Orlando Magic Ask Fans if They’ll Buy Tickets Once Dwight Howard Leaves

It’s generally assumed that it’s only a matter of time until the Orlando Magic trade Dwight Howard (or foolishly let him walk away for nothing next summer as a free agent), and the team is now hilariously surveying season ticket holders to see if they’ll continue to buy game tickets with the superstar center no longer in town. Per CNBC: “Magic season ticket holder survey asks: If Dwight Howard leaves, will you renew? (via @ebayticketshop): ‘If Dwight Howard leaves the Magic, I will not renew my season tickets’”

    David stern cannot complain about this. Orlando is not a small market team. They were just lazy and didn’t get any help. I hope he comes to the Lakers and gets a better future

  • Jack

    They should rephrase it to…if Dwight Howard leaves, and is replaced by Brook Lopez (at half the cost) + prospects, will you renew?

    This really is pathetic, the franchise have become desperate. It’s a damn shame..

  • silebyboy

    If they are real Magic fans who support the team through thick & thin they will renew. If they are fickle and only bought season tickets to see Dwight in the first place then of course they wont.

    @golakeshow Orlando is def a small market team. It’s not a big city at all. It just has disney world there.

  • Jono

    its not the first of april is it?

    Wow, I’m a magic fan and even I can’t defend this stupid act.

    Man this franchise is looking weak on this. “fuk a b*tch, dont let a b*tch fuk you”. Trade the clown and stop acting like a broken hearted teen ffs.

    When you watch your local news and they go over the weather on a local map, that is your media market.

  • bull22

    this the reason why the nba needs a franchise tag that will basically cripple the other franchises playing mind games to get a star player and also penalize the player financially. dwight howard was my second pick for MVP
    last year, and with his antics iam so glad this BUM has not gotten the award…

  • robb

    That’s the most pathetic thing I’ve read in months.

  • bull22

    @robb pathetic is bozos like you who support clowns like this that cry because there is no star players around them to hold their hands… there are still those fans that give props to players like nowitzki,durant and rose who so far have manned up and led their franchise even when their teammates have not live up to expectations or have not had really good teams… bring the facts brother or stay under a rock please….

  • young c

    This is like your girlfriend asking you “If I get fat, will you still love me?”.

  • robb

    @bull22 lol WTF are you talking about?

  • http://www.t-mac.com/tmac/index unf*ckwitable

    @bull22, your an idiot dude, i mean it, you’re really f*cken dunmb.

  • Jack

    The real question is: “Will you still buy season tickets if DH stays and keeps posting 5 pts. / 5 rb. games while he sulks cause he has no help?”

  • zero

    man,Im a magic fan but thats not a good survey..

    If dwight will not play his best this season better trade him now..

    get the I think rumored 3 team trade and get Lopez and Gerald Wallace..who knows after our bad contracts we can be a title contender again without Dwight.

    Please dont do what the Cavs did.

  • http://slamonline.com datkid

    @ unf*ckwitable these are things we realized months ago….

    “Dear Magic season ticket holder. When Dwight leaves we will ask you to come to the remainder of this seasons games, dressed in black. We will also cancel all cheerleader halftime shows.. Also please take note of the little tattoo shop, near the east arena-entrance. They will tattoo a smal teardrop on your left cheeck free of charge”

  • eZ

    In other news…Did you guys see that Big Baby up and under move last night? Boy, the future looks bright! : D

  • theedit

    Dwight Howard is a weak ass cry baby with no offensive game whatsoever.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    SLAM, please don’t let bull22 ever post again please…

  • robb

    @bull22: you seriously can not be that stupid.

  • marc

    lmfaoooooo @bull22 im laughing at you calling someone else a bozo for no reason.

  • MaxIsNative

    And in unison they yelled, “Hell no!”

  • bull22

    thats all you brainless idiots know how to do, gang up on people and call them idiots or dumb because i disagree.. but yet none of you can bring out any facts, glad to see how you guys all potty train each others egos to make yourselves feel like a special somebody here.. hahahahahahahhaha

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    normally when a group of people are calling someone stupid, it’s because that someone said something stupid, not because of a gang up mentality. What is the more obvious fact that your being stupid in this instance, you defend yourself by calling everyone else an idiot for calling you out (fallacy), right after you started this whole debacle off by calling someone who wasn’t even talking to, or about you, a “bozo” and then you wrap up your stupid frustrated comment (at 11:02) using a sh*tty insult, and laughing hysterically (via internet laughter) at your own words. smh
