Did Orlando Magic fans really believe that Dwight Howard would sign an extension with no clear indication that his own version of the “Big 3” was on board? Well, in case you believed he would, he has come out and stated that reports of an extension are untrue.
“There’s no truth to that,” Howard told reporters in Birmingham, Ala., where he was on hand to help tornado victims.
Howard shot down the report and said, “The biggest thing right now is everybody understands I have one more year left. I’m keeping my options open, but there’s no other place I’d rather be than Orlando. I want them to understand that. “
Dwight may not follow in Shaq’s footsteps to L.A. (Looks like Jim Buss isn’t willing to part with Bynum anyway, welcome to Kobe’s new world) but I’m sure he’s watched the playoffs with everyone else and he can see what the Heat managed to do in one season. Which way do you really think Dwight’s leaning?
Come on, he put out a kid’s album and created a puppet for himself after Kobe and LeBron’s Nike campaign. Isn’t it obvious. :shrug:
