Dwight Howard said that he’s coming to the Hawks with a “different mentality.”
“I want to do whatever I can to bring a championship home,” he said. “I know it’s not going to be easy. I’ve worked extremely hard this summer, every summer. I’m very motivated. I’m really [ticked] off about last season. I’m looking forward to coming back with a different mentality.” The idea of Howard returning to his former glory upon coming home is a nice story, but it’s hard to imagine after his time in Houston ended so acrimoniously. That said, Howard is a nice fit next to Paul Milsap in the Hawks’ front court, and the team boasts a solid roster, so an extended playoff run isn’t out of the question.
