Howard apologizes for negative comments, incidents off court
So with all of his off-field antics, Josh Howard has finally apologized for disrespecting the national anthem. He says that he loves his country and that he was just joking around.
He was also arrested back in July when caught drag racing at 94 mph in a 55 mph zone. It has been a busy and turbulent summer for Josh Howard but he is going to try and win the fans back.
"I'd like to say that I'm truly and really am sorry for everything that's happened in the last five months," Howard said in a statement before taking questions from reporters on the first day of Mavericks training camp. "This is not the way I carry myself, not how I want to be portrayed. I'm sorry to everybody I've offended. I'm upset with myself and the way I've acted."
In a video posted recently on YouTube, Howard was shown at a charity flag football game. As the national anthem plays in the background, Howard approaches a camera and says: "'The Star Spangled Banner' is going on right now. I don't even celebrate that [expletive]. I'm black."
