There’s been plenty of speculation that one of the reasons Mark Cuban traded Josh Howard to the Wizards last week was his concern about Howard’s partying. More specifically, Howard missing a recent game because he was hung over. Cuban addressed that on the Dan Patrick Show today:
Cuban also talked about former Maverick Josh Howard missing a game because he was hung over. Cuban said that he thought Howard could have done more to play that day.
Cuban said if he doesn’t trust a player, he can really check up on them. “You can’t be partying the night before a game. Period, end of story,” Cuban said. He did say he doesn’t care about off nights.
Ironic that Howard was traded to the team that he supposedly missed a game against because of his adverse reax to nighttime activities.
