Dwight Howard Planning ‘Magic All-Star Weekend’ in Orlando

by October 23, 2011

Orlando residents might not have much NBA basketball to look forward to in the coming weeks, but at least they’ll have some fun from November 11-November 13, during which Magic big man Dwight Howard will be setting up a series of events, including an exhibition game of sorts. Via the Orlando Sentinel: “Promising festivities akin to ‘a Magic All-Star weekend,’ Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard said over Twitter on Saturday that he’s putting together events for Nov. 11-13 that will include an exhibition game that Sunday at UCF. ‘Orlando is gonna love what’s about to happen,’ Howard wrote. A couple of days ago, Howard floated over Twitter the idea of an ‘old-school vs. new-school exhibition game/weekend’ in Orlando, and it appears that he’s following through on his plans. Howard’s manager didn’t immediately return an e-mail message from the Orlando Sentinel. But Howard is offering some details. He mentioned on Twitter that the game will be held on Nov. 13, which is a Sunday.”
