Dwight Howard: ‘I Don’t Want To Talk About The Lakers’

Dwight Howard RocketsWith 34 games already in the books for the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2013-14 NBA season, the stench of the Dwight Howard era in Los Angeles is nothing more than a bad memory.

Although Howard and the Lakers have moved on, the storied franchise must play the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night at the Toyota Center with the same old questions bound to be asked once again.

Howard got his first taste of things to come on Tuesday fielding his first questions about the Lakers since his old team beat the Rockets in dramatic fashion back on Nov. 7. Steve Blake hit a game-winning shot over Howard in their first meeting, leaving the superstar center saying the same things he would following losses with the Lakers last season.

Once asked about his former team, Howard immediately pretended to fall asleep, but then woke up and said that he didn’t want to talk about the Lakers even though they had to play them on Wednesday via CSNHouston.com:

It’ll be interesting to see how the second matchup of the season between these two teams pans out with the Lakers dealing with so many injuries. The Rockets will be heavily favored in this game, but the Lakers might be able to pull something together in order to go 2-0 against Howard this season before he returns to Staples Center on Feb. 19.
