Dwight Howard challenges Magic front office

Dwight Howard needs practice at being a ‘superstar’. As of now, based on the recent news on his comments concerning his status as a member of the Orlando Magic, he is all ‘diva’. No, professional athletes are never concerned merely with winning when they make that comment in an interview. Now, athletes want to have total control over a team. Howard in his comments to the media today prove that: “I’m all about change.” “If you’re (Orlando) willing to change and do what it takes to win, then, you know, you’ve got me.” “And if you’re not willing to do what it takes to win, I don’t think anybody here would question anybody’s motives if you want to stay in the same position you are.” The Magic front office has done nothing but ‘do what it takes to win’. The moves they have made though, haven’t worked out.

This is a franchise that only two years ago was in the NBA finals. The Magic have made the playoffs five years running (2007-present). The trade last year for Gilbert Arenas and Jason Richardson was viewed as a blockbuster at the moment to improve scoring around Howard. The Magic even got Hedo Turkgolu back from Toronto last year because of how much he was missed in the Orlando offense. The comments made by Dwight Howard are nothing short of ungrateful. The new collective bargaining agreement can’t hide how much owners and players, even the NBA itself, have a convoluted and distorted point of view on professional basketball. Based on the attitudes of Howard and Chris Paul and not to forget ‘The Decision’ (circus) last year of Lebron James, the players share every bit of fault as to the problems they listed early this year during the lockout.
