Dwight Howard will reportedly try to revitalize his image in the nation’s capital.
While making an appearance on the latest episode of the Wizards Tipoff Podcast, NBC Sports Washington’s Chris Miller said Howard is going to try to make a long-lasting relationship in DC:
“Dwight has worn out his welcome in the last four places he’s been: Houston, LA, Charlotte and Atlanta, his hometown. From what I’ve been told by a source, he wants to change the narrative on him, what people perceive of him. … I’m excited about him. I went from being ‘okay’ to being excited about him. Because from what I heard, he’s trying to change the image of him coming into a team and wearing out his welcome.”
Former Washington Wizards center Brendan Haywood stated that the Hornets were fed up with Dwight Howard’s locker room antics during an appearance on SiriusXM NBA Radio:
“The locker room hated Dwight Howard. I’m not sure if Charlotte is rebuilding or if they’re just trying to get Dwight Howard out of there, but it was clear the locker room did not like Dwight Howard.”
Desperately needing an upgrade at center, the Wizards will have to hope Howard succeeds in his efforts to become a better teammate on and off the court.
