08:10 AM ET 03.19 | Nearing spring, the NBA world is seeing more of Dwight Howard in full bloom. Howard is growing all on his own, single-mindedly focused on who he wants to be, and he has taken another major step forward in his career by leaving the business manager who has been Howard's primary advisor his entire career, Kevin Samples. ... For all the intangible growth Howard has discovered recently, breaking away from Samples is a concrete gesture that the past is the past -- and Howard is confident in calling his own shots in the future. ... For Howard to sever the tie is no small statement. "He's still my cousin, my family, so we'll always be around each other," Howard said. "But we just parted ways on the business side."
