    Basketball gods just let the Lakers win this year for Kobe. Dwight being on the team would make it even more special.

    I feel so good to be witness to the rebirth of Dwight Howard. Alot of his criticism is warranted but alot is also very unwarranted. I believe that he is very a misunderstood man. Glad to see him living in his beliefs and truth and he seems happy with himself, basketball and life. Looking forward to seeing him in the dunk contest.

    If you listen without watching the video you'd think he was interviewing Future.

    I am so curious about this "full circle". I really thought he's gonna do 360 dunk. But......hmmmmm, since this is his redemption season, this could mean Superman is back.

    Dwight technically is about 6’11” in shoes, but he’s like 6’9 or 6’10” barefoot so that’s why he’s listed at that due to the nba’s new measurement policy

    So we just gunna act like Dwight never looked 6 foot 11 and isn’t clearly taller than Lebron and Kyle kuzma and Ingram etc... all guys who are 6 9, yet the same height as guys who are 6 11?!

    I'm rooting for Dwight. I'm a longtime Laker fan.... I absolutely hated Dwight coming to my team the 1st time. I knew instinctually it was going to be a car wreck. But I have to admit, Dwight HAS CHANGED. BIG TIME. I'm not sure what has transpired in his life but the metamorphosis has been obvious. I'm now fully on board with him in a Lakers jersey. He has earned it. Respect!

    Windhorst needs to stop asking ‘was there ever a point where you knew you were the best player on your team?’ and ‘was there ever a point where you knew you weren’t the best player on your team?’. Obviously at a young age Dwight probably realized he was the best player on all his teams but he was too humble to say that. And even when in the NBA he had to have known he was better than everybody he ever played with on the Magic. It probably wasn’t until he got to the Lakers with Kobe that it even crossed his mind. But even so, to get to where Dwight is, you have to go out every night believing you’re the best player. Just silly questions in my opinion.
