Dwight Howard on Why This Comeback Will Work Better Than His Other Comebacks Because He is Going to Play Like Draymond Green Now (Video)

It feels like a distant memory when Dwight Howard was regarded as the best center in the world. Now, the former perennial All-Star has played on six different teams.

He’s currently on a seventh team in the Memphis Grizzlies after being traded from the Nations Capital. However, he’s expected to be bought out.

In a recent interview with Stadium and The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Howard explained how Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green inspired him:

“I want to be whatever a team needs me to be. I’ve played in every situation so far. I used to really hate how Draymond plays, but what I noticed watching him during these playoffs was that he does everything for the team.

“He’s everywhere. He’ll get a tech, he’ll take a charge, he’ll be everywhere on defense. He’s talking. He does everything. It doesn’t show up in the stat sheet, but it shows up in the mind of everyone watching. I want to be that person.”

This past season, Howard only played nine games due to a glute injury.
