People do not get it...

This is not about crybabies or any other character flaw.

This is about the fact that Howard is not allowed to be a banger like some other non-athletic types in the NBA. Zaza Pachulia of Atlanta comes to mind.
The next time Atlanta plays the Magic please note how physical Zaza gets to play Howard as opposed to the opposite.

Problem is that Howard is so athletic that any percieved short cut by officials is magnified in their calling.

And BTW... Stan Van Gundy's complaining, and subsequently HOWARD'S complaining does not help the situ.

The fault in all of this is really in the fact that Howard at this stage of his career should be a more polished offensive player. More efficient in the low post, making his overall game much easier. If he commits LESS fouls on offense, he would not foul out of games AT ALL. Note that he is now a two-time Defensive Player of the Year. Great defenders do not foul out on defense.

If I were running the Magic, I would give Hakeem Olojuwon a millon bucks, lock him in a gym with Howard for this coming summer and teach this kid how to be an offensive force.

The NBA would never see another team win the NBA championship for another seven years...

Guarenteed!

Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic: ZERO NBA Titles

Crying is in the eye of the beholder.
