Dwight Howard Comments on Free Agency Rumors

Unexpectedly the Orlando Magic has been eliminated in the first round by the Atlanta Hawks and rumors and speculation are soaring as people question the future of Dwight Howard in a Magic jersey. I can’t seem to get away from people on Twitter and other networks claiming Orlando is doomed and that the Magic All Star player is “heading to the Lakers.” After the Hawks eliminated Orlando in 6 in Atlanta on Thursday night Dwight commented when asked about his free agency and where he’s going. He responded: Continue reading Dwight Howard Comments on Free Agency Rumors

Video:Fight: Zaza Pachulia Head Butts Jason Richardson, JRich Responds

It was yet another dreadful, yawn worthy game between the the Hawks and Magic as a game winning shot by Jamal Crawford with 5.7 seconds remaining clinched the Hawks with the win and 2-1 series lead. Just as the game started to get interesting, things got real serious. As Zaza Pachulia fouled Dwight Howard on the way to the rim, Dwight came down and caught Pachulia with a slick swing  of the arm. This infuritated Zaza and as he showed emotion Captain Save a Heaux JRich felt the need to stick up for his teammate. Bad timing in my opinion as the Magic held a 1 pt advantage at this time. Zaza then got in the face of Jason Richardson and head butted him. A head butt tho?? I wouldn’t have let that slide either. JRich retaliated with a slap/mush to the face and both players were ejected for the remainder of the game. There has also been talk of both players being suspended for 1 or more games. Dwight Howard ended up with a technical at the end of the play. Game 4 takes place in Sunday in Atlanta, and I am hoping Magic can get a win. Check the clip of the fight below

We had them. We should’ve easily put them away.But we continue to let teams come back. It’s going to hurt us if we continue to do this.” – Derrick Rose on the slight win over the Magic

This game was everything not expected, well except for the result. Before the game I spoke with many viewers who thought this would be a skate in the park for the Bulls as the Magic played without Howard and Quentin Richardson due to suspensions. The game was close throughout the entire game and came down to the last seconds as Jameer released the ball that would’ve brought the game into overtime just a milisecond too late. I was able to catch up with the star of the game and front runner for the league MVP Derrick Rose.Rose played the part finishing the game with 39 points.

As a Magic fan I am going to need the Magic took take a chill pill. Last night against the Bobcats Dwight Howard recieved his 18th technical of the season after he shared his frustration after being called for yet another 10 second violation at the free throw line. Who else in the league gets that call? Don’t worry….I’ll wait. Anyway, shortly after Quentin Richardson got in the face of guard and Duke alumni Gerald Henderson. Henderson got the MAJOR MUSH….both hands. In a result, Richardson was ejected. Watch the video after the break.
