VIDEO: Dwight Howard’s Reaction To Ejection & Mitch Kupchak

Dwight Howard JPGDwight Howard was ejected in Game 4 of the Lakers 103-82 loss to the San Antonio Spurs Sunday night. The ejection was a result of Dwight receiving his second technical of the game after complaining to the officials that a foul wasn’t called on Aron Baynes. The last thing the Lakers needed was losing yet another player, especially their best player on the floor. What did Dwight Howard have to say about his ejection after the game?

“Just frustration, there’s nothing we can do about it now…I just got to do a better job of keeping my cool. It’s very tough, you’re out there playing most of the game, I don’t want to lose, and sometimes when things don’t go your way, sometimes you react the wrong way and I just got to keep my cool.”

Head Coach Mike D’Antoni seemed more empathetic than upset about Dwight’ ejection.

“I hate it for him. He gets banged up so much in there that I’m sure he didn’t mean to, but he takes a pounding and after a while I guess his nerves are shot or whatever, but obviously we were in a deep hole anyways so I just felt bad for him.”

When Howard was being escorted off the court, TV cameras caught what many thought to be an exchange of words between Dwight Howard and Mitch Kupchak. The video is below.

When Howard was asked about it, he had only this to say.

“I don’t even remember.”

For what it’s worth, it appeared to me that Dwight turned his head to continue to voice his frustrations at the play, rather than direct anything towards Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak. For Dwight Howard and Mike D’Antoni’s reaction to the ejection, check out our video below.
