Dwight Howard just hates playing in Orlando. Why, hell if I know. Orlando Magic naturally will always be a second tier NBA team. Women every where and no sales tax? What else could a man want? Van Gundy is kind of weird but heh WTF right? Dwight Howard to La Lakers Meme set for blast off…….
Now for reasons Dwight should...
Before this season started, Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick spoke with player development coach Mark Price, and they kiddingly reached a conclusion: that Redick needed to have a couple of seasons in which Redick made 94 percent or 95 percent of his free-throw attempts.
The struggling Glen “BIg Baby” Davis was booed lustily by fans in Orlando on Monday night, which upset his teammates and coaches. Per the Orlando Sentinel: “I was disappointed,’ [Stan] Van Gundy said. ‘Our fans are normally better than that. I don’t like it. …. I don’t know what would compel you to say things at Glen Davis.’ Ryan Anderson said ‘it was disrespectful...
It’s no secret the Nets stink (they’re 8-23). It’s also no secret they desperately want Dwight Howard. So with Howard and the Magic making their only trip to New Jersey this season on Wednesday, in what may as well be called “Dwight Howard Night,” the Nets going the extra mile to make sure they impress the soon-to-be free agent center.

It was Howard's seventh 20-point, 20-rebound game of the season.

Dwight Howard scored 26 points and grabbed 20 rebounds as the Orlando Magic rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 94-85 Friday night.
Ryan Anderson had seven 3-pointers and 27 points, Dwight Howard added 17 points and 14 rebounds and the Orlando Magic shot their way past the Philadelphia 76ers, 103-87 on Wednesday night.
In the end, only one player from the Magic can be in the 3-point contest this All-Star Weekend. Ryan Anderson is a pretty good pick. He is the NBA leader in 3-pointers made and 3-pointers attempted. An obvious pick.
But so would have J.J. Redick, Jason Richardson and Jameer Nelson. They can hit 3-pointers too. And when the Magic start hitting 3-pointers, the avalanche is tough to...
The Magic closed the game on a 17-0 run as the Bucks lost their fourth straight game and suffered their 12th consecutive defeat in Orlando. Carlos Delfino led Milwaukee with 16 points.
