Dwight Howard Details the Saddest Moment of His Laker Tenure

NBA365 Productions@@BR_NBASenior Writer IIJuly 16, 2013

Dwight Howard was filled with frustration toward the end of his career with the Orlando Magic. While Orlando tried to make amends, the relationship between the two sides was hurt beyond repair. 

After a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers, Howard's future seemed to be on its upside; he was given the opportunity to play for one of the most storied franchises in the NBA alongside a proven winner in Kobe Bryant

Yet what looked so good on paper was a nightmare in reality. Dwight could not mesh with his teammates or coach, and he was criticized for it. 

After a disappointing season with the Lakers, Howard finally got his chance to choose where he wanted to be as a free agent, and he picked the Houston Rockets.

Dwight's 2012-2013 season was filled with more lows than highs, and Rachel Nichols caught up with him to discuss his saddest moment while with the Lakers. 

Is Dwight Howard too sensitive, or was he driven away?
