Dwight Howard Says “There’s No Need To Go Back And Forth” With Kareem

Dwight Howard responds to Kareem.

NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar recently blasted the former Laker on ESPN First Take yesterday:


Dwight Howard refused to work with Kareem because he feels Hakeem Olajuwon fits his game more than the 7-foot Kareem.

Now Dwight has responded to Kareem’s bashing of his game:

“Well you know, I don’t pay any attention to that stuff,” Howard said on Friday just off the floor of the Toyota Center. “I did hear about it but everybody is entitled to their own opinion. When I joined the Lakers, I was the greatest center and then when I left, I was the worst, mentally I wasn’t capable of playing center. I understand that a lot of things are said out of emotion but I would say that if he has anything to say, I’m here in Houston. We can talk man to man. That’s how I feel about it…

“I mean, it’s emotion and the fact that I left the Lakers. It is what it is,” Howard said. “I’m in a great place right now. And there’s no need for me to go back and forth with him. The one thing I would say is that he’s old enough that whatever I do, doesn’t even matter to him.

“I mean, he’s Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. If I’m Kareem, I’m like ‘why?’ Four championships, five championships, whatever (note: six). I’ve been in Airplane, did movies with Bruce Lee. I’m not worried about the young whippersnappers, you know. Just wish him good luck. But people do things different and when I’m done playing I’m going to do whatever I can to help the next generation get better.”

Can the games just start already?



One thought on “Dwight Howard Says “There’s No Need To Go Back And Forth” With Kareem

  • Dwight Howard will never be half the player Kareem was. Dwight Howard has no desire to win; he only wants to get paid. The same goes for that other idiot Andrew Bynum. Shaq was right, he is the last of the big men.
