The three stages of Dwight Howard during the journeyman phase of his career:
1. Howard joins a new team.
3. Howard departs and his teammates celebrate his exit.
Howard joining the Wizards is Step 1. So, we’re onto Step 2.
From what I’ve been told by a source, he wants to change the narrative on him, what people perceive of him.
I believe Howard wants to change perception of him.
But I’m hardly convinced he grasps how to actually do it. He’s 32-year-old and still displays immaturity and grating behavior. Habits are hard to break.
Good luck to him and Washington, though. He at least deserves a chance to back this up.
