Over the next few weeks Orlando Magic Daily will be taking a look at the things that went right and wrong this season as Orlando ended its season with a disappointing first-round loss to Indiana.
In late March, I decided to undertake a little project. The Dwight Howard maelstrom had calmed down and I wanted to find a way to recap the whole thing. I started a Storify of just about every Dwight Howard post I (and others) had written since the end of last year.

The Ten Least Valuable Players of the Year
Dwight Howard- Orlando Magic (Gold)
- How can a top MVP candidate become the league’s least valuable player? Well actually it is quite simple in this case, as Howard completely sold out his team, questioned his teammates and wanted to fire the coach, all while holding the team hostage with trade demands...
Most former NBA players simply go through the motions in order to receive a head coaching position. After a stellar playing career, all that's needed for most is a couple of seasons on an esteemed proven coach's bench to gain experience. After putting in the time, most men get an opportunity.That hasn't been the case, however, for Patrick Ewing, perhaps the greatest...
