Howard spent time talking to the victims families and friends at the vigil. While Howard isn’t always the most beloved NBA athlete he does a lot off the court, specifically with his BreatheAgain movement. In the video below Howard says he was motivated to go to the vigil because he wanted to show his support and to show people it’s time for change. On why he attended the vigil: “It hurt to see the things that happened in Charleston. It just broke my heart, I just felt like it could have been me, it could have been my friends, it could have been my pastor, it could have been anybody. I wanted to be there to show my support and that we need change in our society” –Howard
On the day that Dwight Howard was suspended for a game without pay for collecting his fourth flagrant foul of the postseason, Andrew Bogut took a parting shot at the Houston center. “There was some physicality there (with Houston), like any playoff series, but the Memphis series was more physical,” Bogut said after Friday’s practice. “This was more about ducking and weaving and getting out of the way of aired fists and elbows.”
The NBA’s review of Dwight Howard’s contact with Andrew Bogut concluded that it did not rise to the level of excessive because Howard was trying to free himself from a tie-up with Bogut, president of basketball operations Rod Thorn told CBSSports.com Tuesday. “It was a very close call as far as I’m concerned,” Thorn said. “As Bogut is holding his arm down, Howard tries to extricate his arm. He doesn’t hit him with his elbow, by the way. He hits him with the back of his hand, maybe a touch of the wrist. To me, it was unnecessary, but I didn’t think it was excessive.”

Marc Stein: The offensive rebound you grabbed yesterday, sneaking inside, outfoxing Dwight to the ball… How proud are you of that? Stephen Curry: Probably my best rebound to date. Just the right place at the right time. He didn’t see me coming in. Got the body on him, I was just able to grab it with one hand… In the playoffs, random stuff like that happens, and you just want to try to impact the game in any way you can.
“Sometimes I want to crack open a beer and get a courtside seat,” Warriors center Andrew Bogut said of the Curry-Harden fireworks. “Because these two guys, they’re the two best basketball players in the world. “Steph knocks down a big shot and then we’ve got to come down and try to stop James, and he knocks down a big shot. … A lot of times I get caught watching, going crazy with the shots that he makes. “It’s an honor to be his teammate.”
