Like many other NBA players, Dwight Howard the question arose whether to resume the path of competition. Invested in the social movement that agitates the United States, the former All Star first thought of boycotting the Orlando bubble in protest. Then, the media platform that constitutes the NBA appeared to him to be an excellent vector for getting its message across. Finally, Howard will be very present with the rest of the Lakers Disney World team, as the journalist has just announced Shams Charania. Californians will therefore be deprived only of their rear Avery Bradley, recently replaced by the ghost J.R. Smith.
Good news in terms of sports for Los Angeles, since Howard is the inside with the best performance on the floor this season: 7.5 points 73.2% on shots and 7.4 rebounds in just 20 minutes of playing time. he former DPOY of the League intends to act behind the scenes for more social justice in the country. He plans to donate the full amount of his end-of-season pay (almost $ 700,000) to his association Breathe Again fighting for movement Black Lives Matter. A nice gesture that allows him to join the commitment to the purely sporting side:
When I am in the bubble, I will take this time to talk about Breathe Again and I will use my winnings, my money and the checks collected thanks to my Orlando presence to promote the Breathe Again initiative. I want to push this movement and be sure that people do not forget what is happening in our society.
