    First and foremost, I hope there aren't actually any abused children in this case.

    Coming from someone who was hit with a belt, I think the buckle-end is too much.

    But if this is a legitimate claim, and I'm not kidding guys -- this could be the Achilles cocaine (re: Wiggins and Sweet Lou) of our current Rockets.

    We're maybe not even an 8 seed without Dwight, in our current form.

    Let's just hope it doesn't come to that. The good thing is that authorities in Florida already looked at the evidence and considered it frivolous.

    My comment is based on extortion, not on whether or not a child was abused.

    All in all, I hope that a child was not abused

    lol

    No. Any suspected crime can be investigated as many times as wanted. Once someone is tried and found innocent then they can't be prosecuted again even if evidence is found showing they did do the crime.

    Besides, Florida should not have been doing an investigation anyway if the acts were committed in Georgia. Apparently the mother went to Florida authorities at first then when they finished the investigation and declined to pursue she went to the Georgia authorities.

    Florida and Georgia (including Texas) are states that allow spanking though and that is all Howard is accused of doing. To clarify why many are skeptical is Dwight has started actions to gain full custody of this kid. He get full custody the Mother gets no money to raise him.

    My Dad was old school when it came to punishment, doing what his own father did while he was growing up, although getting spanked with his belt didn't happen nearly as much as I deserved. I raised hell as a kid. He never used the buckle end, though. It wouldn't have occured to him. Absent proof that Dwight did, and this incident has already been investigated at least once and dropped by the Florida police, sounds like the woman is trying to "spank" Dwight herself and get some more bread in her bank account. I never spanked my kids. Didn't need to. Damn, were we lucky. Both are young adults now. If they want spanking, they'll have to arrange that themselves. ;-)-

You can't hide that well. Also, you can only bully and lie on me so much in the media before I respond. I am asking you to refrain from leaking false allegations you have no proof of &amp; never will because they're all lies. As far as "exposing him" you have 5.5million followers on Twitter &amp; abt 900k on IG in comparison to my 160k. Last I checked your main pic had Bray in it &amp; as I scroll through your post I see PLENTY of photos &amp; videos of him as well so try again (don't try to delete now, we already have screen captures). Oh &amp; who are alllll these men??? I need names because last I checked I was using batteries and I only have 1 child not 4...or 5... By different ppl. I have an army too and mine aren't paid they're genuine. We go by truth WITH PROOF! So.... With that being said, I'd REALLY like to get back to my regularly scheduled Instagram post &amp; handle this in the court.... Thank you I asked nicely...</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A photo posted by Royce Reed (@roycereed) on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2014-11-19T19:58:41+00:00">Nov 11, 2014 at 11:58am PST</time></p></div></blockquote><script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>

    Dwight still hasn't learned his lesson. I have it on good authority that he did the dirty with a girl he met on the first night and didn't wrap it up. The girl was upset she didn't get prego:eek:

    Funny that Georgia would be picking up this investigation considering they still allow corporal punishment in schools.

    Well, I guess this takes a different turn. Guess, if there's evidence, Howards done for. The NBA doesn't take a beating like the NFL took.

    "Last I checked I was using batteries"????

    Did she just announce her vibrator usage to her 160K Instagram followers, in response to the allegation that she exposes her kid to sexual situations? Hey, everyone's mom talks about using a vibrator during national media exposure and a custody battle. . . .
