Dwight Howard has been bothered by people asking him about his future. His contract expires after the 2012 season, and people are wondering if he will stay.
“Yeah, I am annoyed,” Howard said. “I can’t sign a contract this year. I can’t sign anywhere this summer, so why keep bringing it up? Why are people talking about me going any other place right now? Right now is about this season. It’s not about L.A., New York or whatever. I’m really tired of it. I don’t wanna be talking about where I’m gonna be playing basketball next or people in Orlando asking me ‘Are you going to leave us?”’
A magic fan shot him a message on Twitter: “D12 be different. Stay in Orlando. You can own this city. See Jordan and Tim Duncan for examples.”
Dwight responded, “I never said I wanted to leave stop reading the rumors. It’s really stupid. And annoying to be honest. They tryna make something outta nothing I have another yr under my contract before I can sign.”
Do him a favor everyone, and leave the guy alone. He’s done nothing to say he wanted to leave. This is another example of how ESPN makes a story out of nothing. What the heck does it even matter two years.
The Magic are another franchise that has deliberately failed to win a championship despite having the likes of Jameer Nelson and Superman. They have tried to add a 3rd guy with Hedo Turkoglu, Rashard Lewis, Vince Carter and currently Jason Richardson, my hero.
Who knows if J-Rich will be able to make it work? It could, but we just don’t know.
Now, with all that said, I hope he does leave… so he can join the Warriors.
