Dwight Howard, make up your mind already!

The NBA season started out with a bunch of questions such as “Will there be a season at all?” and “How are they going to fit all the games into a compressed schedule?” Obviouslym the NBA was able to get a deal signed by the players. But, we started off the season with one huge question:

“Will Dwight Howard be in Orlando by season’s end?”

We still don’t know the answer to that question. Last week, Howard said that he didn’t want to be on the team anymore. Now, after the Magic beat the Heat in OT, Howard wants to stay in Orlando for the rest of the season.

In fact, Howard has an opt-out option for the 2012-2013 season. It was reported that he will not take this opt-out option. This means that he will be in Orlando for at least the rest of this year and all of next year. What he essentially doing is buying the Magic time to find a star to pair with Dwight.

Dwight’s first choice of team? The Miami Heat.

How can you go from being the superstar in a great city to Miami? Could you imagine how terrible it would be to have LeBron, Wade, and Dwight on the same team? There’s something that makes this league run, and it’s not money. It’s competition!!

If Dwight were to hit the free agency market this coming offseason, he would look into the Heat, Clippers, and the Nets.

The Nets have been reported as a popular pick for the Orlando superstar, but it doesn’t look like it will happen (this year) with Howard’s latest announcement.

My take: I think it’s alright that he’s looking for a winner to sign with, but the Miami Heat? I hate when these basketball players try to alter the fate of the league by teaming up to create these unfair matchups.

I think many people would be upset if Dwight went to Miami, because he’s been with the Magic for so long. He’s also been very loyal to them (much like LeBron was in Cleveland). You need competition in any sports league in order for it to be successfull.

Question: how come you only see this type of “Dream Teams” in basketball, not in football or baseball?

  1. Haven’t heard that he wants to go to the Heat.

  2. I think Orlando’s front office is ignorant, as they need to trade him now and get some value for him as opposed to simply losing him to Free Agency.

  3. You can see this in basketball because there are only 12 guys on a team. Too many in football with 55 and same for baseball who has 25 (40) in Sept.

    Hard to have a dream team with 55 players. ..

  4. fantasyfurnace makes a good point about the 12 players on a team only. Basketball’s getting more and more about Dream Teams, which is good and bad for the league at the same time. I just feel bad for the small market teams…
