3. Former Laker Shaquille O’Neal has been highly critical of Howard throughout the season.
Omg…. @Shaq was right about @DwightHoward. I guess that’s why only one of them will have a jersey in the staples center rafters!

4. Dwight Howard gave up $30 million and the chance to be in the pantheon of Laker/NBA greats.
.@DwightHoward You were a disappointment throughout the entire Laker season and we stuck by you. You had a chance to be more than great.

5. Dwight Howard’s free throw shooting is comparable to his well-documented indecisiveness.
He shoots free throws just like he makes up his mind.
