Dwight Howard’s Sister Rips The Atlanta Hawks And Their Fans To Shreds After Her Brother Was Traded

By 06.22.17

Just a few days ago Dwight Howard was traded by the Atlanta Hawks to the Charlotte Hornets while he was live-tweeting about NBA trade rumors. Today, Dwight’s sister, Tashanda, spoke with the Charlotte Observer and absolutely blasted the Hawks and the city of Atlanta for blaming the team’s troubles last season on her brother.

“I hear how people talk and the things they say, and I just don’t think that Atlanta is a loyal city. I really don’t,” Tashanda Howard said Tuesday night.

“I hate to hear all the negative calls talking about my brother and the things that have been going on with the Hawks.”

“I understand the rebuilding process, but I don’t think that was the best move,” Howard’s sister said of the trade. “There were some other players that were making some pretty decent money that they could have looked at trading before Dwight.

“I don’t like the decision, I don’t like the way people are talking. Dwight Howard wasn’t a problem with the Hawks this season.”

It’s pretty incredible how fast Dwight Howard has fallen since he left Orlando but you can’t blame the Hawks here for trying to unload his $23 million salary for a bag of chips considering how mediocre he’s been on the court.
