Houston Rockets superstar center Dwight Howard hasn’t looked like his old, explosive self the last two seasons.
Per the Houston Chronicle:
“When you have a serious injury – the back injury I suffered, it takes time to heal,” Howard said. “I don’t think a lot of people understood how serious the injury was. It was something that could have been career-ending. I decided to come back and play earlier than I was supposed to and I suffered a lot because of that.
“I am healthier now. I had a really good summer on training and I am just looking forward to this season.”
“I knew that after the back surgery that some of my explosiveness and speed and agility had slowed down,” Howard said. “So I spent a lot of time this summer doing a lot of those things that could help the process.”
