Matt Barnes & Stephen Jackson offer their opinion on Dwight Howard's alleged scandal.
Over the weekend, a major scandal shook the NBA world as it was alleged that Dwight Howard regularly attends transgender sex parties. He was outed by Masin Elije, a man who identifies as gay, for having a romantic relationship with him over the years. Dwight has remained silent on the situation, hoping everything blows over soon, but others are offering their opinions on the topic at hand. Obviously, somebody's sexual preference shouldn't really be making headlines. However, with the infrequency of players coming out in the NBA, this was made into a big deal. Dwight's former teammate Matt Barnes went on Instagram live with Stephen Jackson to discuss their thoughts.
As he was getting a haircut, Barnes alerted his fans that he would soon go live to spill the tea about his former teammate. He was joined by Stephen Jackson as they chopped it up. Matt says that he never had a personal problem with Dwight after playing with him in Orlando, offering his two cents on what held him back as a great player. At one point, Jackson had a "pause" worthy moment as he says that Dwight can still finish around the hole, retracting the statement and specifying that he means in basketball.
Barnes says that he has no issue with transgender people - he knows Caitlyn Jenner through Lamar Odom and celebrates her - but he doesn't agree with the way trans issues are handled in the media. After teasing some drama, this was pretty tame. However, it might be worth your time.
