Dwight Howard to Shaq: 'Your Time is Up': After ignoring criticism by Shaquille O'Neal for years, new Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard responded with anger after O'Neal recently compared him unfavorably to Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez. "Shaq played the game and he is done," Howard told reporters Thursday. "It's time to move on. He hated the fact when he played that older guys were talking about him and how he played. Now he's doing the exact same thing. Just let it go. There's no sense for him to be talking trash to me. He did his thing in the league. Sit back and relax. Your time is up."
