Dwight Howard Says He Never Waffled On Houston

Dwight-Howard-Rockets_225452HOUSTON – Everywhere you turn in Houston, there’s no mistaking the fact that Dwight Howard has officially arrived.

His Godzilla-sized likeness is plastered on a four-story tall poster just outside the Toyota Center that reads “Legacy of Bigs,” with Howard overlooking the likes of Yao Ming, Hakeem Olajuwon, Ralph Sampson, Elvin Hayes, and Moses Malone. The real-life version of Howard has made plenty of appearances, too, none more unexpected than his visit with teammate Chandler Parsons to a local high school football game late last week that sent the locals into a frenzy.

But when it comes to the path that brought him here, the July 5 announcement that he had decided to leave the Los Angeles Lakers and an extra $30 million behind in Los Angeles, he wants to make one thing clear that wasn’t on that day: he never waffled.
