Dwight Howard is not the most beloved player in the NBA this year, league-wide he might be the most reviled, and on Wednesday the fans in Philadelphia were giving Dwight the business.
I don't know this for sure, but Philly fans are renowned for being the most "difficult" in the league, and in other sports. A fan on reddit snapped a photo of Howard displaying his frustration with the fans and flipping someone the finger.
It was an all-around tough night for D12 as the Rockets lost to the young Sixers 123-117 in overtime.
PHILADELPHIA – Calling it a "happy day" and the end of a "great ride," former Philadelphia 76ers great Allen Iverson formally announced his retirement during a news conference Wednesday afternoon in the Sixers' home arena, over three years after he played his final NBA game.
The 38-year-old Iverson, an 11-time All-Star, four-time NBA scoring champion and three-time All-NBA first-teamer, spent parts of 12 seasons with the Sixers, and played 14 years in all. He was the league MVP in 2001, leading Philadelphia to its most recent appearance in the Finals.
