Dwight Howard Speaks After Making Decision

Dwight Howard made his decision, finally. A lot of Laker fans are mad, but he handled the end of his free agency well. He flew to L.A. just to tell Mitch Kupchak that he was going to sign with the Houston Rockets. I can definitely respect that. Howard also sent out a tweet, which you can see here:

“I’ve decided to become a member of the Houston Rockets. I feel its the best place for me and I am excited about joining the Rockets and I’m looking forward to a great season. I want to thank the fans in Los Angeles and wish them the best.”

Mike Bresnahan also had some tweets with quotes from Dwight Howard.

Dave McMenamin had a quote, as well.

Alex Kennedy from HoopsWorld was able to talk to Howard on the phone shortly after he made his decision. You can find the conversation here.
