WKMG, an Orlando television station is reporting that Dwight Howard called Magic owner Rich DeVos last Friday to say he won’t play for Stan Van Gundy. Apparently, Howard is still sore about Van Gundy’s decision to tell the media that the center wanted him fired.
Howard is currently out of the line up with a herniated disk in his lower back and is expected to miss the playoffs.
To make matters worse, a recent Sports Illustrated poll shows that Van Gundy is the coach that players would least like to play for. The problem is that Van Gundy is a good coach and he gets results!
I mean if Dwight Howard has this gigantic fear of replicating Shaquille O’Neal’s career, then he shouldn’t clash with Van Gundy.
