Josh Howard sure is carving out quite the niche here at LBS. Not only did he freely admit to smoking herb as an NBA player, but he also was out partying while his team was losing in the playoffs, and he recently got busted for speeding in his hometown. The latest knock against Howard comes courtesy of my boy HG at You Been Blinded who spotted Josh Howard saying some pretty boneheaded, negative things about the National Anthem. This was from the Allen Iverson Celebrity Football Game back in July. Fast forward to the 1:43 mark.
I’m pretty surprised that the video made its way from You Been Blinded to the Dallas Morning News where Mark Cuban made a comment, and then to ESPN a day later. Sure is an indication that the mainstream media isn’t afraid of stories blogs find. Additionally, I can’t believe how dumb Josh Howard is. Even if he does feel that way, who the heck says so publicly? And Mark Cuban continually defending him? Maybe it’s time he moved on considering Josh Howard isn’t that good as a player.
