Being an NBA star must be pretty confusing.
For the last year, LeBron James has been roundly criticized for joining Miami and not going/staying somewhere where he'd be "the man". Now Dwight Howard states that he wants to be the man, and he's an asshole for being unwilling to accept a secondary role and not wanting to be a winner.
Yeah, but you're forgetting people said Lebron wilted under pressure and that's why he "fled" to Miami.
Dwight's in a different situation. No one has criticized him for melting down. Rather the emerging criticism is that Dwight's ego is too big to share the spotlight.
