Tainting the ball of a sport before a game is frowned upon in all sports.
In football, the NFL made a huge deal over "deflategate" with Tom Brady and they came down on the Patriots hard.
Now we have another huge issue, as Rockets center Dwight Howard has been caught using an illegal substance to help him with the basketball before games.
Officials had to remove a ball from game action due to a sticky substance that Dwight Howard later admitted he applied. You can see Paul Millsap take the ball from the official and immediately look at it like, “WTF?”
In regards to the Stickum, Howard said "I don’t know why people are making a big deal out of it. I do it every game. It’s not a big deal. I ain’t tripping.”
According to Howard, he has used it openly before every game for the past five years.
Should Dwight Howard be suspended for putting a sticky substance on the ball before a game?
