Jameer Nelson had something, and nothing, to say about Dwight Howard’s latest dig at his former team. In regards to the interview with KCAL-TV in which Howard said he played on a Magic team “full of people who nobody wanted”, Nelson criticized his former teammate for being unprofessional in the media.
According to the Orlando Sentinel:
“At some point, when are you [Dwight] gonna as a man, when are you going to take ownership and stay out of the media in a professional manner?” Nelson told the Sentinel after Wednesday’s shooatround in Miami.
“I would be less of a man to comment on certain things that people comment on about me and my teammates. We had a great run as a group, as core guys, and he was a part of it (reaching the 2009 Finals) and for him to say things about anybody in a negative manner, that’s up to him.
