Dwight Howard believes he should’ve won “Defensive Player of the Year”

Latest Dwight Howard musings, Howard feels he should’ve won “Defensive Player of the Year” last season.

“I thought I should have won it last year, to be honest with you,” Howard told reporters after practice Monday. “I was a little bit upset about that.” […]

“I felt like I did my job to win it. I also feel like I didn’t because of the whole situation,” Howard said, referring to the uncertainty surrounding his future with the Magic and the distraction it became. “That played a factor in it.”

I hope that will serve as motivation for this year with the Lakers. In addition to his offensive game stepping up, there will be lots of opportunties to show why he was robbed last season. I personally thought it should’ve gone to Serge Ibaka.

Another interesting tidbit that came out, Dwight claims to have just had his first drink over the summer after being traded to the Lakers. A shot of Ciroc… I mean, do we care??  I bet Diddy is pleased!
