Given his turn to comment about the Rockets’ apparent battle for the starting point guard position Dwight Howard said he was unconcerned with the choice calling it “a luxury to have two great point guards.

“It doesn’t matter and it shouldn’t matter to any of those guys who starts the game or whatever” Howard said. “The biggest thing is that we all accept our roles. If we do that we will have a great season. We can’t allow anything to affect us as a team and pull us in the wrong direction. I enjoy playing with both of those guys.

“We have great chemistry so far. I like the fact that all of us are talking a lot. We spend a lot of time together off the court and this trip has really helped us bond. I’m really excited about our future as a team. I believe that everybody has the confidence that we can win the championship. We’re all talking about how great we can be if we all play together and stay focused. That’s going to be amazing.”

Though Rockets coach Kevin McHale revealed that Howard has been battling a sore hamstring when asked about his surprises through training camp he immediately cited Howard’s impact on those around him.
