The main reason Dwight Howard left Los Angeles is because he didn’t like the style of play. It was no secret that Howard did not like D’Antoni offense system.
D’Antoni told the Los Angeles Daily News the following about Howard going to Houston.
“The thing that cracks me up is Houston, they do the exact same thing,” D’Antoni said, laughing. “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.”
D’Antoni wishes Howard well, but does think he needs to accept what makes him a special player rather than envision himself as something he isn’t yet and may never be.
I guess we will just have to wait and see how the Rockets use Howard to see if D’Antoni was right. One thing is for sure Howard needs to give better effort with the Rockets.
