Dwight Howard Coming Away From This Interview Looking Like A Respectable Human Makes Me Hate Him More
If I didn't know any better this video would lead me to be believe that Dwight Howard was a hard working, misunderstood player that repeatedly finds myself in unfortunate circumstances. That's why it is the perfect representation of why everyone hates Dwight Howard. Not because he can magically pull off a pink blazer better than the best man at a gay wedding, but because he can get behind a microphone and make himself sound like a victim when his actions are worthy of nearly every criticism that has ever been thrown his way. The guy has talked his way out of raising a dozen children by ten different women, of course he can talk his way out of a 3-man interrogation that was designed to make him look half decent. He's managed to continue to convince team after team to pay him ridiculously inflated salaries despite being an obvious cancer in the locker room, of course he can successfully lend lip service to a high level of interest that clearly doesn't exist on the court. You can't listen to a single thing Dwight Howard has to say because none of it is rooted in truth, and all of it is seems incredibly believable.
Dwight Howard isn't hurt by the things people say about him because people that are ONLY out for their own self interests don't feel emotions. Dwight Howard doesn't feel shame or guilt over his mistakes, because he's actually convinced himself that he's done nothing wrong. I would love to believe that the amiable, engaging Dwight Howard that we saw in this video is the real Dwight Howard, but that's just the Dwight Howard he wants you to see. Actions speak louder than words, and Dwight Howard's actions over the course of career say that his words are that of a sociopath.
