Shaquille O'Neal has criticized Dwight Howard in the past and did so again on Tuesday when he said the Los Angeles Lakers' big man has been too nice in his career and must stiffen up.
"He's too nice," O'Neal said. "I'm a connoisseur of giggling and playing and all that and making you laugh and playing with the fans, but when I cross that line, I'm ready to tear your face off. I don't care who it is. You could put one of my aunts or uncles out there, and I'm going to give him these elbows in their chest and I'm going to throw it down in their face. That's what you have to do.
"He's just too nice. If I was him, I would get into the same mood I was in."
O'Neal said Howard has never reached out to him for advice and he does not want him to.
"He should have known all of this when he signed with L.A.," O'Neal said. "He should have known what he was getting into. My advice to him is to look ...
BEST OF MAXIM
So far Dwight Howard has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Dallas Mavericks.
But now the prized free agent is reportedly interested in joining the Spurs, Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld.com reports on Thursday.
Is this just a case of wanting to play for the best team, or does Howard actually see himself playing at the AT&T Center in San Antonio?
Much was made of Dwight Howard including the Golden State Warriors on his list of five teams that are on his wishlist to sign with in free agency.
It’s a major step forward for the Warriors just to be considered by Howard, one of the league’s best centers. A surprisingly successful season and a trip to the second-round of the NBA Playoffs has changed the landscape a bit and turned...
The NBA season isn't even officially over and one of the main topics thus far has been this: where will Dwight Howard land in the offseason? The Lakers, Rockets, Mavericks, and even the Spurs are supposedly the places the star center is considering.
Howard probably doesn't even know where he will land, but former Laker star Magic Johnson has his own option where he should...
Dwight Howard and Shaquille O’Neal have never had anything nice to say about one another. Comparisons between the two because of their career paths come naturally, and neither big man seems to like being compared to his counterpart. Most recently, Shaq called Howard out for not being mean enough on the floor. “He’s too nice,” [...]
Dwight Howard's performance in the 2009 Playoffs is the lone Magic player that cracked Kevin Pelton's ranking of the greatest individual Playoff performances for ESPN.com coming in at No. 37. That does trail 2009 LeBron James, who according to Pelton had the greatest postseason from a player who did not win the championship.
Howard averaged 20.3 points per game and 15...
YOU DON'T SAY
Given his affiliation with the Lakers, it may come as a surprise to some that Magic Johnson implied that perhaps the Rockets are the best fit for Dwight Howard.
This is actually happening. Perceived as a "soft" big man, Dwight Howard will be voicing the character "Cold Turkey" in a movie about time-traveling turkeys.
It’s not often that I get the opportunity to call Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard, a talking turkey, but he will be lending his voice to a talking turkey in an upcoming animated motion picture.
The movie is called “Free Birds” which will be produced by Relativity/Reel FX and D-12 will voice a time traveling bird:
Howard plays Cold Turkey, one of the Wild Turkeys that...
Yesterday on ESPNLA, Shaq called his MiniMe, er Dwight Howard, “too nice.” It’s probably the best way anyone’s called him annoying. “I’m a connoisseur of giggling and playing and all that and making you laugh and playing with the fans, but when I cross that line, I’m ready to tear your face off…He’s just too nice.”
I gotta agree. Less nice Dwight. More hermit...
