Ever since entering the NBA in 2004, Dwight Howard has been known for his candid nature and often misconstrued joy and demeanor on the court. As he filled in for Shaquille O’Neal on Inside the NBA last night, the TNT crew (led by Charles Barkley) asked Howard a few hard-hitting questions covering Dwight’s perception, relationship with James Harden & future plans (among others):
No matter how you feel about Dwight, it’s refreshing for an athlete to discuss himself with such a high degree of candor. From discussing his likability to reaffirming his drive and passion for the game, most people aren’t able to see the other side of things, only what is portrayed through his words or actions in the media.
Taking constructive criticism and providing his “unreleased” perspective ended up making yesterday’s segment very real.
The interview is a must-watch for any NBA fan.
