The Orlando Magic are just a complete mess. A complete utterly mess. And at the center of it all is Dwight Howard. Just in the past month, we’ve heard that Howard wanted Magic coach Stan Van Gundy fired. Something that Howard denied. But things got awkward when Van Gundy later confirmed it. And now, there’s word that Howard does not want to play for Van Gundy any longer and he will likely sit out the postseason. And just in case you doubt a report like this, let us just tell you that this is coming from David Pingalore of WKMG. The same man that brought us the initial report that started this whole episode. Local 6 Sports Director David Pingalore has learned through NBA and Orlando Magic sources that Dwight Howard does not want to play for head coach Stan Van Gundy any longer. According to his sources, Howard is still upset with Van Gundy confirming Pingalore’s report from earlier this month that Howard went to Magic management asking for Van Gundy to be fired.

  • I find professional sports so unprofessional!! These guys sign MULTIMILLION dollar contract and then act like a bunch of b%#@*$%. Honor your contract and be quiet!! Talk to your agent and let him find you a new home crybaby.
  • They all deserve it. Howard deserves it for being a whiney crybaby and trying to tell those paying him what to do. Management deserves it for agreeing to pay these guys so much before they have done a thing. Everyone knows not to pay the help before they are done. This is the problem with all pro sports. Performance based pay is the only solution.
  • Howard should go to the Lakers, as should Odom. You can't make someone play for a coach he doesn't like. Coaches need to understand that. It's the player that is the money-maker, not the sideline coach.
  • I can see disagreeing with the coach but be professional and do your job.We all don't always agree with our boss but we still go to work.These guys are a bunch of millionaire crybabies.They need to start docking these players like any other job. Sick days etc. Getting the kind of money they get i wouldn't care if the coach asked me to tie everyones sneakers. I blame part of these babies to coming into the league from highschool or one year college. They need to make players spend three years at the very least in college so they can learn to become adults.
