Teammates Tuning Out Dwight Howard?
The Magic will never respond to (Dwight) Howard again, and that’s on him. They’re lost in a brutal five-out-of-six-games debacle, and Howard’s public proclamation calling out Magic teammates last week has compounded issues. Despite his inability to separate the get-me-out-of-town Dwight and the I’m-your-leader Dwight, the organization knows one thing for sure: They’re the same guy.
“No need to point the finger,” Howard lectured on Monday night.
Yes, well, he’s done that. And that’s how he’s losing these Magic so fast – and why he’ll never get them back. No matter how dominant of a player, no matter how superior of a talent, the world’s best center has forfeited the right to talk to his teammates about commitment, professionalism and playing hard.
