Josh Howard Issues Apology

Howard didn’t make excuses. He didn’t duck questions. He didn’t cut anyone off.

He said he was sorry, he was hurt, he was upset with himself.

Even if it was late in coming – considering it’s been nearly two weeks since reports surfaced about his inflammatory comments on the national anthem, which came on the heels of a street-racing charge, an ill-timed birthday bash and a call into a radio station about smoking pot – the Mavs’ second-best player certainly took a major step toward rehabilitating his image.
