Vince Carter Calls Dwight Howard the ‘Biggest Crybaby’

by November 21, 2013

The Dallas Mavericks had a great time at Dwight Howard’s expense last night — their fans taunted and rattled the big fella, owner Mark Cuban took the obligatory shots after the comeback win, and Vince Carter called Howard out for being a “crybaby”. Per ESPN: “Carter interrupted Howard’s one-sided discussion with an official to loudly and repeatedly tell the Rockets center that he was ‘the biggest crybaby I know.’ Carter, an Orlando resident who has played countless summer pickup games with Howard and spent a season and change as his teammate with the Magic, said after the game that they’re buddies. But Carter certainly didn’t back off his comment. ‘All the time,’ Carter said of Howard’s whining to officials. ‘He always talks about how I’m a crybaby. I was like, ‘Yo, you’re the biggest crybaby I know.’ And then later, he’s like, ‘Yo, why’d you say that to me?’ But I know Dwight. It’s all good, but he is [a crybaby]. I mean, he takes a lot of punishment, but I’m like, ‘Yo, c’mon Dwight, c’mon. You elbowed, you’re sitting in the paint the entire time. What are you whining about?’ He told me to stop crying. I was like, ‘What? Are you serious?'”
