Dwight Howard is almost unstoppable individually, but I think we can all have a hand in the argument that collectively with the group of men assembled in Orlando, his only Kryptonite is the NBA postseason.
Even he knows that he cannot survive much longer under the guidance of the Magic, or at least with the tools they have been working with such as Hedo Turkoglu and Gilbert Arenas.
He may have most recently come forward, according to the Orlando Sentinel, about Arenas' future contributions to a better season’s end. But, throwing your head coach under the bus is not exactly screaming “Hey, I’m going to be your guy in the future!”
“I don’t think our coach used him the right way, but I think he can do a lot of great things for our team. He promised me this summer he was going to get himself better, physically and mentally, so he can come back and have an awesome year. …
"I just felt like he didn’t get the opportunity to play his style but also play with me. I think he needed to. I think he got a couple of opportunities to do it in the playoffs, but it was kind of too late. So I think he will be great for us.”
If you are sick of hearing about how useless Stan Van Gundy has become, raise your hand. Now that millions have announced the need to get him out of the franchise already, maybe the Orlando organization can take a step in the right direction of keeping Dwight Howard on board.
Still, there are a lot of things that Howard must take into consideration if the Magic team does not make the moves he thinks are vital to his own success. Things such as where he would land and what moves would be the least conducive to his ultimate goal.
There are more than a couple things I have in mind that would end Dwight’s career before he can escape an ending similar to Karl Malone’s.
