Dwight Howard’s Charity Game to Feature Penny Hardaway, Vince Carter

Penny and Vince are just two of the big names expected to hoop in Dwight’s exhibition charity game. 11 others have also made a commitment to show up. Per the Orlando Sentinel: “Dwight Howard apparently encountered little difficulty convincing current and former Orlando Magic players to participate in his charity exhibition game Nov. 13 at UCF Arena. Kevin Samples, Howard’s manager, said that barring unforeseen conflicts, 18 people have committed to play, including former Magic players Vince Carter, Penny Hardaway and Steve Francis. Samples said the D12 Foundation also has received commitments from Gilbert Arenas, Trevor Ariza, Carlos Arroyo, Matt Barnes, Brandon Bass, Earl Clark, Drew Gooden, Rashard Lewis, Mike Miller, Jameer Nelson, Jason Richardson and DeShawn Stevenson. Those commitments are in addition to Ryan Anderson, Chris Duhon, Quentin Richardson and Daniel Orton, who have told the Orlando Sentinel directly or through their agents that they expect to play.”

    This would have to be the worst collection of players to participate in a professional sports exhibition game of all time. *Bill Walton voice*

    Steve Francis, Penny, Vince and Gil — between them all, they might have 1 set of good knees.

    Sick line-up – better than the same boring pick-up games we’ve seen all summer. Anyone failing to understand the epicness of this lineup kindly proceed to the history books and report back.

  • robb

    VC is not a HOF c’mon.

  • mike

    i agree that this might not be the best “CELEBRITY” game…. but as an orlando magic fan, this sounds absolutely great… if nick anderson , dennis scott, horace grant, t mac and DARRELLL ARMSTRONG played this would be even better. GO MAGIC!!

  • dma

    who thinks vc isnt going to the hall of fame someday…. GTFO here yes he is an underachiever but the man is THE greatest ingame-contest dunker ever. a prolific scorer and is the only reason the raptors still play in Canada

  • Kevin Moylan

    Now that Penny’s Sneakers are BLOWIN UP!, they want him and his still ballin Skills…He should still be in the NBA.

  • thegreatestforwardever

    T-mac and shaq need to play as well. Maybe not shaq….. but tmac has too.

  • thegreatestforwardever

    and grant hill too.

  • True Magic Fan

    This is fricken awesome. I wish I still lived in Orlando. I bet the tickets are only going to be for the 1% ;) too. Charity? If I didn’t have bills to pay and mouths to feed I’d be there. Too bad it won’t be on tv either. Maybe someone should write Brighthouse to cover it and charge for Pay-per-view so us simpltens can catch it.
