NBA | Shaq Says Dwight Howard Wasn’t Ready For That Los Angeles Laker Life


Former LA Lakers and NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal spoke about the shocking choice Dwight Howard made, leaving the Lakers and becoming a Houston Rocket.

O’Neal said on ESPN:

“It was expected. We’ve all been in L.A., and not a whole lot of people can handle being under the bright lights. Everybody wants to do it, but when you get there, there are certain pressures. I think it was a safe move for him to go to a little town like Houston. That’s right, little town. I said it.”

He may have a point if you think of all the big men that left their print with the Lakers. I can only think of one in Houston: Hakeem Olajuwon.
