Howard Picks Strange Time to Make Demands

Howard Picks Strange Time to Make Demands

Pretty good get, FOX Sports Wisconsin's Paul Imig, scoring an exclusive interview with Orlando Magic All-Star Dwight Howard following his team's victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, complaining about how he wants the ball more late in games.

Really weird timing, Orlando Magic All-Star Dwight Howard, in complaining about not getting the ball enough late in contests after your team put together a fantastic fourth quarter comeback (including a 16-0 run) on the road to take down the Bucks. Especially after you played the entire second half and missed six of nine shots. But there Howard was, talking exclusively to Imig, about how he'd like the ball more late:

"I do want the ball more in the fourth quarter," a frustrated Howard told FOX Sports exclusively after the game. I want to become a closer. The only way you get there is by getting the ball and have coach have the confidence in giving me the ball. That's how Kobe (Bryant) and the rest of the great fourth-quarter players got that way. It's trial and error. When Kobe first got in the league, it took him a while to become the killer he is in the fourth quarter now. Coach just needs to have confidence in me."


Interesting timing, thought process, and hero, Dwight Howard.
