When I first came to the team, Javier and I said similar things: Yo, you and Shaq have something to do with Shaq? He said: brother, I really dont know whats going on. Hes always talking about us! I also responded: yes, brother, he is such a crazy man! Forget it. Dont talk about him. Then we all laughed
Howard said he absolutely respects ONeal, but he doesnt intend to please sharks because its unnecessary and impossible: I respect his achievements, I love what hes done in sports, and I hope we can play again on the court to end this debate. But it made me realize that you cant please everyone. Not everyone will be satisfied with your life or what you do.
Howard was an important rotation member of the Lakers last season, and fans loved to talk about his tussle with Jokic in the Western Conference finals. Next season he will switch to 76ers as a substitute for enbid.
