Howard: God Wants Orlando to Win Title

by June 01, 2009

Dwight and the Magic will be looking for divine intervention over the next couple of weeks: ”When we run, defend and rebound, we can defeat anybody. That’s the mentality we have to take into the next series,’ Howard said from the postgame podium. ‘If we do what we can do best, we can beat anybody.’ Earlier, in the locker room, I had asked Howard to give me one or two reasons I should consider picking the Magic to defeat the Lakers. ‘God’ was his answer, which was met with the counterargument that the Lord probably has better things to worry about than who wins a basketball game, and besides, religion and politics are usually best kept out of sports stories. ‘That’s the reason, I’m telling you,’ Howard replied.”
