Stephen A. Smith is giving Dwight Howard a wake up call.
In a recent interview with Complex, Dwight Howard caused a stir when he confidently claimed that he was better in his prime than two-time MVP Joki?, asserting that he would outperform him “all day, every day.”
Howard emphasized that although Joki? is recognized for his scoring abilities and offensive skills, he himself achieved impressive feats such as recording 38 and 20 points, 45 rebounds and 18 points, and consistently dominating the game without relying on three-pointers.
Unlike Joki?, Howard explained that he primarily relied on lobs rather than post-up attempts. Howard also acknowledged that he played during a different era, implying that the style of play may have varied between their respective primes.
Stephen A. Smith, in response to Howard’s statement, took a more critical stance, advising him to “stay off the weed!”
However, Smith clarified that he is a fan of Howard and proceeded to outline Howard’s notable accomplishments throughout his career.
Disagreeing with Smith’s criticism, Kendrick Perkins expressed his admiration for Howard, considering him to be an exceptional player despite differing opinions.
