Dwight Howard just can't catch a break right now, can he? Just one day after the New York Post revealed that Howard's relationship with Kobe Bryant may be even worse than we thought, Stephen A. Smith went on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning earlier today to tell yet another negative story about Howard. This one is about how Howard managed to get on Spurs coach Gregg Popovich's bad side during the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday.
According to Smith, Popovich tried to draw up a play for Howard during a timeout on Sunday night. But, when he looked up, Howard wasn't in the Western Conference huddle. Instead, he was sitting on the bench messing around with a couple of celebrities who were sitting nearby. So, Popovich scrapped the play and dropped a couple of F-bombs in Howard's direction.
If this story is true, it's not really the end of the world. This was the All-Star Game after all. So, it's not like he really hurt his team by sitting out of a huddle. But, it's just one more indication of why Howard is getting such a bad rap right now.
