I’m not sure if it was a shot at anyone in L.A., but Dwight Howard is extremely happy about being in Houston.
Howard told RealGM that he has command of his lockerroom again, and he doesn’t have to tell anyone that he needs his touches. They already know.
“I don’t have to say, ‘I need the ball,’” Howard told RealGM. “The guys here know what we have to do to be successful, to play inside out. We have young guys, and they want to accomplish some things in this league also. I understand that. I understand that we need everyone. If I can make sure that guys are happy, that they’re getting the ball and getting a rhythm, it makes it tough to beat us.
“My time, my shots will come. I want to make sure guys around me are elevated. Me being the oldest guy on the team as far as seasons, I have to understand that I have to show these guys the right way to go.”
Howard told RealGM that his cries for touches and clout in the Lakers lockerroom went on deaf ears.
