    Very interesting. It turns out that not a single player on this team, even Kevin McHale, respects Howard's game anymore. And why should they? He's gotten so bad on both ends of the floor that there are times it feels like we're just better off without him. I'm sure players are also aware of that.

    Can Howard's disinterested and pathetic performance after the ASB be explained by the fact that he no longer sees himself as a Rocket?

    Different content with different analysis.

    My points is Howard has lost respect of the entire Rockets players, and has been playing disinterested after the ASB since he no longer wants to be on this team.

    This content is included in the other two threads, so it can't be different...and because it's there, it's already being discussed. One of the threads literally has "respect" in the title...

    "There is a perception that several players are not happy with Howard "

    thanks for pointing that out. "Several players are not happy with Howard."

    "He lost players' respect"


    And that sentence is followed by Howard losing players' respect.

    Do you have trouble comprehending English sentences?

    if someone generically says "He lost coworkers' respect", does that only pertains to only few people? smh

    Reading comprehension fail again. It doesn't say every single player has lost his respect, it doesn't even imply it. There is a perception that several players are not happy.

    If you can't tell the difference between the words "all" and "several", don't start this thread.

    Also, lock her up.

    does that mean he lost ALL coworkers' respect? and why the ad hominem about comprehending English sentences? You've lost my respect. Which I'm pretty sure means you've lost everyone's respect. "smh."

    have a nice day. ;)

    "He lost Americans' respect"

    "He lost employees' respect"

    "He lost students' respect"

    All three sentences imply someone has lost the respect of a particular group, generally.

    That statement is non-specific about how many people are being described. It does not in any way indicate "all".

    Does Howard not getting respect from other players infuriate you? Maybe he should work on this free throws :)

    Exact same content, except with that quote from the Bucks' reporter that was also already posted and discussed to death. But okay.

    ETA: And with a thread title using quotations for a "quote" that does not exist in the article.
