Dwight Howard is coming off like a big jerk.
According to his sources, Howard is still upset with Van Gundy confirming Pingalore’s report from earlier this month that Howard went to Magic management asking for Van Gundy to be fired.
On Friday, the Magic had their physical therapist Ed Manalo travel with Howard to Los Angeles, where Howard went to have his back diagnosed.
Dr. Robert Watkins, of Marina del Rey, California, diagnosed Howard with a herniated disk.
After visiting Los Angeles, Pingalore’s sources confirmed that Howard was adamant about joining the team in Cleveland but the Magic asked him to return to Orlando.
Howard would eventually travel to Cleveland. However, Howard sat in the hotel for the game Sunday evening and rejoined the team as they traveled back to Orlando.
“It was strange since that Howard wanted to go to Cleveland and offer support but never made it to the game,” said one of Pingalore’s sources.
Howard would also likely sit out the postseason, according to the source.
Remember when Dwight was the happy-go-lucky muscular guy with the Superman cape? Now he’s got baby momma issues and is acting like a total hoe on the court. It was all good a week ago.
