Dwight Howard trolled on Twitter after positing motivational speech without sound
Dwight Howard has certainly had his ups and downs in the NBA.
After being a dominating force for the Orlando Magic, the center has struggled throughout stints with the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets. Now that he is getting a fresh start with his hometown Atlanta Hawks, it seems Dwight is feeling a little nostalgic and sentimental.
He posted a motivational speech to his Twitter account on Monday. There was only one problem: after introducing his video about believing in yourself, the sound goes out:
I BELIEVE in all my followers, this message is for anyone who has ever doubted themselves. Be Gr8 pic.twitter.com/NjT07bkc6G

Before the volume cuts short, Howard says:
“Just siting in my car. I had some thoughts I wanted to share with you guys. If any of you are dream chasers out there…”
Despite the issue, some of Howard’s followers still appreciated the effort:

However, not all of his Twitter followers were too kind about the video mishap:
