Today is a new day. Even if you were wrong yesterday, you can get it right today.— Dwight Howard
The most staggering Dwight Howard quotes that are proven to give you inner joy
As far juicing goes, I've done it for a couple of years;
it's very good to cleanse the body. Doing the smoothies and getting the fruits and veggies in there just gives you more energy. You'll feel quite different after a couple weeks of doing it. Be consistent with it and you'll see it really makes a difference.
I've decided to become a member of the Houston Rockets.
I feel it's the best place for me and I am excited about joining the Rockets and I'm looking forward to a great season. I want to thank the fans in Los Angeles and wish them the best.
The hardest thing to do is to trust people.
Sugar can cause fatigue and it can also build up on your joints.
It can lead to those injuries where you've got nagging pain on those joints.
Everybody needs to realize that it doesn't matter how old you are or how young you are, you still can be a Christian and live for God. It's not easy but that's why we have God's word and He forgives us when we do something we shouldn't be doing. You know, God sent His son to die for us and He paid that sacrifice so you can go to Heaven.
You always have to keep up with the trends.
The biggest thing is making your own trend and making your own stamp in the fashion industry. Whatever is going to be your style, make that your style and go from there.
My team in Orlando was a team full of people who nobody wanted, and I was the leader and I led that team with a smile on my face.
That's one thing I pride myself on is working hard in the weight room, working hard in practice, trying to become a better player.
I love wearing suits. I love being suited and booted. When I'm chilling, I also like to look nice.
The only way to shut people up is just by winning and just playing basketball.
I try not to have a lot of sugar in my system.
If I have sugar for breakfast, whether that be fruit or some pancakes or French toast, they'll make sure all of the meals for the rest of the day have no sugar in them. I try to take the sugar out of my diet.
When I'm smiling and having fun, that's when you should have a problem.
If I'm out there frowning and looking mean, that's when you know you've beat me - because I'm not having fun. I've been playing basketball since I was three. Everybody since I was three tried to tell me to stop smiling. Even my dad. My dad apologized to me when I was ten.
My purpose in life, my goal for the NBA is to preach God's word - not just try to beat everybody over the head with a Bible but just being a good example and always conducting myself in a Christian-like manner.
I do a lot of exercises where I'm so tired that I'm not supposed to do the last rep. What that does is it teaches me that no matter how far I am, how hard I've fallen, I'm never out of the fight. I just take that with me every time I'm in the weight room.
People say you don't need a father to be successful.
I take offense to that. I had an argument with my mom about Father's Day and why it's not celebrated like Mother's Day.
I didn't need to meet with other teams.
I didn't care about what offers were on the table. I wanted to be in Atlanta. I wanted to represent for this team.
I want to make sure I'm fly. Nothing too baggy, something that fits right. I just like that feeling when you go out in public and everyone's like "Wow, that's an awesome outfit."
I didn't try to cry my way out of Orlando.
That was never my intention, or not what I did at all. And I understand everybody thought it was that way because of what was being put out there.
Nobody thought that I was going to make it to the NBA. I only had a couple of believers growing up.
I had a lot of negativity growing up, so I understand how to block the negativity out.
I changed up everything around me. I hold myself more accountable in certain situations. I try to be a better man, a better father, a better teammate.
I've been on the side where you have nothing, and now I'm on the side where anything I want is there for me. When I didn't have the means to do whatever I wanted to do, I still had peace.
I'm trying to earn everything given to me.
I play hard and I want guys to remember that when they play the Magic they have to face Dwight Howard. And when you face him you have to get after it.
I hated that perception that I didn't work hard, that I really don't love basketball.
That's my job, to motivate people. I can do more, show people more things. That's really why I play basketball. That's my whole purpose of playing basketball.
Rolexes never lose value, so I started getting a couple of them.
I like them. Not only do they look good but they work very well.
The toughest part for me is the city - the people.
They've got burgers named after me in Orlando, they've got a Web site saying, "Please stay." I love the people in the city. I've literally sat on the bench with a towel on my head crying, because I feel the passion in the stands.
I would never, ever desert my child. A lot of my friends didn't have fathers growing up, and they were very upset that their fathers weren't around. I was lucky to have mine around.
I'm really thankful to be alive. If you get to know me, I'm a person that's always smiling and always joyful and I've been that way since I was born because of the struggles I went through. I was supposed to be number eight that died so I'm always thankful.
In Orlando, I handled a lot of stuff the wrong way.
I just want to show Atalanta who I really am and show my teammates what kind of teammate I am.
God says, Turn the other cheek. So there's no way I could play in a man's game.
I know who I am and what kind of teammate I've always been.
It was more of me rushing my shots than anything.
Thats the biggest thing for me. I was making good moves, but at the end of my moves, I was rushing all my shots. I learned a lesson.
Are you gonna be tough, or are you going to be tough?
I know you can't please everybody; you can't make everybody happy, but just getting that perception that I don't care about basketball and what it brings is a lie.
I work extremely hard in the weight room, and also on the court to get better and make sure I keep my body in shape.
My job is to be the best teammate I can be, push these guys to the limit every day, make sure that I'm being the right type of leader.
You really can't please people. I know everybody's attention is on what I'm doing on the floor.
You don't have to be best friends as basketball players but I do believe in chemistry. I think it makes everything different if a team is really together and they're all on that same page. They might not like each other, per se, but if you're on the same page and the chemistry is there, you can play great basketball. You can go back to teams like Detroit, the Bad Boys. Those guys had great chemistry, that's why they won.
Playing 13 years is a long time, but I feel really good. It's not like I'm [old]. I'm just thankful.
When I'm anywhere, I'm going to show God that I'm thankful just for life.
I'm living out my dream. This is what I want to do.
You go from high school, to the NBA, and you're thrown in the fire.
I'm just going to keep working. Spend more days in the gym, as possible. Just trying to get my game up, and just keep playing. And if it's in God's will for me to win, then I'll get it.
Sometimes things don't work like they should.
I want to be the greatest player ever in my era.
I'll joke all day, but once I get in the gym, I'm going to work hard.
I've always played 'NBA Live' since I was a kid, so to be on the cover is a blessing.
The hardest thing to do is to trust people.
Even if you know them from way back when, it's hard to trust people. There's a lot we have to deal with, and it's the price of fame.
