PHILADELPHIA - APRIL 24:  Dwight Howard #12 of the Orlando Magic looks up during a free throw during Game Three of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at the Wachovia Center on April 24, 2009 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The 76ers won 96-94.

Right about now, Dwight Howard's actions make him the best target for an elbow to the head.

Superdumb has been suspended for game six after a seemingly deliberate elbow to 76er Samuel Dalembert's cranium after the Philadelphia 76ers asked for a review of the tape which showed the incriminating evidence.

The incident occurred with 9:15 remaining in the first period of the Magic's energizing 91-78 victory over Philadelphia in game five at Amway Arena last night.

Now, due to the fact that our star player is going to be sitting next to Jameer Nelson and additional Howard elbow victim Courtney Lee on the sidelines tomorrow night, Magic fans are elbowing each other in the head.

Come on, Dwight. You're the smiling fan favorite that is expected to hold a sense of decorum on the court. You're surprising me, and not in a good way. You're letting your fans down, for no reason.

I can see Van Gundy now.
