Dwight Howard Reacts to 12-year-Old Son Calling Him ‘Deadbeat Dad’

Dwight Howard has reacted to his 12 year old son calling him a “deadbeat dad.” The Lakers are back in La and are still looking for an oportunity to have their title parade. They looked very good in this season’s NBA playoffs and it was really cool to see them work together as a team. Sadly, it looks like they might not get to celebrate it with the city for awhile.

The NBA season was definitely very different than what we are used to seeing. LeBron James talked about how different it was to see themselves play in a bubble. Take a look at what he had to say about it.

“I am here for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to compete for a championship,” James said. “That was my mindset once I entered the bubble, once I entered the quarantine process the first two days. And then right from my first practice my mindset was to, if I’m going to be here, make the most of it and see what you can do and lock in on what the main thing is. And the main thing was for us to finish the season and compete for a championship.”

“So that’s just been my mindset throughout these — I don’t even know how many days it is, whatever how many days it is, it feels like five years so it really doesn’t matter. I’ve been as locked in as I’ve ever been in my career.”

But now some interetesting news has come out about Dwight Howard. He responded to his son calling him a deadbeat dad.

“I’m not the person to get online or go through the media and bash anybody. The only thing I will address is the issue of anybody thinking I’m a deadbeat father. Currently, I have a child with me now. My son lives with me. There’s no way I could be a deadbeat dad if I have a son that lives with me. The situation with my other son, it’s unfortunate that a lot of things have been made public.”

“Unfortunately, I haven’t [spoken to Braylon]. It’s a lot of things that are going on, but it’s personal. I’d rather keep that side out. No matter what is going on, I love my son. I would never disrespect his mom. One day, we’ll be able to get past this toxicity and realize that we’re living in a day now where they’re kill off a lot of our Black men. And I don’t want anything to ever happen to my son. He’s too precious. His voice is great. He has a great mind.”
