Oscar Robertson to Dwight Howard: “Keep your mouth shut and play basketball…”
Apparently, NBA fans are not the only one’s growing weary over all the comments and wavering positions Dwight Howard has offered about being traded. During an interview with Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Bianchi (on Bianchi’s Open Mike‘ radio show today), NBA Legend Oscar Robertson 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 basketball players to ever lace up a pair of Chuck Taylors. The NBA Trade Deadline is March 15th, but with the All Star 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.
