Can Twitter really keep up with Howard and predict where he'll land? Recent speculation on Howard is that he's leaving Los Angeles and finding a home somewhere in Texas.
Sources: Dwight Howard unlikely to re-sign with the Lakers. Dallas and Houston the favorites. Main issue w/Lakers is Mike D'Antoni's system— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 27, 2013
Haven't you already heard this before? The Dwight Howard saga continues, and Twitter has spiraled out of control. From shopping for homes in Houston to a variety of "stay" campaigns in Los Angeles, here's what Twitter has to say.
#StayD12 "Dwight, please don't leave Los Angeles! We love you here."
After further review, the Howard jersey at the Beverly Hills Hotel appears to be fake. Eric Pincus, a senior writer for Hoopsworld, let the community know that the photo from the Lakers' Twitter account was just a figment of their imagination.
I'm home - no, Dwight Howard's jersey is not on the Beverly Hills Hotel - it was obviously a stunt from @Lakers twitter account— Eric Pincus (@EricPincus) June 29, 2013
#StrayD12 "Dwight Howard is in Houston looking at houses."
Boom noted Houston Real Estate authority. RT @THEREALALLENOU: Dwight Howard is in Houston looking at houses today.— Matt Jackson (@MJ4Sports) June 28, 2013
Meanwhile, thanks to Howard's Instagram account, he was at UCLA playing knockout during the time of the rumor. Unfortunately, the "realtor" from Houston deleted his tweet after he either made it up or realized he was wrong.
Contrary to reports, Dwight Howard isn't in Houston looking at houses. He's in LA, working out at UCLA. Not sure how that rumor started.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) June 28, 2013
#Dwight2Dallas "Dwight Howard really likes the Mavericks. Dirk talked to him. Cuban will get it done."
Don't know if this bodes well for Mavericks fans, but Deron Williams also liked Dallas last year. Specifically, he enjoyed playing at the American Airlines Center. Now that Howard has said he likes the Mavericks, don't look too much into this.
Twitter is a very fun place to divulge speculation. You always need to exercise caution when coming across a rumor. Be it true or not, here's a look at the rest of the Twitter induced rumors.
Rumors of Dwight Howard and Brandon Jennings heading to Dallas.— John Cox (@CheetoManyak) June 29, 2013
Brandon Jennings is a player that has intrigued that Mavericks for quite awhile. However, there are no reports that confirm a Jennings-Howard arrival in the Big D.
NBA rumors saying Atlanta might sign Dwight Howard and CP3..— Hispanic Stinkmeaner (@alphachico) June 29, 2013
Dwight Howard can't sign until July 1st. Hopefully Mavericks fans don't take too much offense to this tweet.
Dwight howard was traded to Clippers for Jordan Butler Bledsoe— NeverFound (@_Point2me) June 28, 2013
A dream scenario for Clippers fans, but Howard hasn't been traded. This tweet is clearly false.
nets are trying to do a sign and trade for Dwight Howard.... probably not gonna happen but billy King is trying— Will Haussmann (@WillHaussmann) June 29, 2013
The last time the Nets were looking to trade for Howard was in January. Approaching July, the Nets have made moves for other players.
im hearing all sorts of heat trades now... Dwight Howard for Chris Bosh, James Jones and Mike Miller..— Matthew Miller (@iRepMizzou) June 25, 2013
It would be nice if the Heat got a center. But, this tweet has no credibility.
There is a ridiculous rumor that Rondo contacted Josh Smith and Dwight Howard about teaming up in Boston. That would be a disaster.— Joon Lee (@iamjoonlee) June 28, 2013
Unless Danny Ainge has a trick to bring in players now, the Celtics are in rebuilding mode. Teams are currently in trade talks for Rajon Rondo.
