Reports have surfaced today that during 2013 NBA All-Star game in Houston, Western conference coach Gregg Popovich cursed out Dwight Howard during a timeout.

Apparently Gregg splattered Dwight with “a few f-bombs” after Dwight messed up a play, which is hard to do in an all-star game.

Stephen A. Smith revealed more details on ESPN radio:

Then this past weekend, at All-Star weekend – I haven’t’ seen anyone report it, so I guess I’ll be the first.

Coach Gregg Popovich dropped a few f-bombs in Dwight Howard’s direction, during All-Star break. Now why is that guys? Because during the timeout, Gregg Popvich drew up a play for Dwight Howard, in the game…except when it was time to run the play, Dwight Howard wasn’t in the game, wasn’t paying attention, was on the bench in his warm ups chillin out socializing with folks, and Gregg Popvich almost went ballistic, and basically was cussing at him according to numerous people I spoke to since this weekend.

So, all of that speaks to the focus, or lack there of, that the Kobe Bryant’s and others have alluded to with their comments over the last few months. You can’t have something like that. It’s an All-Star game and you have Gregg Popovich upset at you.

It seems like everybody hates Dwight these days as he can never seem to do anything right. I guess it’s safe to say that San Antonio is no longer a potential landing spot in a trade for Mr. Howard either.
