Wednesday night in New York the Orlando Magic are visiting the Knicks and superstar center Dwight Howard is full of energy.
In Orlando’s locker room before the game, Howard was loudly mocking Anthony Johnson. Specifically, his age. Dwight kept yelling how AJ is the oldest player in the NBA.
Johnson (born October 2, 1974), while this was going on, was eating pizza, using the locker room seat as a table, with his back to Howard.
“He saw the real Joe Louis fight!” declared Howard.
“You’re going to make me come over there,” threatened Johnson, still sitting down eating with his back turned to Howard and everyone else. “Don’t make me come over there.”
“Oldest player in the league! Oldest player in the league!” responded a non-fearful Howard.
This was all in fun, of course. Though, I didn’t see Johnson laughing. He probably was, on the inside. Hopefully.
Dwight’s pumped. Let’s see how he performs in MSG this evening.
