Remember when Metta World Peace called out the media for not giving the Lakers enough shine? Good times. Dwight Howard did almost the same thing, except this speech was a bit negative.

Los Angeles has seen a lot of criticism in its struggle of a season and Howard is just tired of it.

“Negativity just got to stop. I’m sick of hearing about it. I’m sick of hearing about all the negative stuff. It’s a big problem. Negativity is just not good,” he said. “We got to bring some positivity to this situation, to everybody.

“That’s like a dark cloud, and the more you feed into the negativity, the bigger it gets. So, we have to change that and we have to believe. For all the fans and everybody who support the Lakers, believe. Yes, we’re struggling. Yes, it’s not the best time to be a Laker fan or a Laker player, but we will get out of it. There’s a rainbow on the other end. We just got to make sure we get to it. I don’t know if we got to eat some more Skittles or whatever it may be, but we got to find a way.”

Well, the only way to make it stop may be to step up your game, Superman. Either that or let World Peace speak that knowledge after the losses.

The only reason why there is a dark cloud is because the Lakers put together a superteam just like they did a few years back and are playing worse than before they got Dwight.

Maybe its time to give Phil Jackson another call?
