Howard’s father is a critic of son and Lakers

MIAMI — For the second time this week, Dwight Howard found himself responding to someone else’s unwanted opinion about his situation with the Los Angeles Lakers.

 

Only this time, it was Howard’s father that prompted the discussion.

 

“I’m not going to get into it,” Howard said after practice in Miami on Saturday when asked about the recent comments of his father, Dwight Howard Sr., dissecting the relationship triangle between the Lakers’ center, coach Mike D’Antoni and guard Kobe Bryant.

 

“My dad is a grown man. If that’s how he feels, then we’ll leave it at that. I’m not going to get into it.”

 

Howard Sr. told the Atlanta Journal Constitution he was disappointed with the way Bryant publicly criticized his son, and that D’Antoni didn’t do anything to curtail it.
