Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard called into 'The Dan Patrick Show' on Monday to discuss a variety of topics including the red-hot Bulls.

"I think Chicago is playing the best basketball right now," said Howard.

He also weighed in on the MVP race and said if he couldn't vote for himself, that he would vote for Derrick Rose.

With the Heat's emotional reaction to their loss to the Bulls on Sunday a hot topic around the nation, Howard also talked about crying after losses.

I used to cry after all my basketball games. Then one of my teammates said youre in the NBA now just get it back the next game, Howard said.

Howard stuck up for the Heat. If they were crying, that means they really care about winning, Howard said. Its kind of tough for those guys because coming into the season everyone had them winning 90 games, Howard said.

Catch "The Dan Patrick Show" Monday-Friday from 8:00-11:00 a.m. on Comcast SportsNet.
