DALLAS (AP) -Mavericks forward Josh Howard has apologized for disrespecting the national anthem and ``everything that's happened in the last five months.''
The team's second-leading scorer behind Dirk Nowitzki focused Monday on expressing remorse for his comments about the anthem during a YouTube video.
And he also apologized for other off-court problems, which include a July arrest after police said he was drag racing at 94 mph in a 55 mph zone and his admission in a radio interview that he smokes marijuana.
Howard, who averaged 19.9 points last season, made his statement and took questions from reporters on the first day of Mavericks training camp.
