The Dwight Howard saga continues. He has requested a trade to the Nets from Orlando GM Rob Hennigan. He now claims to “people close to him” he feels he was “blackmailed” by the Magic into signing his “opt-in” clause and delaying his free-agency in March. He wants to challenge the legality of the opt-in clause itself.
Not sure forcing you to acknowledge being the bad guy publicly constitutes “blackmail.” Not sure a leverage-surrendering clause contractually agreed to becomes illegal just because you were dumb enough to use it. What a clown.
Stay tuned for the next episode of “Where Will Dwight Howard Not Be Winning an NBA Title Next Season.”
