Every morning, the fine folks at Sports Radio Interviews sift through the a.m. drive-time chatter to bring you the best interviews with coaches, players, and personalities across the sports landscape. Today: Haywood says he never punched Dwight Howard.
Remember this dunk? Of course you do. It was awesome. Brendan Haywood, whose greatest skill has traditionally been being marginally better than Erick Dampier or Etan Thomas, remembers it too.
Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder turned the Mavericks' Brendan Haywood into a highlight-reel prop before the end of the first quarter of Game Two of the Western Conference Championship series. The Thunder went on to win the game 106-100 and even the series at one all.
"I don't support or condemn homosexuality," Haywood explains agnostically, before diving into the comments and discoursing with the rabble on such matters as race, sexuality, the First Amendment and showering with men. [Yardbarker]
Or, as he put it, "swinging from both sides of the fence", which is what the Wiz center concluded after he watched some of Marbury's ridiculous live-streaming marathons from a couple weeks ago.
Someday, the Washington Wizards are going to bring in a decent center, and he's going to kick both of their asses. Brendan Haywood and Etan Thomas reportedly got into a fight at practice, which would make their third fight over the last two years.
When Washington Wizards forward Etan Thomas isn't busy extolling the virtues of Abe Pollin's prostate in lyrical poem form or reminding us that David Stern doesn't care about black people, apparently, he whittles away the hours getting in fights with teammate Brendan Haywood.
