Following a sound drubbing in the Western Conference finals at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, Dwight Howard chose to remain positive.
Despite a truly unremarkable five games in which he averaged 14 points, Howard insisted that he would remain determined. He also insisted that he was a champion.
ďItís tough, but I wonít stop fighting,Ē Howard told CBS Sports. ďIím going to continue to push myself to the limit and remember that, no matter how the season ends, Iím still a champion. And I wonít let anyone tell me anything different.Ē
Hereís the problem with that statement. There have been many players who have won NBA championships since 1947. Those players are champions. Dwight Howard has never won an NBA championship. Dwight Howard is not a champion. Dwight Howard is almost a champion.
He wants to be a champion. He has the talent and ability and desire to be a champion. But he isnít a champion. Because he lost.
Dwight Howard probably believes heís a doctor too. If Dwight Howard says heís a doctor, donít believe him. He isnít a doctor.http://ftw.usatoday.com/2015/05/dwight-howard-says-hes-still-a-champion-even-though-he-clearly-isnt
