Dwight Howard Is “Too Nice” According To Shaq

Shaq criticizes Dwight Howard.

Dwight Howard and Shaq faced off in an All-Star game.

Dwight Howard’s career seems to be centered around sort of controversy. Whether it is getting his coach fired down in Orlando, swirling rumors around being traded, and a poor season in LA, Dwight Howard can not escape the spotlight.

Is it his fault or is it just by chance? NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal seems to agree with the former. In an interview with ESPNLA Shaq had the following to say

“Im a connoisseur of giggling and playing and all that … but when I cross that line I’m ready to tear your face off. … He’s just too nice. If I was him I would get into the same mood I was in.”

Shaq played with a mean streak, which is what Dwight Howard needs to do.

Shaq dominates on the court.

“All the giggling and smiling (is) too much. The fact that he’s the so-called best big man in the league and doesn’t get doubled every time, that’s telling me something. That’s telling me teams respect him but they don’t fear him.”

Strong words coming from Howard’s predecessor. But, are they fair? After taking it lightly in the playoffs and an overall lackluster season, while participating in plenty of off the court activities, I would estimate that Shaq is not too far off.
