When it is time to make a decision Alfred always has the right answer.

“I actually wrote (them) down and can tell it to you — it’s from Batman,” Howard tells USA TODAY Sports. “Batman and Alfred were having a discussion (in the 2012 Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises), and Batman didn’t like what was going on and he felt like the best thing he could do was just hide.

“Alfred told him, ‘You have to endure it. You have to take it. People will hate you for it, but that’s the point of being a legend. You can be that outcast. You can make the choice that no one else can make, and that’s the right choice.’ “

“I kind of took that with me in this situation in L.A.,” he continues. “It was hard, something that most people wouldn’t have done, because they’re looking at the whole situation and people are going to think that I’m running (from the pressure), and people are going to think this or that.

“But I’m like, ‘Man, I want to be this legend, I want to be at the top. So I have to endure all that hate, all that criticism. I have to take it, and that’s what’s going to make me the person and the player I am.’ “

As usual, Dwight is being a little dramatic, but in the end what happens on the court is what will matter the most. If he helps lead the Rockets to a title, then no one can say he made the wrong decision. If he falters again and he will understand what the greatest quote in comic book history really means.

“With great power, comes great responsibility.”
