Shocker! Dwight Howard Reportedly Wants To Be Traded. This Time Because He Doesn't Mesh Well With James Harden


Sheridan Hoops- Dwight Howard is extremely unhappy in Houston playing second fiddle to alpha dog James Harden, multiple league sources tell SheridanHoops.com. And with the Rockets underachieving more than any NBA team, look for them to try to move Howard later this season.

And the destination that makes the most sense is Miami in a trade centered around Hassan Whiteside.  It makes so much sense, in fact, that I will go so far as to predict that Howard will be wearing a Miami Heat uniform by the end of February.

This prediction is based upon the fact that the Heat, as colleague Michael Scotto is reporting today, are trying to get the Sacramento Kings to part with DeMarcus Cousins, offering a  package of Whiteside, rookie Justise Winslow and cap filler to make the salaries match. Chicago and Boston also are actively making offers for Cousins.

A complete surprise out of Houston today, as Dickhead Dwight Howard is again rumored to be upset with his NBA team and wants to be moved.  This comes after Dwight was rumored to be leaving the Magic, changed his mind and re-opted into the last year of his contract, then forced a trade from the Magic to the Lakers and then left the Lakers as a free agent for the Rockets. All in the span of about five years.  Unbelievable.  If Dwight had to attend college for four years, he would have transferred like three times.

So now there are all these trade rumors floating, with Dwight ending up in Miami looking like a real possibility.  I fear and want this to happen at the same time.  There is a chance Pat Riley will do whatever black magic mumbo jumbo that he usually does with superstars and turns Dwight into a machine and another Pat Riley team wins a championship.  Or there is a chance that Dwight continues to act like Dwight in Miami, even more so because of the fact he will be in FUCKING MIAMI, and Riley kills him in cold blood. So there are two very different scenarios that can play out here.

To be honest, I am still kind of pissed at Dwight for showing the world all that promise during the 2009 NBA Playoffs, as he took the Magic to the Finals. He obviously played out of his mind and then started to fade a bit and then turned into this weird flip flopper we see today.

Dwight also robbed us of a LeBron vs. Kobe Finals matchup, complete with those puppet commercials.  You can hate either or both of those players all you want, but the commercials were funny and that Finals would have been extremely dramatic.


However, we have had some fun at Dwight’s expense.  Like the time Kobe called him soft after he left L.A. for Houston:

And when the most mild-mannered superstar in the league kept yelling that Dwight was a pussy:


And when he said he was a champion after the Rockets lost to the Warriors in the playoffs:

And of course the time Stan Van Gundy made Dwight look like a lying asshole in front of the media without even trying:


Good times!  I can’t wait to write this blog again in two years when Dwight tries to force his way out of Miami or wherever he ends up.  And again, Dwight better watch out for Pat Riley if he ends up in South Beach.  Because Riley strikes me as a guy that would bury another human alive like in Casino if he felt it was warranted.
