The last thing I asked Dwight Howard tonight was if he had a message for L.A. ...
“I want to thank all the fans," Howard told ESPNLA.com in a phone interview Friday night after informing the Houston Rockets he would be signing with them.
"I want to thank them for supporting me through the good times, the bad times, the airballs, the missed shots, the missed dunks – everything that could have went wrong did and the fans still supported me. I developed a lot of relationships with a lot of people throughout the city of Los Angeles and a lot of Laker fans around the world.
"I appreciate them for sticking by me. I know a lot of people are going to be upset and a lot of people are going to hate me for doing this, but I just want to say thank you (to Los Angeles) from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate the support. Everybody here was great to me and this decision had nothing to do with anything but me having to do what’s best for my career and that’s (Houston) at this point.”
