Magic Trade Rumors: Kris Humphries Could Be Wrench in Potential D12 to Nets Deal

Oh, the power that Kris Humphries wields over Dwight Howard, the Orlando Magic and the Brooklyn Nets.

According to Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears:

Why is this a problem, you ask? 

According to ESPN.com:

The Cavaliers already have 2011 lottery pick Tristan Thompson to man the power forward spot for years to come, and likely wouldn't be interested in committing to Humphries for so many years.

Where are the Corleone boys when you need them?

Seriously, if this is the only thing holding up the potential three or four-team deal that would send Dwight Howard to the New Jersey Nets, then somebody needs to sit down and have a nice little chat with Humphries.

All kidding aside, Humphries needs to look out for himself. I don't blame him for wanting to get the most out of his position of leverage. 

He should. 

Will Howard end up in Brooklyn this summer?

In an era when big stars are being catered to in ways that would make Red Auerbach cringe, it's ironic and appropriate that a "little guy" could be the wrench that potentially causes the Howard to Nets deal to go up in smoke. 

It's not like Humphries doesn't give just as much of himself to the NBA as Howard. He probably gives more. He deserves to have just as much of a chance to get what he wants as Howard.

After all, isn't this entire ordeal of Howard's own doing?
