http://www.prosportsdaily.com/articles/report-durant-trashtalked-dwight-howard-repeatedly-said-youre-a-pssy-329963.html

I included the link so you guys can see the video and article but things seemed to have gotten ugly and some of the ugliness was towards Dwight Howard mainly. The articles talks about Kobe also getting into it with Howard earlier this season, although he still might be bitter because of how bad it went with Howard when he was on the Lakers.

Either way, Howard get's so much criticism in the media and now by some of the more respected players in the NBA. Is there really something here and Howard is somewhat hated? I really didn't like how he handled the Orlando exit and I have always seen him as the guys that wants people to like him but just doesn't know how to accomplish it. Kind of irritates me.

What do you guys think?

LOL ... dude couldnt even bench the bar coming out of college ( I wonder if he could do it now ) and he wants to play the tough guy? No wonder Dwight just laughed at him.

I mean trash talking is part of the game but at some point there is a common theme when people question Howard's competitiveness. Some people really take games seriously and others not that much. Howard, seems like that guy that is just happy to be here, no real passion. And btw, he is at least on the surface more built than Durant. But then again, who isn't more built than Durant?

trash talking doesn't mean you are wanting to fight the guy, obviously. It's always been in basketball, since it became big on the streets decades, and decades ago.

Dwight seems to have changed since his Orlando days, personality wise.

we are only a few years removed from Dwight being nearly as good as Durant is, and probably as impactful, before he hurt his back, he was a total beast dude. And he is still a top 7-8 player.

he doesn't look like he has the drive to be the leader of a team anymore. I personally think his Van Gundy handling, and his lost year in LA just weighed down on him more than we think it did. I don't think its his back, he still moves amazingly. I just don't see the same competitor.

That's a good point. It would have been uglier had that been to Shaq or Perk. How about someone like Laimbeer or Ron Artest (MWP)?

Thing is though Durant has the shooting touch of Nash with the height of a Center, he'll last a long long time in the league, Dwight relies on his athleticism more.

Dwight seems to have changed since his Orlando days, personality wise.

There is basketball trash talking and their is walking right up to someone chest to chest after a scuffle (NBA standards) and calling him a ***** repeatedly. Those are fighting words, not basketball trash talking.

This whole diss Dwight thing reminds me of a few years back where it seemed everyone was testing Pau Gasol's manhood, calling him out before/after games and trying to punk him during them. I didn't see the game, but it seems between all of the mini NBA scuffles Dwight did something to really piss Durant up. He ignored the Beverly/Telfair altercation and went straight up to Dwight.

Exactly. There's a difference between trash talking on the court and calling out someone's manhood. KD went out of his way to specifically call Dwight out and he wasn't even in the damn game.

This. If Dwight laughs it off, he's a puss that won't fight back. If he swings at an injured player, he's a cheap monster.

Why don't one of you guys put up a $20 million fight purse up for an offseason boxing match between these two? Because I guarantee KD won't be calling him that anymore. You think he's a *****? Prove it. Otherwise, shut your mouth.

Artest fully loaded and viciously elbowed a defenseless player to his temple and got what, 6 games? And he's the guy most likely to receive a maximum suspension/fine due to his past. Not sure where this precedent is that people think a punch to a player is a year suspension without pay. Seen that on here a lot lately.

Dwight's a joke, whatever. Everybody in the league (likely including himself) seem to recognize that. Ultra talented athlete/player, but a clown that nobody respects.

Comparing something that was deemed questionable with motive or intent during game play vs a guy hitting an injured player during a game break? Really? That's where this forum has come to? Clearly if Dwight loads up and swings and further hurts KD he's done for a prolonged period closer to get what MWP got during the brawl than what he got for Harden incident

To get this guy, Kevin Durant, to do what he did, you know it’s starting to become a problem with players, because Kevin Durant doesn’t really talk to anybody … [Durant] goes at people that are fake with stuff. Only fake guys. Fake guys to me are when they’re always woofing, woofing, woofing, and they don’t really do nothing.” Triangle Offense

Dwight played hurt through an injury everyone plays hurt through and rarely ever require surgery. There are guys who go entire seasons playing with torn labrums. Your comparing apples and oranges here. And something tells me the "*****" that Durant referred to Dwight as was less about pain tolerance and more about being a mentally soft "teddy bear" who loves to throw elbows but wants to avoid confrontation at all costs after he does.

Foot surgery is a different animal than a freaking partially torn labrum. There isn't a doctor in the world that would tell you to play thru Durant's injury. Every doctor in the world would tell you you can play through Dwight's injury without much (if any) risk of crippling injury. Foot problems end careers, torn labrums don't. You can have a torn labrum and not even know it.

Durant is a tremendous basketball player but it irates me when he tries hard to act tough. He is not who he wants to portray himself to be. He just doesn't have that tough guy thing in him.

On the other hand, Dwight is really a baby. He needs to set an example already. One of these nights he needs to smack someone so hard that next time anyone wants to insult him will think 10 times. If that warrants a ban, so be it. BTW, it's comical to see Lakers fans so mad at Dwight. I remember when Dwight was traded to the Lakers, they were proclaiming Dwight as the next Wilt/Shaq/Kareem. Move on guys.

I wasn't responding to you directly, I was mocking Chronz' weak *** attempt to prop up Dwights toughness and rescue him from this thread.

I do see the point in trash talking - its psychological. You miss a few shots, make a few turnovers and the guy harassing you won't shut the **** up, that will get into a lot of guys heads where they don't even want to attempt to make a play anymore. Obviously its all relative and some guys respond different than others, but I don't think its coincidence that many premier defenders over time and a large portion of top 10 GOATs all relished in the art. I don't think there is a more intimate situation in sports than one guy on D, one guy sizing him up on O, and the two going at it. Obviously the pitcher/hitter in baseball comes to mind, but those guys are 60 feet apart and hardly exchanging constant words, looks, hand checks and body-to-body contact.

I honestly never heard the guy talking to me, so I figured why would I, meaning, trash talking didn't phase me in the slightest, I tuned it out entirely. Could be why I don't get the point....Some do listen to it. My suggestion: grow a pair and don't worry about it..

Dwight played hurt through an injury everyone plays hurt through and rarely ever require surgery. There are guys who go entire seasons playing with torn labrums. Your comparing apples and oranges here. And something tells me the "*****" that Durant referred to Dwight as was less about pain tolerance and more about being a mentally soft "teddy bear" who loves to throw elbows but wants to avoid confrontation at all costs after he does.
Your selling short the extent of Dwights injuries, especially if you're limiting to just a torn labrum.

You might be right on the 2nd point tho.

You're right! The theme is people are hater's and won't let stuff go.

Look, the dude has played some top notch ball since he's been in Houston and he's pretty much kept his mouth shut. He had a few years of bad pub no matter what he does people won't let go of that.

I am sick of the "laker greats" piling on, which now just sounds like crying, and this KD shite is just stupid. He doesn't need to do anything but keep balling period. We don't need a suspension we need him on the court.

we are only a few years removed from Dwight being nearly as good as Durant is, and probably as impactful, before he hurt his back, he was a total beast dude. And he is still a top 7-8 player.

lol dwight was never anything special imo. But dwight sure as hell was never nearly as good as durant. unless u mean like dwights prime vs like durants rookie or second year or something

Incorrect. Dwight could've probably been MVP AT LEAST one of his dominant years in Orlando.

People hate him now and I think he's generally regressed but for a period of 3 or so years he was a top 5, if not top 3 NBA talent.

He was honestly that damn good.

Dwight wants to be taken seriously he needs to lay someone out. Take the suspension or the tech but lay someone out for talking **** about you. Show people in the league not to f with you. Dwight could of ran the league as a big.

Some people can tune trash talk out and others cannot. Of course, because there is an aspect to the game that doesn't have to do necessarily with pure basketball, like mental aspects, players will try and do try to take an advantage any way possible. That is where you see some guys fade under pressure and others don't. Its good you could tune it out but that doesn't happen to everyone. I'm not sure if I'm against it or for it, because at the end of the day you would like it to be about who is the better basketball player. The fact is that it exists and players have to be mentally ready for it.

This. If Dwight laughs it off, he's a puss that won't fight back. If he swings at an injured player, he's a cheap monster.

Why don't one of you guys put up a $20 million fight purse up for an offseason boxing match between these two? Because I guarantee KD won't be calling him that anymore. You think he's a *****? Prove it. Otherwise, shut your mouth.

No. It'd be embarrassing and hurt the team. The only thing in this situation worse then calling someone a ***** who shouldn't retaliate is for the guy to retaliate. This is the NBA, where guys make literally millions of dollars, not the mean streets of suburban Anytown where the thug life earns you literally hundreds (if that).

Are you ****ing serious?

Do you know how many 3 time or more DPOY there have been?? TWO IN THIRTY ONE YEARS

Ben Wallace (3)
Dikembe Mutombo (4)

Dwight in 300 and 400 less games has already out scored both in career points, he is out rebounding them on a rebounds per game basis, and is killing them both in scoring efficiency.

He has the credentials of 2 of the greatest defenders ever defensively and is dominating them offensively.

At 28 he is not far off some great players like Pau gasol, Mchale, Webber, and Sheed in scoring while playing much better defense and rebounding much better.

But he is nothing special right?

When guys like Demarcus Cousins or Ron Artest can't control their emotions and get baited and retaliate against people we call them mentally weak and say they need to get their **** together before they can be taken seriously. When Dwight doesn't retaliate some people call them soft. The guy can't win.

Kobe knows he has no shot at the playoffs this year and fouls Dwight around the basket which leads to Dwight swinging some elbows to fend him off because the refs aren't calling it. Somehow this makes Dwight "soft" in the eyes of Kobe. If Kobe would have stolen the ball, no telling what Kobe and some fans would've called Dwight. I guess short of cold cocking him, nothing Dwight coulda done would have led to a different reaction. Again, the guy can't win.

It reminds me of the Dave Chapelle skit When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong. I can see Dwight punching out KD, getting suspended, losing a bunch of money, the Rockets miss the playoffs, teammates and fans and coaches turn on him, he gets traded to a bottom level team…

But hey, then Lakers fans and Rockets haters would laugh because he "did it to himself". You people are clueless .

Seems to me most people here are missing the point of trash talking. The point is to unsettle your opponent using words. So you pick the words you think will most likely irritate your opponent and get them off their game.

I think reading into it any more then that is overblowing this altercation.

As for the nicest guy in the NBA thing with Durant. I guarantee it was some marketing person who came up with the idea for the commercial. Durant isn't going to turn down the money they are giving him to uphold an image. Just like he isn't going to be a certain way just because of a commercial someone else is paying him to do.

Nobody is saying Dwight should have ***** slapped him. We're saying he is a *****, the guys who have been around him since he has been in the league seem to recognize that and have no qualms spitting that right in his face. Not saying Dwight should go slug Durant, but he should have never let his rep becomes what it has in the first place. This is a sentiment that has built up around the league over time. He is a big teddy bear, a monstrous force who probably watches cartoons and cries when he breaks a finger nail. The giant kid who let little munchkins call him fat in grade school and told the teacher on them instead of shutting them up himself.

And his ***** rep isn't about not fighting, its his personality, running away from a proven champ and one of the most storied franchises in sports because Kobe was too strict for him, the waah waah stories he tells the media thereafter. The sheistyness behind the whole SVG saga and trying to justify his actions which were pretty much unjustifiable (I mean just STFU at that point, damn), his need to be loved by everyone and anyone and the little pouty face he puts on when he's not. The tendency to throw monster elbows at someones face and then looks toward the ref with this stupid confused look on his face when the guy goes back at him.

When Dwight saw the ship going down with an ******* at the helm he left and gets vilified. That guy just can't win. He doesn't fight back with a scowl on his face? What a puss!
