The Los Angeles Lakers will go to Orlando, Florida, without Avery Bradley. It was a big loss for the team, but now they got Dwight Howard on board and he is about to give his best to win. The great Dwight Howard will not only join his team, but he will also donate his salary.
Bradley’s final word is related to his efforts in the current protests and the health problems his son has. Howard shared the same thoughts about the protests against racial injustice. He has been one of the most vocal NBA players about the concerns over the season resumption. The racial injustice issues and the tough time his family faced had a big impact on his decision. Well, he made a final decision and now he will be playing with his team.
“Basketball will most likely resume and I feel like we have an opportunity, the Lakers do, of winning the title this year,” Howard said recently.
Dwight Howard donates his salary
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Howard will join the Lakers when the season resumes this month. Although Howard’s status was considered uncertain, Howard was considered more likely to join the Lakers than Bradley.
Howard had a huge impact on the Lakers which means he made the best decision. He came to LA last August after DeMarcus Cousins tore his ACL. He wanted to improve his skills and lead the team to a win.
Howard likes his role on the floor and he has a good impact off of it. He is definitely a fan favorite.
“I have an initiative that I’m restarting … It’s called ‘Breathe Again’ and during my time in the bubble, I will use that time to talk about ‘Breathe Again’ and I’m going to use my salary,” Howard said. “I will use the paychecks that I will be getting when I’m down in the bubble to help push this ‘Breathe Again.’”
In his 19.2 minutes per game this season, the Laker was averaging 7.5 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks. LA needs these numbers inside the bubble, and the situation is more than tense right now.
