I do feel for [Dwight Howard] sometimes. It's all on his shoulders, just like it was all on mine, and when he doesn't get it done he's the one standing there trying to explain, even though he put up huge numbers. Nothing changes in the NBA.
But, of course, Shaq is also hard on Howard based on that stupid Superman feud.
Dwight Howard and I don't really have a relationship. I don't like people who lack originality. The whole Superman thing doesn't work for me. ... It's kind of weird how he's handled his career. He wants to be Superman. They're talking about him going to L.A. when his contract is up. When I go back to the Orlando area in the offseason, they are doing all the same things for him they did for me. But that's a mistake. He's Dwight Howard. He's not Shaq. Be your own man. Create your own brand.
Shaq's right. Howard should scratch plans for Dwight-Fu and put away that silly genie costume.
