What’s more embarrassing - the Lakers’ 0-3 start, or Dwight Howard’s purple dumb purple arm sleeves? Trick question, the truly embarrassing sleeves will come later, once Dwight debuts his Christian Audigier-designed skull-print sleeves at the All-Star break.

Dwight played his first (preseason) game in a Lakers uniform. This is just a reminder of the impetus for what transpired in Los Angeles this summer.

Now is the appropriate time to shiver and hug yourself while rocking silently in anticipation of tomorrow’s melancholy.

Will “Kobe to Dwight for the dunk” actually become a thing?

How many games into the season will Lakers fans, of the non-Kobe-fan-boy variety, start complaining that “Kobe doesn’t pass the ball to Howard enough”?

Pau Gasol has no idea how Dwight grows those odd lumps in his arms.
Oh, by the way, it’s happening…

And there it is, Lakers fans, your 2012-13 starting five. 
Will this team win a title this year or follow in the footsteps of the 2004 Lakers?

The Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks have agreed in principle to a trade that will send Joe Johnson to Brooklyn for a few spare parts and a lottery-protected draft pick. The Nets are also expected to re-sign Deron Williams soon.
What this means financially is that Dwight Howard will not be moving to Brooklyn just a week after Howard finally, publicly admitted that he wanted Orlando to trade him there.
So Dwight blew it and all because he was too scared?/confused?/hopeless? to ask for the one thing that every 21-year old kid with a trust fund in America tells his or her parents after graduation: “Thanks for the money. I want to move to Brooklyn.”

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.

Who does he think he is?

Orlando played its trump card. Sources for months maintained Howard wanted no part of the Lakers, that he did not want to follow the legacy of Shaquille O’Neal. Orlando leaders had one other reason for the threat: They favored the Lakers’ package of Andrew Bynum, Devin Ebanks and Steve Blake over the Nets’ offer.

Howard, of course, signed and everyone spoke of loyalty, which would have been better served had he signed long term. So the Magic have the game’s most dominant center locked up — until the nonsense starts again.

Very weird look inside the Dwight Howard trade drama from earlier this year. The Magic threatened to trade Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers if Howard didn’t waive opt-out. 

Shaq really haunts and taunts Dwight Howard’s career. Doesn’t want to be a Laker, just wants to be buddies with Jay-Z. 

One day, we’ll stop talking about Dwight Howard. One day.

Stan Is Tired Of The Bullshit

My favorite part of that video interview is the impeccable timing in which Dwight comes in for the photobomb just as soon as Stan calls him out followed by the awkward tension when Dwight puts his arm around him.

It’s hard to tell if it’s just their camaraderie or if it’s more like a, “watch what you say about me cause I can rip your face in half with one hand” kind of a gesture.

And such is the current state of this Orlando Magic team.

At this point though, I feel for Stan and would rather he leave/get fired so he can coach a better team (Clippers, amirite??) and in his own words, not deal with any more of the bullshit.
