Dwight Howard Can’t Stop Talking About “The D” During Postgame Interview (Video)

dwight howard obsessed with the d

Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard has shown on numerous occasions that he has the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy. On Thursday night he did it again.

During an interview with Fox Sports South’s Olivia Harlan following the Hawks’ 119-114 win over the Bulls in Chicago, the controversial superstar just could not stop talking about the “d.”

If you’re old and don’t understand why that is significant, please, allow me to explain. You see, in sports “d” usually refers to defense. However, in street slang “d” often refers to male genitalia. So basically Dwight Howard was making dick jokes live on basic cable.

Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schröder picked up on the joke, and his first language is German.

Take a look:

So what does Olivia Harlan think about this? Lucky for Howard she seems to think the whole thing was pretty funny:

Still, Dwight Howard might want to try harder (pun intended) not to make so many dick jokes in the future. Just to be on the safe side.
