When Dwight Howard came into the league, straight out of high school, his main goal was not to follow the career path of Shaquille O’Neal, not to become the best center in a centerless league or to raise a championship banner for a struggling franchise but to “raise the name of God within the league and throughout the world.”

That actually sounds like a tougher goal than becoming the next Shaq and saving a franchise.
“I want to be able to speak to non-Christians so that I can get them saved or change their lives around.”
“I think I can make as much money or even more than LeBron. But it will be up to God for that to happen. If he wants me to market myself, then I’ll do it. I’m not trying to give glory for myself. I’m trying to give glory for Him.”
These are the words of a teenager without millions of dollars in his pocket and millions of women at his hotel door.  For all that we know, this was the intent and mentality of Dwight Howard when he came into the league but it didn’t take long for him to start enjoying the perks of being a rich and famous NBA player and ‘trying to change the lives” of many women.  6 women specifically.  The most recent being a woman named Christine Vest earlier this month who gave birth to Dwight’s 8th child (according to baby mama and Basketball Wives star Royce Reed) in the last 6 years.



Rumor is he does provide financial support for all his kids, which is something a lot of baby mamas of pro athletes can’t relate to, but he’s not “raising” most of these kids and I don’t think God or the Lakers will agree that he’s doing a great job at “raising the name of God within the league” or “saving” anybody.

Maybe things will change when he ends up in Houston, Dallas, Atlanta or that other team in the city of angels but as evident by Dwight’s journey so far, sometimes change isn’t always “good.”

i think we can drop the whole "man of God" title when describing D12, because clearly he isn't living what he was kicking.

To be fair...that was his parents and old high school who were putting the press on him to give off that image. That wasn't his idea.

It has to be something he lived by because once he got out on his own, he started wilding out. From fighting over porn stars to knocking up every woman that would give him some. They aren't going to tell him to put on a condom. He's trying to be King Solomon but with none of the wisdom.
