LeBron James on Dwight Howard: 'He ain't going through what I went through (http://nurize.com/sports/vids/vidfile/sports%20articles.html)
LeBron James understands Dwight Howard faces scrutiny now that everyone knows Howard wants a trade from the Orlando Magic.
But James just doesn't think the spotlight on Howard can compare to what he faced as he chose to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.
"No, he ain't going through what I went through, don't say that," James told a reporter Wednesday, before the Magic hosted the Heat at Amway Center. "He's nowhere near going through what I went through."
James, of course, grew up in Akron, and many people in Cleveland and Ohio still regard him as a villain. Cavaliers Owner Dan Gilbert ripped James in a letter to the team's fans. Fathead, a company owned by Gilbert, changed the price of its James wall graphics to $17.41; 1741 is the birth year of Benedict Arnold.
Asked what advice he would give Howard, James replied, "The only advice I can give is he's just got to be happy with any decision that comes out of this. He loves the game of basketball, and I wish him the best."
