Dwight Howard is an NBA superstar, and it seems like he’s a pretty likeable guy. He likes to have fun, jokes around a lot, and has come up with some of the most original dunks in NBA All-Star Weekend’s dunk contest.
That being said, I don’t like the guy.
First, and we’ve covered this pretty thoroughly, he has no right to be claiming “Superman” as his nickname.
Second, sometimes I feel as though he is a bit overrated. Sure, he’s the most dominant defensive force in the league, but his offensive game leaves a lot to be desired. Basically, it’s dunk, tip dunk, layup, or a missed jumper. A man of his ridiculous physical gifts should have developed a semblance of a low post game by now, and he hasn’t. It is ridiculous that people believed he should be the MVP.
Then, last night, he did this.
Why did he feel the need to do that? His smugness is really wearing thin with me.
Here’s hoping LeBron posterizes him in the next round.
