Dwight Howard Signs With the Rockets

On Imported Blog

In news that certainly shook up the whole NBA, superstar center Dwight Howard has signed with my hometown team, the Houston Rockets. Now most Rockets fan are livid. The duo of James Harden and Dwight Howard seems too good to be true, and many fans now view us as title contenders.

I'm definitely in the huge minority because I'm not happy by the trade. I didn't want Dwight Howard to come once we started pursuing him years ago, and the way we acquired him strengthened my reasons. One of the things I love most about the Rockets (all Houston teams, in fact) is that we play the game. We don't complain to the media every hour. The athletes understand their role is to win games, and that's what they attempt to do (even the Astros). Even if they're not successful, no teammates are thrown under the bus. The coach is not blamed by the players. The team quietly improves and has their mind set on their goal.

Dwight Howard, on the other hand, is the opposite. He blames his teammates and his coaches to the press. The media is notified of his every step. He got two coaches fired in less than half a year. This whole decision to come to Houston definitely supports the presence of the media in his life. If any word has described this process, it's been "saga."

Houston doesn't need players that decide to come after a "saga." They need players who want to play basketball and will do so. James Harden, a superstar signing, never created some huge drama with the Thunder. Sure he didn't want to necessarily come to the Rockets because he was traded, but he didn't completely offend the Thunder franchise after they made the deal.

The International Champions Cup (ICC) is an annual club association football friendly exhibition competition. It features club teams from Europe playing pre-season friendly matches, originally in the United States and Canada, but in the years since also in venues in China, Australia, Mexico and across Europe. The ICC was founded by Relevent Sports, a division of RSE ventures based out of northern New Jersey, a sports venture firm founded in 2012 by billionaire real estate magnate and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and Matt Higgins, a former executive with the New York Jets. It replaced the World Football Challenge, which had featured a more even distribution of European- and American-based sides.
