Dwight said the same thing about Stan Van Gundy and Lakers fans, so take it with a grain of salt. But, here is what Dwight had to say courtesy of Bleacher Report.
“I feel like me and Kevin just have a special relationship already, from just the first time we’ve talked until now,” Howard said in an interview with Bleacher Report. “He said he watched almost all my games. It was just a shock. You got Kevin McHale, one of the greatest players to play the game, our coach, dissecting my game and all my tapes.”
“Now I have a coach who actually played my position,” Howard said. “He can understand when I need the ball when I need to be in certain positions. Maybe some of those other coaches couldn’t see it that way. But he does.”
I am withholding judgement until I see how it works out on the court. Ball Don’t Lie as the legendary Rasheed Wallace once said.
