Found November 28, 2012 on 5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
GQ recently released a list titled “The Least Influential People of 2012″.  One particular NBA player made that list.  That player, you may ask?  Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers.  GQ did include an important note that states, Please note that these folks are ranked in no particular order, because all zeros are created equal. With that said, Dwight Howard is listed fourth on that list.  This is partly due to the whole “Dwightmare” that occurred while he was still with the Orlando Magic.  Now that he is with the Los Angeles Lakers, that whole fiasco is still attached to his name apparently. The three ahead of Dwight Howard on this confusingly humorous and insightful list include Mitt Romney, Amanda Bynes and Madonna.  Dwight Howard has something to be proud of.  Being in Los Angeles means the media will go after you in any way possible, even if the intent is to be funny.  On the other hand, a funny list making fun of a funny guy will result into a funny debate sooner or later.  Once Dwight Howard gets word of this list, we can only prepare of what hilarity will ensue from one of the most comedic players in the NBA.

Dwight Howard, James Dolan among GQ's least influential people

A year of waffling, saying one thing and meaning another and changing your mind while fans wait on your every word has the tendency to make you not trust a man.

Yes, Dwight Howard is not exactly the guy you want to hold up as a bastion of...
