Lakers News: Rick Fox Thinks Dwight Howard Has Loser’s Mentality

Dwight HowardFormer Los Angeles Laker Rick Fox did an interview on 710 ESPN’s radio show ‘Max & Marcellus’ on Monday afternoon. In that exchange, Fox gave some very critical comments about starting Lakers center Dwight Howard and his approach to the game of basketball this season after hearing of Dwight’s recent issues about not getting enough touches.

“That’s a loser mentality,” Fox said in reference to Dwight’s complaining.

Fox believes that Dwight should be focusing in other areas of basketball such as rebounding, and sacrifice for the greater good of his team as other great players have done in order to win championships.

“It’s about your own commitment to excellence in the area of team success,” Fox said. “Not so much are you going to make 100-million dollars and is your career going to be ok.”

Fox re-iterated to Max and Marcellus that Laker fans dont tolerate losing. To him, Dwight has to prove to the city of Los Angeles that he is willing to do whatever it takes to win.

“Unfortunately for him, in Los Angeles, you’ve got a legacy of great players that have shown the city what commitment looks like,” Fox said. “I’d like to see actions from him that tell me that winning is the most important thing to him, and that he wants to be a Laker.”

While Dwight Howard has recently stated that he has adjusted his mentality, it is going to be interesting to see what happens going forward with his actions on the court after all the recent drama in Laker land.
