Orlando Magic superstar Dwight Howard says he had NOTHING to do with the team’s decision to fire head coach Stan Van Gundy … telling TMZ, “I hate to see anyone lose their job.”
Howard — who’s still rehabbing from back surgery in L.A. — was out in Beverly Hills this morning when we asked how he felt about his coach’s recent termination.
“Me and Stan … we had our ups and downs … but for the most part we had one goal … to win a championship in Orlando, but we fell short.”
When asked about speculation that he had a role in the decision to can Stan, Howard told us, “I’m glad [Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins] confirmed I had nothing to do with it.
