Dwight Howard: Phil will be great for me

Kevork Djansezian

Laker superstar Dwight Howard says that Phil Jackson will be great for him, which is a good sign for his future with the organization.

Dwight Howard is on board the Phil Jackson train, too. In an exclusive interview with USA Today's, Dwight voiced his opinion on Jackson.

"He is (the greatest), and...I think he'll be great for me," Howard said in an exclusive interview with USA TODAY Sports as he walked out of the Staples Center on Friday night. "But as of right now, my main thing is getting healthy and getting these guys together throughout all the scrutiny and all the stuff that we've been through so far -- just keeping the guys together."

It may have been a tiny remark, but it's not insignificant. Dwight's blessing was more important than anybody else's because of his impending free agency and to hear that he would welcome the Zen Master is extremely positive news for his future with the Lakers.
