Want to know why Dwight Howard is one of the most hated athletes in the country right now? We've got you covered.
According to a recent story that ran in the Orlando Sentinel, Howard is still talking bad about his former team, the Orlando Magic, and it's for the silliest reason imaginable. In the story, Howard admits that he's not happy about the fact that the Magic allowed Tobias Harris to wear his No. 12 once he left Orlando. Although Harris wears it to honor a friend who died of leukemia, Howard thinks that his jersey number shouldn't be worn by anyone on the Magic. He doesn't come right out and say this, but it sounds like he wants the number to be retired one day.
"I just think that despite what happened, there was a lot of things that I did and that we did as a team, and that number was special down there," he said. "And I was a little bit upset about [the team letting Harris wear it]."
Are you kidding, Dwight?! GO WORRY ABOUT THE HOUSTON ROCKETS! Unless, of course, you want everyone to hate you even more than they already do. Good grief.
