On September 28, Beijing time, after helping the Lakers reach the Finals, Dwight Howard accepted an exclusive interview with the famous NBA reporter Shams Chalanya and answered many in-depth questions.
Charania asked: "If I told you the year you left Los Angeles, you would come back to play for the Lakers in the future, play in the Finals in Orlando, and in so many complicated situations... you were at that time. How would it feel?"
Howard said: "Unbelievable.
Chalanya asked: "I know how important the word'redemption' is to you. What does this year mean to you who redeem yourself in this sport?"
Howard said: "
Charania asked: "When you agree to join the Lakers, a common question is; Will Howard buy it? Will he accept his role? You have proven this on the road to the Finals. The worries about are unnecessary. After so long, I finally proved what I mean to you?"
Howard: "Although there were a lot of opposing voices at the time, many questioning voices were like,'Why is he saying this again? He always said this set of things, and every year he said there would be changes.' This is part of life, every year You have to change yourself, and you should grow up every year. If you stay the same, what is the meaning of your journey through this journey. This ignited a fire in my heart to do everything the team asked me to do It’s all focused. No matter what kind of player they want me to be-to be in that role. Just be yourself and show your best side to the best of my ability, without worrying about what people will say and how they feel about me. It’s like, “He’s not at his peak anymore, he doesn’t play like he used to...” or something. Winning is the only purpose, the only thing is to keep my inner peace and happiness."
Chalanya asked, "Do you think you can fight for a few more years?"
Howard said: "
