The Lakers are an entertaining bunch.
Dwight Howard vs. Kobe Bryant is the closest we will get to Pacquiao vs. Mayweather. Kobe essentially said Dwight is a sensitive clown who needs to play hurt.
Here was Dwight reply to that courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk.
“That’s his opinion. That’s it. He’s not a doctor, I’m not a doctor.”’
“”I want to play, I mean, why wouldn’t I want to play? But, at the same time, this is my career, this is my future, this is my life. I can’t leave that up to anybody else because nobody else is going to take care of me. So, if people are pissed off that I don’t play or if I do play, whatever it may be, so what? This is my career. If I go down, then what? Everybody’s life is going to go on. I don’t want to have another summer where I’m rehabbing and trying to get healthy again. I want to come back and have another great year. That’s what I want to do.”
If Dwight Howard is truly injured he should sit out, but if he isn’t going to hurt his shoulder or back any worse than he already has, he needs to stop whining and play.
