Howard said he was disappointed that, last February, after the Magic acquired Tobias Harris in a trade, the team granted Harris' request to wear No. 12, Howard's old number.
"I just think that despite whatever happened, there was a lot of things that I did and that we did as a team, and that number was special down there," Howard said. "And I was a little bit upset about that."
(Howard likely didn't know, and perhaps still doesn't know, that Harris wanted to wear No. 12 as a tribute to a close friend who had died of leukemia at 17 years old.)
Let's see what else Dwight Howard is disappointed about in Orlando:
- Dwight is disappointed the city of Orlando hasn't changed it's name to Dwightville.
- Dwight is disappointed that the Orlando Magic just didn't fold after he left for he could be their lasting memory.
- Dwight is disappointed the city of Orlando hasn't built a statue of him in a Superman costume for every corner of the city.
The only word I can use for Dwight Howard is oblivious. He's freaking oblivious as to why people in Orlando and Los Angeles hate his guts. And he's going to be oblivious in a few years when Houston starts hating him. I would love to live in whatever fantasy land Dwight Howard lives in.
