Ice Cube has joined the bandwagon of critics who are happy to see Dwight Howard leave Tinseltown, TMZ reports. The NBA All-Star center officially left the Los Angeles Lakers to sign with the Houston Rockets last week.
The N.W.A alum blasted Howard during a live performance at the Greek Theater in L.A. over the weekend.
“F**k Dwight Howard, godda*mit. we don’t need no punk ass motherf**kers on our team. We don’t give a f*ck about a Dwight Coward. We don’t need no b*tches on our team, homie. He don’t deserve to go up on that god*am wall. So, I predict tonight Kobe will win another championship before Dwight Howard ever sniffs one.”
After the rant, he told the approving crowd, “I’m glad I got that off my chest” and continued the show. Cube isn’t the only person to go off on Howard.
Shaquille O’Neal told USA TODAY Sports’ Nate Ryan that he was expecting Howard to make the move:
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s took to Facebook to share his thoughts:
Jabbar’s words aren’t as harsh as most, but certainly they certainly weren’t meant to be complementary. Let’s hope things work out in that “little town” in Texas.
