Per TMZ, who has video of Dwight Howard, Howard has spoken with Magic management, his teammates and Magic Head Coach Stan Van Gundy during the team’s playoff run.
Howard said he was “sad” and he felt like he was “in jail” because he can’t be there for his teammates.
Clearly, Howard’s talks with Van Gundy may come as a surprise after Van Gundy said he was told Howard asked Van Gundy be fired as Magic head coach.
