In fact, he let Howard know about it during the second quarter of the Mavericks' 123-120 victory over the Rockets last night.
According to ESPN.com, Carter interrupted Howard’s discussion with an official and repeatedly told Howard that he was “the biggest crybaby I know.”
“All the time,” Carter said of Howard’s whining to officials. “He always talks about how I’m a crybaby. I was like, ‘Yo, you’re the biggest crybaby I know.’ And then later, he’s like, ‘Yo, why’d you say that to me?’ But I know Dwight. It’s all good, but he is [a crybaby]."
Carter, who scored nine points, had five rebounds and five assists in the victory, still maintained they were friends.
“I mean, he takes a lot of punishment, but I’m like, ‘Yo, c’mon Dwight, c’mon. You elbowed, you’re sitting in the paint the entire time. What are you whining about?’ He told me to stop crying. I was like, ‘What? Are you serious?’”
