LOOK: Dwight Howard traded while holding Twitter Q&A about NBA trade rumors
We can't imagine Howard expected to be traded in the middle of a Q&A session on Twitter
NBA players will occasionally jump on Twitter to answer fans' questions about various subjects. With the NBA Draft approaching and trade rumors heating up, Dwight Howard decided to host a Q&A in which he addressed some of the proposed trades.
He probably didn't think that one of the trades he'd be asked about would involve ... Dwight Howard.
Spears later corrected "Bobcats" to "Hornets," and details surfaced that Howard NBA Draft for Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli and the 41st pick. Fans, of course, had a field day with this info and bombarded Howard with comments about the trade.along with the 31st pick in Thursday's
Howard only answered one trade question (about Paul George, not himself) before ending in the Q&A, so it's safe to assume he wasn't informed that he was going to be traded before the report broke. It's just another reminder that in the social media age, sometimes the fans get the news at the same time as the players involved.
