Tom Moore: #Sixers center Dwight Howard: ‘I’ve never felt better throughout my career … I feel I can play four or five more years at a very dominant level. I know I’m 34 going on 35, but I can still do whatever it takes to win.’ #76ers #NBA
Kenyon Martin: I’m not sure if I could play in today’s NBA. When I watch NBA games now and see some of the calls — and some of the non-calls that these guys complain about — I’m blown away. I always tell people, “I never could’ve played in this generation.” I didn’t know how to flop or how to not play defense. I never backed down from anyone and I played hard defense on every possession of every game. I probably would’ve adapted to the shooting and stuff, but as far as my style of play, this is who I am. I’m not compromising that for nobody. People always told me that I was in the wrong generation, that I would’ve fit right in if I played in the ‘80s or ‘90s.
Kenyon Martin: When I first got the league, I had to learn how to concede two points to my opponent (like if I picked up an early foul or was in foul trouble). I had a hard time with that; that was something I had to learn. Now, a lot of these guys don’t seem to care very much on the defensive end. They see a certain guy coming toward the basket and they move out of the way. Now, refs will call a flagrant foul for something that would’ve just been a foul 10-15 years ago. If I played in today’s NBA, I would probably lead the league in ejections!
