The writing appears to be on the wall -- literally, on the wall. Orlando Magic Daily is the premier online destination to get your daily fill of all things Magic. Now overshadowed by our Florida foe the Heat , we think we're not too shabby ourselves and that the future is bright for the Magic.
Visit Orlando Magic Daily Dwight Howard may never wear an Orlando Magic jersey again, even if he is still on the roster when training camp opens in October. Howard may not get to that day, but the disconnect between Howard and the Orlando franchise appears to be that deep -- and, perhaps growing. Jordan Schultz of Huffington Post Sports reported that Howard is contemplating sitting out the entire 2012-13 season in Orlando. Twitter / 206Child: A source close to Dwight H via kwout That would be something different and would surely cause more people to detest Howard more than they do now. It is not clear yet whether Howard has contemplated sitting out because of a distaste for dealing with the Magic or because his injury is more serious than everyone initially believed. It might be a combination of the two. The bickering and posturing for positive press is certainly going to take place once the divorce is final. The Magic and Howard are sure to split if this report is true. It seems that last gasp from new Magic general manager Rob Hennigan reportedly made last week to persuade Howard to stay on and give the new regime a chance was truly that, a last gasp. Howard, if you believe certain reports, is tired of the way the Magic have treated him since he suffered his injury. That seemed to be confirmed by a series of DMs sent to Magic fan Markee Randolph (@MagicMarkee) from Dwight Howard's twitter account. In these tweets Howard seems to confirm a lot of the frustration that has only been whispered in Magic circles about the way Orlando treated him after he opted in and particularly after his injury. Whether or not you believe everything written there -- and certainly some of it is posturing as everything is, even if it is genuine -- the feeling appears to be one that has some legs, especially considering Schultz's report alongside with it. Of course, Howard himself has still not said a word to the public since a TMZ interview on a Los Angeles street during the Playoffs. Until he clears the public record everything will be public speculation. While the silence appears to haverekindled hopes that Howard and Orlando can have some kind of reconciliation, it appears from these reports that the ship has sailed and it was nothing but a hopeful dream. The Magic and Howard are destined for a divorce. There is no getting around it now. Read more great Orlando Magic content at Orlando Magic Daily
