Dwight Howard recently sat down for an interview with Sirius XM NBA Radio, and like every other NBA star he was asked about the Golden State Warriors. Howard said he saw a little bit of their preseason game against the Clippers and that free agent signee Kevin Durant looks happy. However, Howard said he hasn’t really looked at Golden State and doesn’t know who’s on the team.
How do you look at Golden State?
Well, to be honest with you, I haven’t even looked at Golden State.
You haven’t looked at Golden State?
I have not. That’s the honest-to-God truth. I’m happy for K.D. I know a lot of people have been killing him for leaving and going to Golden State, but hey man, he looks happy out there. I did have a chance to, I went to the bowling alley and I saw the first half of their game against the Clippers and he looks happy. He’s in a great situation for himself. But I haven’t really had a chance to really sit down, I don’t really know who’s on their team. I just glanced on the game for a couple minutes. Like I said, I saw the expressions on K.D.’s face of how happy he was. I’m happy for him. They’re going to be a really good team. Hopefully, it would be great to be playing ’em in the Finals. That’d be fun. ‘Cause I personally, they’ve beaten the teams I’ve been on the last couple years, and I want to beat those guys really bad.
Howard’s focused on his new team and when he says he doesn’t know who is on the Warriors, I’m sure he is referring to the role players not the stars. The continued focus on the Warriors has to get annoying for the players on the 29 other teams. It will be interesting to see how that plays out.
