Here is the cumulative effect of what Josh Howard has accomplished for himself since the infamous radio interview on "The Michael Irvin Show" on April 25. When the Mavericks hold media day Sept. 29, it will be mandatory for Howard to answer this question: "Since it was the off-season and you have stated publicly that you smoke marijuana in the off-season, were you under the influence of marijuana when you said you don't celebrate the national anthem because you are black?" If Howard's play last year was negatively affected by sensitive issues such as the deaths of his college coach and members of his family and the trade of close friend Devin Harris, how will consistently nasty disapproval disturb him?"

We'll find out. A lot of people have written on other forums that they plan to boo him and the rest of the team. A lot of vicious stuff,actually. He doesn't seem to be learning from his mistakes, but booing him isn't going to solve anything,either.

I sure hope so. If not the Mavs are up a creek, because his trade value is at its lowest point.
