While Dwight Howard does his best to clean up what he says were “twisted” words, J.J. Redick and Rashard Lewis are the latest ex-teammate to express their displeasure with the Lakers’ center “disrespectful” but unsurprising comments about his former teammates being players “nobody wanted.”
According to ESPN Los Angeles:
“I’m not surprised by it,” Redick told ESPNLosAngeles.com Wednesday evening before hisMilwaukee Bucks played the Los Angeles Clippers. “I would be more surprised when Dwight starts taking responsibility. That would be the most negative thing I can say, but that’s the truth.
“You can’t take all the credit and not accept any of the blame.”
According to the Orlando Sentinel:
“It’s disrespectful more than anything. We helped Dwight become the player he was,” said Lewis, who signed this summer with the Miami Heat, which faced the Magic on Wednesday night.
“We made a good run. Hell, look at those (conference and division) banners hanging in the stands. They don’t say Dwight Howard on them…”
