Well this new team makes about 12 places that Dwight Howard would rather take his talents to than Orlando. Seriously though, Dwight has been linked to EVERYWHERE from Boston, New York, New Jersey, Dallas to (both) LA and now, Chi-City. Howard dropped another “get the tits out of Orlando” hint today when speaking with the Chicago Tribune.
“If I could play with Derrick right now and God wanted that to happen, it will happen,” Howard told the Tribune. “It has nothing to do with me not wanting to play with Derrick Rose. I love him. That’s my brother.”
Howard disputed the notion that marketing issues factored into his leaving the Bulls off his initial trade wish list. Both Howard and Rose have contracts with Adidas, and some believe the company doesn’t want two signature players on the same team.
“It has nothing to do with Adidas,” Howard said. “In fact, Adidas would love that because me and Derrick have the same guy.”
Shocker…he wants out of Orlando? I wouldn’t have guessed it. Let’s take a look at the teams that have been linked to the games best bigman.
