Among the things talked about are Kobe unfollowing Dwight on twitter / Kobe's picture on Instagram of him and Pau after Dwight chose Houston , responding to Shaq/Magic/Kareem's comments about Dwight, and more.

I like Dwight a lot. He's a free agent. He gets the choice to go to what's best for him. I'm glad it was us.

Great interview. Found it funny that Dwight was trying not to crack up laughing when asked about the Kobe/Pau twitter-instagram stuff.

I only take my SAS commentary with a side of Skip Bayless rebuttal.

Dwight will be this year's Lebron in terms of gaining the respect back from the league. I am just glad he will be doing it on our stomping grounds.


I know this is going to sound impossible, but I think ESPN will start to pick on Kevin Durant now. That's just how this works. Build a player up to be the next best thing. Then, break him down for minor things or lack of [blank]. Then a big move happens. Redemption. On to the next guy.

Impressive, didn't expect him to handle those questions as well as he did.

I agree. Great interview. Stephen A asked the questions we wanted to know, and D12 had great answers. I hope he clears up he did NOT flip flop in his decision in part 2 of the interview.

great interview. I especially liked his response towards the bitter Laker legends at the end. F### them. Like he said, Hakeem has never said anything bad about him and has worked with him even since his days in Orlando, whereas Lakers legends have criticized him publicly even during his time in LA.

It's not really hard to answer hard questions as long as your truthful with your response. I have to agree with you that it was impressive as it had a genuine and sincere feel to it.

I really have a good feeling about this team and DH12. Almost like his personality just fits with the Rox. Win some rings and all critics will be quieted.
