That is what gets him the respect from peers and fans alike, but I don’t think anyone respects Dwight Howard right now, on or off the court.
Here is just a latest example why from Larry...

Is it really hard to be a fan of more than one team in a sport?
It seems in past sports history, fans were more fickle and diehard for their team. In contemporary times, its a whole new ballgame for fans.
It’s not hard to be a fan of multiple teams in one sport. Everyone knows this.
