Dwight Howard has nothing but love for Orlando.
The former Magic center took out a full-page ad in Sunday’s Orlando Sentinelto thank fans for their support. It reads:
To play the game of basketball in the NBA is a blessing and to have had the opportunity to play before the Orlando fans for eight years was truly a privilege and an honor.
Words cannot express the love that I have for Orlando. With your support we have done great things in this city from hanging banners to impacting our youth.
Although my career with the Magic has come to a close, my love for the city and the people that make it beautiful will never end.
The ad comes nearly one month after Howard’s departure from Orlando. Given the reaction after he was traded to the Lakers, perhaps he was waiting for things to cool off a bit.
Well, here’s what some Orlando fans had to say about the ad:
The Lakers visit the Magic on March 12. It should be interesting.
