Dwight Howard is continuing to say all the right things since his signing with Houston. That now includes being willing to play power forward next to Omer Asik:
“There is no need to adjust. I have been playing basketball for my whole life. I started it up playing a point guard,” the NBA star told reporters at a press conference to welcome his third visit to Taiwan.
“I think it can make our team tougher. We need [me] being as a power forward some games and Asik being a center. We will have a big lineup, and it will be tough for teams to truly score,” the 27-year-old center said. “You have two guys to play great defense in the paint. So I think it is positive, and it is no conflict,” he added.
So let me get this straight: Dwight Howard is willing to accept a new role to make Omer Asik happy but couldn’t stand the thought of playing second fiddle to Kobe Bryant? Great logic there Dwight.
