funny how back in 2010 the frontrunners of who would be the face of the NBA was either going to be howard and lebron because both were unstoppable. carrying franchises to new heights and both had that likable but threatening vibe to them when they stepped onto the court. now that both of them had similar experiences on pressure and ridiculously high expectations from the world we all know who clearly met the challenge and who decided to back down and make excuses.
as much as i dont believe this article, i still think howard wanted to be loved and that was the reason for his downfall. while lebron stopped caring about people's opinions and understood opinions change once you have the merchandise.
