If Vince Carter is calling you a crybaby, that pretty much should tell you the entire league thinks you are one.
“All the time,” Carter said when asked about Howard’s complaining. “He always talks about how I’m a crybaby. I was like, ‘Yo, you’re the biggest crybaby I know.’ And then later, he’s like, ‘Yo, why’d you say that to me?’ But I know Dwight. It’s all good, but he is [a crybaby].
“I mean, he takes a lot of punishment, but I’m like, ‘Yo, c’mon Dwight, c’mon. You elbowed, you’re sitting in the paint the entire time. What are you whining about?’ He told me to stop crying. I was like, ‘What? Are you serious?’”
Most players whine about calls, it is just Howard is not respected around the league or with the officials.
