Since leaving Los Angeles for Houston, NBA star Dwight Howard has been getting backlash from Lakers fans… including hip-hop legend, Ice Cube.
While performing at the Kings of the Mic Tour on Sunday evening (July 8), the rapper shared his opinion on Howard’s decision to leave.
“F*** Dwight Howard, goddamn it,” Cube said, according to HipHopDX. “We love LA! We don’t need no punk-ass motherf***ers on our team. We don’t give a f*** about a Dwight Coward. We don’t need no bitches on our team, homie. You don’t deserve to go up on that goddamn wall. So, I predict tonight Kobe [Bryant] will win another championship before Dwight Howard ever sniffs one.”
“Right now, I keep Andrew Bynum,” he said during an appearance on ESPN’s “First Take.” “Dwight, you have to want it, man. You have to come and want to be a part of the legacy. You got to want to have your jersey up on that wall.”
Apparently, Howard didn’t want it, whether that was the pressure of carrying the Lakers dynasty into the future, or playing alongside Kobe Bryant for another couple of years.
Dwight took to Twitter Friday evening (July 5), announcing his decision to join the Houston Rockets.
