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

Annoyance has been a common theme ever since the hoopla surrounding Dwight Howard’s impending departure from the Orlando Magic became a hot topic months ago.

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...

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."
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 [...]
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 [...]

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...
