Dwight Howard doesnít care if Deron Williams isnít his friend anymore

Quote:
For years, Dwight Howard and Deron Williams talked about teaming up. They realized these kinds of super teams are the only way to compete with the Heat in the East.

And it almost came together. Williams was in Brooklyn and Howard was trying to force a trade their to team up, but the Magic screwed it up by not wanting Brook Lopez (or to send Howard where he wanted to go). Then Howard really screwed it up by waiving his early termination option ó once he did that he lost a lot of trade leverage. Brooklynís management got tired of screwing around with it, went and got Joe Johnson and kept Lopez.

Williams is reportedly not thrilled with Howard waiving his leverage and not coming to Brooklyn.

Dwight Howard doesnít care. Hereís his quote, thanks to Stephen Bondy of the New York Daily News, via Sulia:

Quote:
ďThatís my decision. Itís my life so if heís upset because I made a decision for me, so be it. If he doesnít want to be friends because Iím on another team, then so be it. Thereís no need to smooth things over, you know?Ē
Howard is in a position not to care because did okay for himself in the end. After getting over the whole Shaq footsteps thing, he landed on a loaded team that can contend now and plans to rebuild around him in the coming years. And in a major media market. And heís still near a Disney resort.

D-Will, heís on a Nets team off to a nice start in the East (6-2), but still a team nobody really trusts in going all that far when the pressure really comes. But itís another good landing spot, even if we question their roster construction.

And do you really think at the end of the day theyíre not friends anymore?

Doesn't surprise me at all he's indifferent to a fissure in another previously meaningful relationship.

Dwight spends a lot of time telling us he doesn't care what people think of him.

Fair enough. I never head about DWil and his issues. I've been sour on him since he said he needs surgery....... at the start of this season.

Re: Dwight Howard doesnít care if Deron Williams isnít his friend anymore

This is the most ridiculous thread title ever haha, Dwight is a gigantic baby and apparently D-Will is a bigger diva than any of us thought. Still two of my favorite players to watch though.

Re: Dwight Howard doesnít care if Deron Williams isnít his friend anymore

NBA superstars are divas who knew LOL. I gotta find other reasons to dislike players surely not their diva attitudes.

Overall I think Howard is a real nice guy a good kid he got caught up in some stuff that the media made a big deal out of and he didn't know how to handle. It happens with young players. Howard was dealing with Stan Van one of the more slimey slithery nba coaches around. Howard botched the whole free agent thing trying to make everyone happy.

What Deron did with Sloan is alot more unforgivable if I actually gave a shit about the Jazz I might have held it against him.
