Howard: ‘I’ve never quit on my team’
(Dwight) Howard made a case for returning next season on Saturday. The 6-foot-11 center, who was accused of quitting by TNT analyst Charles Barkely after scoring eight points with eight rebounds in a 96-80 loss to the New York Knicks on Thursday night, denied Barkley’s allegation after Saturday’s win.
“But I want everyone to know I’ve never quit on my team,” Howard told Salters after the game. “(I) know I’ve had some bad games, (but) I’ll never quit on my team. Everybody needs to know that.”
