8-time All-Star Dwight Howard: I have a lot left in the tank

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) At 31 and entering his 14th NBA season, eight-time All-Star Dwight Howard says his best basketball is ahead of him.

Wearing a teal suit with black trim, a smiling Howard insisted Monday he can return to being a dominant center with the Charlotte Hornets, where he will be reunited with coach Steve Clifford and play for one of his childhood heroes, team owner Michael Jordan.

"A lot of people have written me off, which is great because it's going to make me work even harder," Howard said during his introductory news conference. "I'm just looking forward to this opportunity because I have a lot left in the tank."
