WTF...

http://www.insidesoc...t-mike-dantoni/

But with Dwight Howard facing endless scrutiny regarding his injured right shoulder and how he fits in with the Lakers, his father, Dwight Howard Sr., told the Atlanta Journal Constitution he needs to have a sitdown with Kobe Bryant and coach Mike D’Antoni to hash things over. After all, Bryant has received plenty of attention for comments attributed to him in an ESPN.com report this week suggesting Howard needed to return quickly even if his shoulder isn’t fully healed. Although he denies it, D’Antoni also indirectly has suggested the same thing.

But the involved parties don’t have any interest on the idea. Instead, the Lakers (24-27) say they’re strictly focused on Sunday’s game against the Miami Heat (33-14) at American Airlines Arena.

“Honestly, I’m done talking about it,” Bryant said. “There’s nothing to talk about it. There’s nothing to discuss. It’s silly.”

D’Antoni wasn’t necessarily opposed to it. He just believes the Lakers have already gone down that path, including having an air-it-out meeting two weeks ago against Memphis. Part of that meeting involved Bryant confronting Howard about his frustration surrounding his offensive role.

That’s cool,” D’Antoni said. “He’s his father. He should defend his son. But I thought we had that in Memphis. We’re good.”

It remains to be seen what Howard thinks of the idea.

He’s publicly defended his decision to sit out two games last week because of his aggravated labrum in his right shoulder. Howard also bristled at Bryant’s comments attributed to him that suggested he needed to return even with an unhealthy shoulder, quotes Bryant maintains were blown out of proportion.


“It’s really not that big of a deal,” Bryant said. “In Boston, they made something out of nothing. There wasn’t anything I said that was out of the ordinary or nothing I said before talking to him. They made a really big deal out of something that is really nothing.”

Howard also had little interest in adding to the storyline.

“I don’t want to get into it,” Howard said. “My dad is a grown man. That’s how he feels. We’ll leave it at that.”

Howard offered a similar comment on his dad’s assertion that he will re-sign this summer with the Lakers.

Whether Howard Sr’s comments reflects his son’s level of thinking remains to be seen. The ACJ article quotes his father as saying his son has talked to him frequently about this season and his frustrations. Howard conceded they talk everyday but nothing about basketball.

“That’s what’s he’s supposed to do, support his kid,” Howard said of his father’s comments. “He’s going to do the best at that.”

The Lakers will soon find out if they make the best of their situation too.

“It’s people who try to harbor and hang onto stuff all the time,” Bryant said of the dynamic between him and Howard. “He just has to do his job, go out and defend. We do our jobs and do what we need to do to help us win. It’s not rocket science.”

Well he screwed him over by making him sign an extension with orlando.

What about the Hawks? “Dwight hasn’t said anything about Atlanta, either. But he likes home. I think he would love to end his career here, even though he hasn’t said that publicly.”

Dwight doesnt seem really interested about what his dad says too

Dwight is like 27/28 years old. He's a big boy. If you have a problem with the players in your team or your role, you go schedule a meeting with management, the head coach, or the players. The only people that should speak on behalf of Dwight is Dwight himself or his agent.

All this what others are saying Dwight is or will do needs to shut up. Dwight needs to shut up too. Kobe needs to shut up too. The media if feeding off of this bull. Just play and keep in house. This is just stupid.

Kobe and Dwight have to figure the [expletive] out .. Its childish !! and it starts by talking to the media !! both need to shut the [expletive] up and focus on games .. I don't think they both realize we might not make the playoffs .. smh

Father's Love

His son is in trouble and also his son is injured and probable that injury might end his career. He has the right to protect his son and to say something about his son. He is the father of Dwight Howard and has a freedom of speech.

They should do this privately not in the media.
