Well, this is certainly a bombshell. A few days ago, there were rumors floating around that Dwight Howard was trying to have Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy fired. And it appears that those rumors were, in fact, true. And, how do we know? Because Van Gundy himself just confirmed it this morning.
Reporter: "Do you believe that Dwight has asked that you be fired?" Stan Van Gundy: "Yes, I know he has."— Howard Beck (@HowardBeckNYT) April 5, 2012
Oops? Howard quickly tried to dispel the notion that he asked Magic brass to fire Van Gundy. But, how could he possibly do that when Van Gundy was the one who confirmed that he did?
What a mess. For the Magic. For Van Gundy. And, maybe most importantly, for Howard. Is this guy trying to make us all hate him? If so, he's doing a hell of a job this season!
