Dwight Howard doesn’t like being called a bitch — and was physically restrained when he got into it with a Lakers fans after the game Sunday night. TMZ Sports has footage in which you can hear a man shouting obscenities at Howard after the Lakers beat the Hawks 109-94 at Staples Center. At one point the man — who we’re told appeared to be in his 20s — says, “You’re a bitch!” Dwight — who was on the way to the locker room — stopped in his tracks and jawed back at the heckler, “Come back here and say it.”
When asked about the different dynamic Howard has brought to the Hawks so far this season, head coach Mike Budenholzer praised the big man. “Dwight is very unique,” Budenholzer said. “His physical gifts and attributes give our whole group a greater physicality. We’re rebounding the ball a lot better. I think we’ve been a very good defensive team and he allows us to maintain that and hopefully maybe even be better. Offensively, I think the group is adjusting to him and what he can do and what he can create kind of with that same physical presence on the offensive end.”
