Dwight Howard Would ‘Never’ Join the Miami Heat

by July 26, 2011

While attending Comic-Con in San Diego to promote a new animated series he’s starring in, Dwight was asked about the possibility of joining LeBron and ’em. Howard isn’t a fan of the idea, at all. From ESPN: “They want to know if he’ll leave the Magic when he becomes a free agent in July 2012 — and whether he’d look good in a Heat, Lakers or Rockets jersey. He said he’s been asked ‘a million times’ about his future since the end of the season. But for now, Howard is having fun off the court — including doing the show and exploring other entertainment opportunities — and looking forward to a busy summer of travel, camps and enjoying life … What about the Lakers? ‘That’s everybody’s question,’ he told the ‘Kick’ audience. ‘I am wearing purple … but that’s Rock’s outfit.’ The Heat? ‘Never.’ Stay with the Magic or leave for free agency? ‘At this point, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’m just enjoying life and taking advantage of being young and being able to travel and do the things that I’ve always wanted to do.’ Will he consider playing overseas if the NBA lockout drags on? ‘Yeah, I don’t want to just sit around and do nothing. That’s just a waste. There’s no telling when the NBA season’s going to start, so if I’m just sitting at home and one day it decides to pop back up and I’m not ready, I’m going to look bad.'”
