This all started when Shaq said that Brook Lopez and Andrew Bynum were better centers than Dwight Howard. Shaq for whatever reason has never taken a liking to Dwight and has always taking little shots at him over the years. I think it has to do with the whole Superman thing which I always thought was odd considering Superman isn’t an original name.
They have some weird Center feud thing going on.
When alerted about Shaq’s comments here is what Dwight had to say.
“I don’t care what Shaq says,” Howard told reporters after practice. “Shaq played the game. He’s done. He’s gone. It’s time to move on.”
“He hated the fact when he played that the older guys were talking about him and how he played and now he’s doing the exact same thing,” Howard said. “Just let it go. There’s no sense for him to be talking trash to me. He did his thing in the league. He’s one of the most dominant players to ever play the game. Just sit back and relax. You did your thing. Your time is up. So, I don’t really care. I don’t really care. He can say whatever he wants to say.”
“I have respect for him and what he did for basketball. That’s it. Like I said, he’s already did his thing. He played. When my time is up, there’s going to be somebody else who can do everything I can do, and probably do it better. Instead of me talking about him, I’ll do my job to try to help him to get to where I’m at. I think that’s what guys who have done it before us should do.”
Of course Dwight cares because he is sensitive like that, but I agree with what he is saying 100%. Hard to take Shaq seriously when it is so obvious he has biased against Dwight.
One thing they have in common are a lot of mistresses. Check out one of the 5 Dwight Howard’s baby mamas.
