PLAYERS: Dwight Howard
TEAMS: Houston Rockets

Via Larry Brown Sports:

Houston Rockets centeDwight Howard deals with more criticism than any player in the NBA, and most of it is well-deserved. Howard’s free agency adventures have shown us that he loves to be the center of attention and isn’t exactly the most humble superstar in the league. However, we have to give the big man credit for the way he roasted a hater on Twitter earlier this week.

On Tuesday evening, one of Howard’s followers tweeted at him to tell him she thought he would never win a championship ring. Rather than ignore the troll, Dwight pulled out an epic insult.

Boom, roasted. This is not the first time Howard has defended himself on Twitter, but it is easily his best comeback. There isn’t much the young lady can say in response to that. I’m certainly not his biggest fan, but I’d be lying if I said that didn’t make me laugh.
