Dwight Howard immature?
With that being said while rumors are swirl that he is already thinking of an exit strategy from the Lakers, Dwight stepped up to the mic and said it is time for him to start dominating again.
“I think this will be the start of a new season for us tonight,” Howard said after the team’s shootaround Wednesday in preparation for their game against the Memphis Grizzlies. “Hopefully our effort and energy is where it needs to be tonight. But, it starts with me. I have to bring it.”
“I have to do more for this team. There are a lot of responsibilities on my shoulders. I have to step up and take it. It has to be me. It has to start with me. I’m a guy that has to dominate for us to win. We’re not going to win unless I dominate.”
He was asked about complaining about only getting five shots against the Bulls and here is what he had to say.
“That’s over with,” Howard said. “I can’t think about it. That was immature. I shouldn’t have done it, but today is a new day and today is a new game.”
He also refused to talk about his future in LA, which is fine, because if he chooses to leave that is his right, but at this very moment he is going to try to get the Lakers back on track.
