Tonight, the Magic will face Dwight Howard for the first time. A tumultuous year of questions and indecision will not be remedied or rectified in this one meeting. Apologies and forgiveness will not be handed out. At this point, all the parties are more interested in moving on. Dwight Howard is moving on, recognizing that he made some mistakes, although perhaps not realizing fully what he put himself, his image, the fans and the franchise through, and getting on with the task of winning for his new team. That is all you can ask for a player.  Orlando still has questions though. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel was in Los Angeles on Friday ahead of the Magic to begin piecing together what this first rematch means and where the Dwight-mare finally ended: Not even the upcoming game Sunday night against the Orlando Magic can displace that grin. 'Everything in L.A. has been great for me: the fans, the team, the players,' he said. 'I had eight great years in Orlando, but this is a great situation for me to accomplish all the things that I want to accomplish as a player and as an individual. So there's no need to be ashamed that I made a move for my life. Everybody's not going to understand it, but, at the same time, I only have one life. Nobody was there but my mom and dad when I was born, and nobody will be there when I die. So if they don't like my decision, that's fine.' Howard has found refuge in Southern California. 'I think it was a tough year for him, the whole year," said Lakers point guard Chris Duhon, who was sent with Howard and Earl Clark to Los Angeles in a 12-player blockbuster trade Aug. 10. 'He's even sillier now than he has been in the two years I had been with him in Orlando,' Duhon added. "You can just tell that it's like a weight off of his shoulders and he's moved on and he's onto the next page, the next chapter in his career.' This will be an interesting game for what happens on the court as much as off it.
