After over a year of drama and demands by Dwight Howard, he was finally introduced as a member of the LA Lakers yesterday. He said that he was very happy to be in LA and on the Lakers. As he often does, Adrian Wojnarowski has the scoop on why Howard is happy to be in LA.
When the time comes rest assured Bryant will make something clear: The carnival act ends now. The clowning and goofing are done. During games, players used to hear Kevin Garnett screaming at Howard: "Paint your face, clown!" up and down the floor.
So now we know that KG taunted Howard up and down the floor yelling "Paint your face, clown!" I'm sure that's the PG version of KG's taunts and probably only the tip of the iceberg so to speak. But, having KG taunt you only twice a year rather than 4 times a year would be a big incentive for Dwight to want to stay in the Western conference. But, he still has Perk to deal with over there, and hopefully Perk picks up where KG left off.
Adrian...you act like KG is the only player who taunts beyond the "PG" ratings.. Every player in the league has a mouth and for many it's part of basketball to get inside te opponents head, as it is w/ all sports. Don't be ignorant, fool. He may get more trash talk from Kobe than anyone else. Shut the hell up an stop tryin to sound like you have a hidden inside scoop. Dwight revels in being tainted, why do you think he didn't give a shit about the media "taunting" him day in and day out. Do you think that he would really care more about being called a clown than having the rest of the world call him immature. You tell me dumbass....
