Vince Carter calls Dwight Howard the ‘biggest crybaby’

Vince Carter had to be blunt with his buddy Dwight Howard on Wednesday night. As Howard was complaining to the refs during the Rockets-Mavericks game, Carter called the center a big crybaby.

“All the time,” Carter said of Howard’s whining to officials. “He always talks about how I’m a crybaby. I was like, ‘Yo, you’re the biggest crybaby I know.’ And then later, he’s like, ‘Yo, why’d you say that to me?’ But I know Dwight. It’s all good, but he is [a crybaby].”

Howard earned a costly technical foul late in the fourth quarter of the game. The Rockets fell to the Mavericks, 120-123.

Carter and Howard played together with the Orlando Magic. Carter was on the team for the 2009 season and part of 2010, before being traded midseason to the Phoenix Suns.
