One Q, One A

VIBE: LeBron James ruffled some feathers by opting to play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat. Thoughts?

Dwight Howard: I was cool with it until I saw all the interviews and the concert [Ed. Note: He means the July press conference and welcoming party at American Airlines Arena]. What they were saying at the press conference kind of pissed me off. It’s like, okay now y’all forgetting about the teams y’all gotta play against. It pissed a lot of people off. Everybody’s gonna be gunning for them after those interviews. I’m the type of person that feels humility is always the best route. I’ma be juiced up for the season, but I’ma definitely be ready to go [against Miami]. —Bonsu Thompson
