Orlando Magic News & Notes: Howard Says Nothing New

Philip Rossman-Reich of Orlando Magic Daily explains why Dwight Howard is saying nothing new:

We have heard this before. Dwight has talked with Van Gundy about his negative approach with his players and using constructive criticism. There is no denying that Howard and Van Gundy have made a pretty good team.

Still Howard has ultimately one goal. And this was the point painfully missing in the Esquire interview. Dwight wants to win a championship. That is his ultimate goal on the court and this is the biggest thing that will not change. He can do all the icon stuff from anywhere.

Our buddy Adam Koscielak over at Sun-N-Gun has a charter that tells us something else we already know – Dwight Howard is really good.

Per Josh Robbins, an Orlando nonprofit is going to help game-night workers:

Scott George, who co-founded the Community Food & Outreach Center in Orlando, was staggered to learn about how badly some ushers, ticket-takers and game-night workers at Amway Center are hurting because of the work stoppage.

“Now they’re down on their luck, and we can’t just sit and be idle about this,” George said. “We can’t do much with the negotiations in New York City, but we certainly can help the 1,000 families who don’t have jobs because of this.”

Dan Savage of OrlandoMagic.com looks at Patrick Ewing’s coaching style:

He’s definitely learned from some top notch coaches, including Pat Riley, Jeff Van Gundy and Stan Van Gundy. So, which one of their demeanors would he mirror should he take on a head coaching gig?

“They say great minds borrow wisely,” Ewing explained on Magic Drive Time with Dante Marchitelli. “I had the opportunity to play for a lot of great coaches and also coach under a lot of great coaches. So, I’m going to borrow from each and every one of them and then come up with my own style.
