Dwight Howard Wants To ‘Shut People’s Mouths’ Next Season

Dwight Howard thinks his opportunity with the Charlotte Hornets will allow him to “shut people’s mouths” next season.

In an interview with ESPN, Dwight said he can have a bounce-back season playing for Steve Clifford, who won’t “break my spirit.”

“Cliff’s going to push me, but he’s not going to ever be one of those guys who I would say would break my spirit. He really believes in me.


“Throughout all the mess that has happened the last couple of years, this is a great opportunity for me to prove to myself that I know exactly who I am — to just shut people’s mouths.”
