to the media and grow up. He isn’t the only one who feels that way. When I read these quotes from Dwight, it sounds like, he either wants people to feel sorry for him or he wants to be praised for playing hurt, like millions of players before him. “Looking back on it, I could have sat out the whole season until now and starting playing now, but I just felt like we had such a great opportunity,” he said. “Some of these guys, their windows for winning is very small and I just wanted to get back and try to do whatever I can to help this team, knowing that I wasn’t in great shape. My body wasn’t all the way there yet.” “Sometimes I have gotten beat up for it, but that’s fine. I’ll take all those hits and I’ll keep moving,” Howard said. “People watch games and they see me playing so they think it’s all good. It’s just a time thing. I’ve just got to keep going, keep pushing myself and it’ll get better.” We have heard this before, it is becoming a broken record now. Dwight isn’t in shape, he is playing through pain and etc etc. The season is almost over, no need for excuses.  It is time to let it go and just play.
