Metta World Peace Thought Dwight Howard Joked Around Too Much

by May 13, 2013

According to Metta World Peace, the constant goofing around done by Dwight Howard was tough for him to accept when they first became teammates. MWP says he eventually grew to embrace Dwight’s playful nature. Per ABC 7 (via Lakers Nation): “At first it did. When I first met Dwight in our first practices together and our first games in the regular season I was like, ‘he’s joking a little bit too much.’ But then I decided not to judge people and I decided to work with my teammates — so as I got into more games with Dwight — I did see him working really hard, blocking shots, playing with a back injury, but he was still playing hard. So then I said, ‘you know what, we just have to work with what we have.’ But at first, it was a little bit frustrating.”
