It's a little strange to us that Dwight Howard is still reportedly talking about being traded. We understand that he's got less than a year left on his current contract and that he has to focus on his future. But just in case he hasn't checked out the NBA standings lately, his Magic are currently ranked third in the Eastern Conference—ahead of teams like the Hawks, Heat, Knicks, and Celtics. So we're not sure why he's still making such a push to get out of O-Town. But, according to sources close to Superman, the Magic center has added a new team to the growing list of teams he'd be willing to join through a trade that already includes the Nets, Mavericks, and Lakers. And that team is the Clippers.
"He's been watching them a lot," the source says. "He's intrigued by the Clippers."
So are we, Dwight. The thought of you playing alongside Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan is crazy. Lob City 2.0! But, we also hope that you realize that right now, at this very moment, you're playing on a pretty good team, too. And you might want to try appreciating it a little more instead of keeping one eye on your trade wish list all season long.
