Within a few minutes the Tweet had over 2,000 retweets, and was captured by plenty of folks on the Internet. It also drew some very negative criticism on Twitter, as one would imagine.

Dwight Howard apologizes for tweet about Palestine

At least Dwight didn’t say he was hacked. I am not sure why he is apologizing for though, if that is how he feels, that is how he feels. I can see apologize for making a political comment he didn’t mean to make, but how can you offend someone with your belief? It would be like apologizing for being Catholic to a Jewish person, you can’t control how others feel about an issue...

Dwight Howard to Melo: Let God Guide His Decision

Where was God when Dwight was bringing an under-age girl to his hotel room or reminding him about not having eight babies out of wedlock? Guess God only has time for Free Agency decisions.  With that being said, the rest of the advice was sound.  Melo have to do what is best for him and his family (I’d advise that isn’t signing with Houston).
