    Apparently, the Magic’s GM knows how to play poker after all. Good for him. Howard is one of the top 5 players in the league. If teams want him, then offer value for him. By mid-October, Howard will be begging Orlando for a deal.

    I think the NBA would gain popularity if Orl shipped him to Milwaukee. Nobody likes this guy.

  • JML-G

    dwightmare will never end

  • AiRsMiTh

    Fantastic news.

  • NetsRTakingOver

    Dwightmare 3 the Trilogy coming soon

    Orlando must have really enjoyed last year’s debacle.

  • T-Money

    This is on Dwight, why did he opt in and make speeches about loyalty?

  • AiRsMiTh

    NetsRTakingOver. Probably one of the most comical comments I’ve seen regarding the Dwightmare!

  • Gogs

    FFS just Amnesty the dude this is getting boring.(jokes before I get serious reply)

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    This just smells like a bluff.

    “I’m not trading Dwight, even though i am totally and completely sick of him, almost gave him up for nothing but some bad draft picks and Brook Lopez a week ago, but believe me, i am being honest”

  • Red Star

    As long as his DIVA ass doesn’t end up on the Lakers I’m happy!!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Red

    Good, put’em in his place!

  • NetsRTakingOver

    The Devos still doesn’t want to let go of Dwight, but it is Dwight’s fault for optin in. Hahaha Loyalty T-Shirts still selling?

  • http://www.fullc0urtpress.com Kholiday

    All this means is that at some point we will have to sit thru a few more weeks of this madness! SMH

  • NetsRTakingOver

    More like till January @Kholiday

  • eZ

    Bad move, he won’t suddenly commit to signing an extention in charlotte or toronto. The longer they wait the closer his free agency approaches and nobody will need that stupid magic front office. You will never get ‘true’ value for him because there are no comparable big men and no franchise is interested in a superstar swap. His refusal to commit to other teams is what makes the offers less than desired but thats not gonna change later in the year. Take what you can from bk, la, houor atl and ove on. Haven’t they learned from utah and denver?

  • http://www.soundcloud.com/tray-5 T-Ray

    I find this funny how this story came out after Lopez got the max

  • bike

    The new CBA should have incorporated The Diva clause.

  • RIGGS

    lol the magic’s front office are incredibly stupid. Theyre gonna end up with jack sh*t at the end of all of this.

  • DUDE3000

    WHY??!! Is there no end to the dwightmare?

  • Fresh Boirdee

    BS! The Magic tired of all the BS, they are now playing “Who Really Wants Dwight.” … Dwight is out of there by the end of the week.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    4:14 is the troll

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Why are you just trolling by saying my comments aren’t mine? what a boring life you must live. this is like the 5th day in a row you have just claimed my comments are a troll without actually saying anything. When has nbk (me) ever not given his basketball opinion on a thread? #trollbetter

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Yes, we love hearing the drama and seeing Dwight half a$$ it all season. Awesome.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Dumb troll. I’m considering leaving forever. I enjoy this sight and everything it’s about, but this is just stupid.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    As for Dwight, just trade him already. If he wants to be “the man” then go to Brooklyn. If he wants to win and contend then go to the Lakers.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    you suck at acting like me.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Redd

    “sight”+”leaving”. Bad troll job.

  • NetsRTakingOver

    Brook Lopez officially signing a max deal, Nets are out of trade talks with Orlando until Jan I guess haha

  • http://thosefishtacosareforwinners.blogspot.com Chris_Griff_3

    Amnesty him at the end of free agency, after everyone’s already spent their money.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    SLAM, fix this problem. Ridiculous

    6:19, 6:17, 5:21, 5:19, 5:04 are all the troll. You can click my name, if you don’t think this is really me.

  • phil da windmill

    shocked but oh well he ain’t no shaq or wilt anyways so fugg em.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Slam will never address the issue, honestly. This system basically predates iPhones but why update it? We all still use it. Would a boycott send a message?

  • truthteller

    It’s obvious that orlando is doing this on purpose to spite Howard for all the hell he put them through last season! The nets have agreed to take Howard along with all the expensive contracts from other orlando players and yet orlando won’t make the deal? There is no reason why Houston or LA should have been in the mix! Orlando wants to punish him by not sending him to where he wants to go and they are willing to sacrifice their team and even good business to do it! Rule 19 of the 48 laws of power: Know who you are dealing with-do not offend the wrong person!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Redd

    Would a message be a boycott? If we stop commenting then randoms will begin to post stuff they read and not willing to have their own opinion, not to sound arrogant or anything.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    You tweet about me? Interesting.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    naw, that was just to prove it’s not you posting my twitter. then homie asked about it. simple.

  • Ldub

    I would say let Dwight walk next season. I know many people think they should trade for him. But its too much of a mess. Let his salary fall off the books and get some pieces in his place. Let him see how bad FA will be next year when his single desired destination cannot afford to pay him what he wants. And with Dwill, JJ, Wallace and Brook all on big contracts…Dwight wouldnt fit in Brooklyn…just based on money alone. Unless he is going to take pennies and allow Adidas and his other endorsements to be his major source of income.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Redd

    nbk is a less than 1 year old baby. Sh*t just got real.

  • http://www.soundcloud.com/tray-5 T-Ray

    We should boycott because this is ridiculous. This is a f*ckin bball site where we talk hoops and have good conversation about hoops. Nbk you’re troll actually has good bball insight but why comment under someone else’s name? And these random a$$ commenters on here are idiots. They can hardly speak English or even type a proper sentence. How are they going to have an opinion on basketball? Smh I only stay for good conversations with the regulars. You guys know who you are.

    Is that the real Teddy?

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Word T-Ray. Hey SLAM, how about this system: everybody must be a registered user, but if you are a subscriber (or become one via online), you become a
    “sponsored” user. Maybe charge like an extra $1-$3 a month or something and allow us to post with italics, bold, color, whatever. No need to have a profile or anything, just a log in with regular members and sponsors. The extra sponsorship cash would fund any enterprise you need to build the system. The trolls would go away or be forced to register. I know I’d pay to be a sponsor if it gave me some privileges (aforementioned text additions, ability to pick among the alternate covers, etc). Slamily, what do you think?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Redd

    I disagree in that, trolls will be trolls. I used to comment on Chicago tribune sports and they switched to Facebook commenting to stop trolling..it worked but not 100% plus made comments get reduced sadly. You want to stop trolling, then do registeration and track IPs. Shouldn’t cost much because I’m sure they already can track IPs..I mean they’re not that behind..I hope lol.

  • http://www.soundcloud.com/tray-5 T-Ray

    I’m feeling the idea Caboose I wouldn’t mind paying a little. At least it would limit the amount of bs commenting and have more fluid bball talk.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Redd, it’s not the presence of trolls- it’s fun to mock them sometimes- we just want them LABELED as trolls. That’s why we all loved Spanny the Greek Dude. We KNEW when he was trolling. T’was fun.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Redd

    Oh my bad for not getting what u meant, then quite honestly just do simple registration, names can’t be duplicated.

  • http://Twitter.com nbk

    WTF? If you all think my trolling is so stupid and easy to make fun of Caboose, then why did I troll you hard on the Ryan Anderson trade to Hornets thread. Look it up.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Because your trolling is stupid and easy to make fun of.

  • MUBWAR

    is nbk responding to nbk? that’s it. that’s my last joint

    ^What the hell was that

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Sigh, troll gets to me too. Creative. Serioisly Slam, just get a log in system.

  • pposse

    this will be too funny if dwight gets traded to ATL his ‘hometown’ and then after next year he wants out of his ‘hometown’. I hope he puts on a decision like show to go along with it. That will be the ultimate move for Orlando…making dwight “diss” his hometown for what he wants.

  • pposse

    on another note, i guess the Lopez signing coupled with the Magic’s unwillingness to deal right now, opens the doors for the Chicago Bulls to pull off a crazy deal for Howard. We got the pieces, but I don’t know if we want all the drama that Dwight has become!

  • http://slamonline dan

    keep saying it – - straight swap for K Love – that’ll fyck him
