Dwight Howard

I REFUSE to Watch

the NBA Finals!

When the Heat and the Spurs went into OT during last night's dramatic Game 6 of the NBA Finals ... Dwight Howard was busy eating dinner -- telling TMZ he didn't have the stomach to watch.

Howard hit up Crustacean in Beverly Hills last night -- at the very same time LeBron and Co. were taking on Tony Parker and the rest of San Antonio.

Sources inside the restaurant tell us ... The L.A. Lakers star (at least for now) was nowhere near the TV during the game ... and focused on dinner with his buddies the entire time.

On his way out of the restaurant, Dwight explained why he chose not to watch -- telling us, "I'm not watching ... I'm not playing so ain't no need to be [watching]."

He added, "I don't want to see nobody win a championship."

At least he's honest.

A sign of his ignorance and arrogance! Every NBA player who's not in the game right now SHOULD be watching these games!! And if they're not, they're really not that good, and don't have any interest in doing better next year. You can certainly learn something about your opponents for the next season when you meet. Dwight's head is waaaay too BIG!!!!

Another sign of his immaturity. He might learn something watching Tim Duncan.

You all at TMZ are to blame for D.H.'s winless time here in L.A.!! You all were rude to him some time ago on 1 of his impressions, and after that, it was all down hill! :(

I haven't watched basketball for so many years because it's not really basketball anymore. If they had the real rules followed, Lebron James wouldn't be able to play the game. He travels, fouls, pushes,elbows and he's a big cry baby when he is called on it. He doesn't know how to play the game correctly. What a loser! Most of the big ego players can't play by the rules at all.

DW is a loooozer and needs to stay silent. What has he done for anybody he has played for? He is an over rated AS and needs to move on. Freaking crybaby. He will never be a winner, cause any team that signs him will see the same results...Over paid lazy ass moron that runs his mouth too much... Pay your child support idiot.
