The Flip-Flop Superman Is Staying In Orlando

Look who just changed his mind for the 1000th time.


He assumes the identity of Superman in public to use his powers on the basketball court so no one will know that it’s really Lebron James in disguise.

What? Dwight Howard has basically acted like the King throughout this whole ordeal.

He’s toyed with the emotions of everyone involved. The fans of the Magic, Orlando management, his teammates and fans of the NBA were all victims of Dwight Howard and his “will he, won’t he” nonsense.

Thankfully, the Dwight Howard free-agent/trade circus has come to an end.

D-12 has decided to sign the paperwork to remain a member of the Orlando Magic through the 2012-13 season and forgo free agency.

The least likely of all scenarios has actually played out.

Dwight Howard will continue to play with the Orlando Magic for at least one more season.


I don’t necessarily care that Howard will remain with Orlando. I’m just glad that I don’t have to hear any more stories about whether he will leave and sign with the Nets or be traded at the deadline or just walk away cold turkey during the summer.

I never truly believed that Howard was worth all of the commotion in the first place.

He’s hands down the best center in the NBA, but what has he done outside of one lackluster trip to the NBA finals to deserve all of the hoopla? You can’t even play him at the end of a close game because of his “Shaq-esque” free-throw shooting.

Call me crazy, but I don’t think all of the frenzy over what he was going to do with his career was warranted.

I’m just glad that I can breath a sigh of relief and know that for at least one more year, I don’t have to think about Howard and his own version of “The Decision“.

“I apologize for this circus I have caused to the fans of our city,” he said. “They didn’t deserve none of this.” – Howard

Duh, Dwight.
