At this point, nobody really knows where Dwight Howard will end up next season or before this season is over. In fact, there is a good chance not even Howard knows. We’ve all heard rumors about the Lakers, Nets, Knicks and more recently the Clippers. Although Deron Williams would love it if Superman would join him in Brooklyn next season, former Knicks legend Patrick Ewing has lightly cautioned Howard to stay away from the Nets.

“Most of the fans will still be Knicks fans,’’ Ewing said according to the NY Post. “Brooklyn is a great town, great city. It’s New York. But most of the people, like most people going to Nets games, are Knicks fans. They’re going to have their work cut out for them to try to change the culture.’’

Did I say former Knicks legend Patrick Ewing? What I meant to say was current Orlando Magic assistant coach Patrick Ewing. It’s no secret Ewing wants Howard to remain in Orlando — as he should. However, if we know anything about sports fans it’s that most of them go whichever way the wind blows. There are certainly more Knicks fans in New York than Nets fans and the Knicks have a more defined history, but winning can change that in a hurry.

If Howard joined Williams with the Nets and the team started racking up wins, the fans would come crawling out of the woodwork. In fact, a rivalry between the Nets and Knicks would probably make basketball that much more exciting and popular in New York. But hey, you can’t blame the big guy for trying.
