BSO- “There’s no need to live in the future. I’m not a guy that lives in the future. The only moment that matters is right now, what we accomplish as a team. It starts with training camp. We just have to work on getting better every day.”
“There’s no need for me to focus on anything that’s going to happen next summer. My job is to focus on how I can help this team be the best team in the NBA and win a championship.”
There's nothing better than an athlete that doesn't realize he's saying so much more than what he's actually saying. Nothing better than a athlete that basically writes the jokes for you. Could there be a better example of that than Dwight Howard saying that he "doesn't live in the future"? You don't say Dwight? You mean to tell me it wasn't a carefully calculated plan to demand a trade midseason then sign onto to play another year with the same team, then demand a trade the next season too? You mean to tell me that you didn't weigh the pros and cons when you decided to sign with the Lakers and hated that decision no more than 5 minutes later? You mean to tell me all those times you spread your seed in strange women you weren't thinking what might come of it 9 months later? You mean to tell me that fathering a bakers dozen children by an actual dozen women wasn't in the family plan? Say it ain't so Dwight, say it ain't so! In a sport whose athletes constantly go broke just years after they retire with tens of millions in their bank account, it's not an exaggeration to say that Dwight Howard is the most frivolous player in league history. Of course he doesn't live in the future, he can barely digest the now.
