Dwight Howard documentary is coming

Because apparently you can’t get enough, a Dwight Howard documentary is coming

AP
Haven’t had your fill of Dwight Howard drama yet?

I’m kidding. I know we all have. We’re all weary of him and his off-the-court spectacle, weary of the discussion of how he got to Houston (or left Los Angeles, if you prefer). We’re sick of the endless image battle — we just want to see him play basketball and not talk about the rest of it.

But there is more behind-the-scenes Dwight Howard drama coming.

He is getting his own documentary, reports Sara Eckert at CSNHouston.com.

Dwight Howard has teamed with EPIX to offer an exclusive look into his life and path to becoming a megastar. A big part of the original documentary, EPIX Presents Dwight Howard: In the Moment, includes footage of Howard during his recruitment and decision to come to Houston, so that should be of particular interest to Rockets fans. It will also retrace his youth and career path and will help answer the question, ‘who is the real Dwight Howard?’

“The 2013/14 season is a pivotal year in my professional career,” Howard said. “I am excited about being a Houston Rocket and grateful for the opportunity to be seen in an in-depth manner. I am happy to be working with the EPIX team, including award-winning documentarian, Ross Greenburg.”

I think we can all agree that Howard is right about something — this is a pivotal year in his career.

For the past couple seasons he has worked to get out of situations he didn’t like in a rather awkward fashion, which when combined with a legitimate injury that knocked his game back a couple of steps made Howard easy to dislike.

It’s really simple now for Howard — he has to win in Houston. He made the right basketball move, but he has been a guy that shrunk in the face of adversity. Well, there is going to be adversity in making this all work in Houston and he has to fight through it. There is no way out now, this is it.

I’ll make this as plain as I can: The best way to solve image issues is just to win. Go ask Kobe Bryant or LeBron James about it. Howard is never going to be universally loved but he can flip his image with a lot of people by simply playing up to his potential and winning games. And eventually winning a lot of playoff games.

The documentary could be interesting if we get to see Howard struggle with the coming adversity. But if this is all just him playing video games and acting like he doesn’t have a care in the world, then I’ve got better things to do with my time.

For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

What are they going to name it? Doing Play? Doing Drama?
Vitti uttered three words that surely applies to how Bryant made two free throws on one leg, walked off the court on his own and processed his rehabilitation plan amid the pain, frustration and tears.

“That’s really cool.”

And this is where I went around the locker room with a box score telling everyone how many times Kobe carried my sorry a** through the regular season.

Sounds to me like something that could turn even more people off to him if not done right. A look inside at a diva, a delusional man-child that doesn't get why he's perceived the way he is and just wants to be a big kid and have fun.

I just want to see the part where he waves the stat sheet around in the locker room and makes fun of the Beard's shot attempts behind his back.

Ehhhh shouldn't he accomplish something before we see a documentary on him? Shouldn't there be a happy ending where he actually does something notable in his career? Unless this is a negative documentary about how he's an overrated clown.

What's the "tag line" in the title........ "Clank"?

technical, not an ejection. Still a punk though.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

I heard that they got into legal issues because there is already a movie made called Diary of a wimpy kid.

I read he got 2 Ts and an ejection from a CL member saying you want to hear something funny? on Gameday a couple of days ago. It has to be true. :man1:

I did too. We all know you can't put anything that isn't true on the CL. :jam2:
