    Watching ESPN, and they were very blunt about the media not liking him. (comment about Howard at 40-45 sec mark)... I guess if you spurn the mighty Lakers you spurn most of the media as well. I wish JVG was in charge of the media, he's the only one it seems that actually adores DHoward and the Rockets.

    (P.S) THE yeee-haww was kind of lame...:eek:

    Howard has shown me a lot. Media can cry themselves a river, he ain't going back to la and the fact they keep fishing for issues with these rockets and howard, the dumber they look.

    Two words for the la loving media.....
    Suck it!

    yep. if anybody is in tune with houston sports in the national media it would be robert flores. for him to say that most media doesnt like dwight is probably first hand experience from his conversations with them.

    Van Gundy's still living in Houston probably helps in his views toward Dwight and the Rockets. He made comment about "our beloved Texans" as well when talking about the draft.

    The media hate towards Dwight is unwarranted. Hopefully we rise up and shut them all up.

    Yea, I was a little taken aback by that comment. I think he actually said FANS and media? (Can't see the video)

    RoFlo and Hannah Storm the only advocates for Houston sports at ESPN. they routinely go off prompter when discussing rox/texans/stros.

    Meh. Jeff Van Gundy likes him. His opinion is one of the only in basketball I can take and trust. Houston loves him. And he loves Houston. That's what I care about.

    He said the same thing on twitter a few days back

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>He'll never get recognition for it, bc most fans/media members don't like him, but D Howard's post game has improved greatly. <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Rockets&amp;src=hash">#Rockets</a></p>&mdash; Robert Flores (@RoFloESPN) <a href="https://twitter.com/RoFloESPN/statuses/441054777137717248">March 5, 2014</a></blockquote>

    This might give Noah the edge for 1st team All NBA over Dwight, unfortunately.

    Thanks for posting the tweet. He needs to back off a little bit, or he might be an ex-ESPN employee. We need him there to make watching ESPN bearable!

    A lot of "fans" were opposed to him signing with the rockets fearing he had a bad attitude and was a quitter etc.. So what's the difference? Eat crow! Bandwagoners

    The best thing you can do is not watch ESPN. Not only Rocket fans, but all teams/fans not named Lakers, Knicks or Miami Lebrons should avoid ESPN. It might not make a blimp of a difference for their ratings though. So sad that other teams have great games and their highlights are short because they want to cover what kobe/lebron think about some bs.
