Dwight Howard’s quest to be liked backfires in his face

Never mind about whether was appropriate for Stan Van Gundy to expose Dwight Howard. It’s out in the open now. Might as well discuss it.

“It” was a rather telling sequence with Van Gundy and Howard after the Magic’s Thursday morning shootaround. It started when Van Gundy was asked by the media about a report earlier this week that said Howard wanted him out as head coach, and he was candid with his response. Continue reading →

Larry King has a major Dwight Howard scoop

He was leaving, then he was staying, then it looked certain he would be leaving. But, nah, Dwight Howard punk’d all of us as decided to stay with the Magic, as far-from-thilled he looked and sounded about it.

But now a new, scandalous, shocking, loosely-sourced report about Howard’s formerly potential move to the New Jersey Nets has surfaced.
