the announcement was totally different than the bird/magic documentary on HBO. As a huge Magic Johnson fan, I enjoyed it. It showed perspective of how it affected the people around him at the time. Kinda weird not hearing from Isiah Thomas considering that they were supposed to be close friends at the time. The gay comments post announcement must've killed the friendship entirely.
Ric Bucher is about as reliable as a 20 year old Jaguar, but he's reporting that Orlando will let Dwight fire everyone if he re-signs with them this summer. This is insane:
"One source close to the situation told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher that the Magic have promised Howard that they will add a quality player before Thursday's deadline and that Howard can decide the fate of both GM Otis Smith and coach Stan Van Gundy at the end of the season if he signs an extension."
If I'm Howard, I leave Orlando just based on this rumor alone. Because if Smith and/or SVG get fired, everyone will look at Dwight. Regardless of whether it really was his call. And you know how he likes being the good guy.
