Add J.J. Redick to the list of former teammates who were none too pleased with Dwight Howard's recent comments about his Orlando Magic teammates.

This week Howard told KCAL, a Los Angeles CBS affiliate, that "My team in Orlando was a team full of people who nobody wanted, and I was the leader, and I led that team with a smile on my face."

That characterization of a Magic team that went to the NBA Finals in 2009 hasn't sat well with his former teammates.

"I'm not surprised by it," Redick told ESPNLosAngeles.com Wednesday evening before his Milwaukee Bucks played the Los Angeles Clippers. "I would be more surprised when Dwight starts taking responsibility. That would be the most negative thing I can say, but that's the truth.

"You can't take all the credit and not accept any of the blame."

In the two days since the interview aired, former teammates Jameer Nelson told the Orlando Sentinel that he was "disappointed" in Howard's comments while Rashard Lewis said Howard's comments were "disrespectful."

"It's disrespectful more than anything. We helped Dwight become the player he was," Lewis, now a member of the Miami Heat, told the Sentinel on Wednesday.

"We made a good run. Hell, look at those (conference and division) banners hanging in the stands. They don't say Dwight Howard on them..."

Nelson, who was once one of Howard's closest friends on the Magic, said he was disappointed in Howard's comments.

At some point, when are you a gonna as a man, when are you going to take ownership and stay out of the media in a professional manner," Nelson told the Sentinel.

"I would be less of a man to comment on certain things that people comment on about me and my teammates. We had a great run as a group, as core guys, and he was a part of it (reaching the 2009 Finals) and for him to say things about anybody in a negative manner, that's up to him.

"That's his opinion. If that's how he feels, that's how he feels."

Howard has not publicly commented on the issue since the KCAL interview.

Kobe doesn't even have a better career than Tim Duncan lol.Its funny how you forget a 3 time Finals MVP because of your fantasy with Kobe.Ya we know Kobe is the youngest to 30,000 but fails horribly to be the quickest lol.Lebron is the 3rd quickest to 20,000 and youngest haha.With his 4th MVP under his belt with a 2nd ring for a wrap this year lol.I'll say keep deluding yourself.Kobe blemishes with this team will count on that Legacy while Duncan has been more successful with less than Kobe.The guy had two rookies in Gino and Parker beat baby Kobe with Shaq.Lebron will be miles over Kobe simply because theres no one in his league that only deserves Jordan comparisons.Kobe has never done that.

Black Mamba I'll be would like to here your definition of domination.Kobe has 1MVP in 17 seasons haha.Thats not domination or anyway applying it.The only guys who like Kobe are stupid Rodman and the horrible GM Jordan.They have been irrelevant for just about everything.

<quoted text> why not provide something useful, something that makes people think, you and justin share the same brain and its overloaded already, Lebron is better than a 34 year old kobe hmmmm....NO SHIT!!!
Thats BS.Kobe says he want yo be "The Greatest" right?Kobe is not as athletic as he use to be slightly but lets be honest here.He has always been a 45% jump shooter even in his prime.So even if you used age as an excuse but that still would count against his "Legacy".Can you image Lebron not making the playoffs?You guys were calling him a failure for making the Finals lol.Now here goes Kobe bumming as and he is preaching Playoffs after I got insulted from calling this team a bust from the gecko.I knew Kobe couldn't play with another perimeter all-star.Kobe barely can play great with excellent bigs and he needs the extra shots from being highly used from years playing with Fisher.The fact Kobe has never had a Pippen is purely because he is such a high volume shooter at best.

Lebron has still been great despite having to share it with Wade.Kobe has made Nash worser or irrelevant because Kobe needs to take 25 to 30 shots to even stay in the discussion with Lebron.Kobe makes guys worser and thats how it always been his entire career.Lebron keeps Wade thriving despite his blemishes and he makes the role players look like allstars.Miller,Chalmers and Cole are always looking better with Lebron.Lebron will simply make Kobe irrelevant with years to come because he's a team player.Guys like Kobe will fade away because they are unfixed toys.Duncan is a much more qualified player than Kobe.He has always maximise the talent around him and he has always found other ways to contribute in new offensive schemes even if it means taking a lesser role.

Kobe: "I've been very blessed to have been with a fantastic organization. I truly have. It's coming to an end, and I'm happy that it will be in a Lakers uniform."

Kimmel: "How soon do you think it will be coming to an end?"

Kobe: "It will be soon. I've played 20 years. I mean when I came into the league I had an afro, and I can't grow one now if I tried."

Anybody else have a team with flu like symptoms running rampant? Zeller, Waiters, Booby, trainer Max Benton and now Kyrie improbable for tonight? Zeller is back, maybe Waiters for tonight against the Grizz.

Mamba, ya got all this for your Freaky Friday predictions? Cavs over Pelican Briefs, Chicago Bullsh*t, Dynamite Men, and Utah Azz all made you look bad, didn't they? lol j/k Funny thing is Cavs hung with Miami til the end, and had a 22 point lead over the Knicks (in the 1st half) for their only losses since the break. If they ever learn how to close out a game over the big boys ....

Wow Lakers managed to pull it off, the guy the trolls hate the most was amazing tonight, kobe willed them to a win, thanks to the cavs we are like a game and a half from a playoff spot.
Actually, it is to the Cavs advantage if the Lakers make the playoffs. It has to do with that list of lottery picks that I posted the link for. If the Lakers make the playoffs, Cavs get to use a Miami pick instead, which is a higher pick. It had to do with the Sessions and Lebron deals.
