Phil Jackson Says Dwight Howard Will Be Better Off Being an “Astro”
If the Lakers would have hired Phil Jackson as their head coach, Dwight Howard would still be in LA, but they didn’t and he is gone.
Phillip chimed in on the situation with some smooth slander of Dwight Howard.
What DH brings to the game is power and D. This past year didn’t show due it to rehab and confusion. If he is better of an Astro, so be it.

There are always hidden meanings in Phil messages, sometimes they are hard to decipher, but I think what he is saying is if Dwight Howard wants to be in a smaller basketball market with less pressure, then so be. Just like the Houston Astros aren’t considered baseball royalty, the Rockets aren’t considered a marquee team in the NBA.
If Dwight wins championships maybe that will change, but until then Phil says just let him be.
