Oscar Robertson to Dwight Howard: “Keep your mouth shut and play basketball…”

February 23, 2012

Apparently, fans are not the only one’s growing weary over all the comments and wavering positions has offered about being traded.  During an interview with columnist Mike Bianchi (on Bianchi’s ‘ radio show today), NBA Legend weighed in on Dwight…

Robertson on Dwight: “Keep your mouth shut and play basketball… If he wants to be traded, he’s going to be traded.  Go and talk to the owners and say, ‘I want to be traded’ and keep it a secret.’  In a situation like this, he can’t win…” Robertson added.

Far be it from me to tell another man how he should handle his career…but it definitely sounds like ‘sage advice’ from one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of .  The NBA Trade Deadline is March 15th, but with the festivities taking place this weekend, expect the rumors to multiply exponentially over the next couple weeks…much to the chagrin of Mr. Robertson, and NBA fans alike.

    Good advice by Oscar. Hope Howard goes to Chicago, they would be very hard to beat then.

      You’re exactly right…but I don’t see him going there. I do, however, wish Chicago could get one more piece in order to truly challenge in the East. #UnintentionalRhymes :)
