Now that the Magic appear willing to oblige Dwight Howard‘s wishes to send him elsewhere, we’re hearing more about Howard’s exponentially growing discontent with the Magic.
We already knew about Howard’s alleged displeasure of Stan Van Gundy. But in recent days we’ve learned about new incidents ranging from the predictable (his reported asking for a trade for the millionth time — or maybe the billionth time; I’ve lost track) to the downright outrageous (the hilarious report about his accusing the Magic of “blackmail”).
And now we’re hearing about Howard reportedly having a physical altercation with Jameer Nelson last season. Oy vey. Here’s HoopsWorld:
Several of Howard’s teammates are hoping for his departure as well. Toward the end of last season, Howard came close to a physical altercation with teammate Jameer Nelson at the Magic’s practice facility. Howard was sidelined with a back injury at the time, but nearly came to blows with Nelson for unknown reasons, according to sour

Stop me if you've heard this one before: Dwight Howard wants to be traded. He'd like to go to the Nets and has thrown in an accusation.
Two years ago, I'd have never thought it possible for a basketball player to emerge from a free-agency blunder looking worse than LeBron James did. This is when he went with his gut during an embarrassing national TV special and took advantage of his God-given right to do whatever he wanted to do.
But in bungling nearly every aspect of his inevitable divorce from the Orlando...
Hard to imagine this is the face of the most desired man in basketball right now. The on and off saga between Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic has taken yet another turn. Sources at ESPN claim that Howard now wants out of Orlando and wishes to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets. Howard apparently met with newly named Magic general manager, Rob Hennighan, on Friday and told...
I hope Dwight Howard has acquired a new publicist/media image consultant. His entire impending free agency is a mess and I suspect it’s going to take a lot to get it back to a decent place. Firing back at reports that state Howard feels the Magic blackmailed him, Dwight is blaming the media and it’s [...]
As far as the Dwight Howard Saga is concerned, Charles Barkley is "sick of hearing about it" and said he told the star "to grow up and make a decision."
In my almost 29 years of existing on this earth, no matter what the socioeconomic conditions may be, there’s always one guy in the crew who is just “that guy.” You see, “that guy” is the person that may or may not be a good dude, he may be extremely smart or as dumb as [...]
How is it that the two best centers in the NBA are also the biggest brats? More news out of Orlando about the chaos that was this past season. Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson, as of today a free agent, almost came to blows last season. Apparently, Jameer wasn’t the only Magic teammate who had [...]
Magic general manager Rob Hennigan says that Dwight Howard told
him in a face-to-face meeting last week that he would like to be
traded, and that his preference is to be dealt to the Brooklyn
Brooklyn would send a re-signed Brook Lopez, MarShon Brooks, along with their first round pick in 2013, 2015 and 2017 to the Magic.
Dwight Howard expressed fatigue of the media using unnamed sources.
Despite trading for guard Joe Johnson, the Brooklyn Nets are still reportedly in pursuit of All-Star center Dwight Howard. A day after sending five players and a draft pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Johnson, the Nets and Orlando Magic are discussing a blockbuster deal that would include Brooklyn trading Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, Marshon Brooks and first-round picks in 2013, 2015...
