In a recent story for ESPN the Magazine, Ric Bucher got a chance to give Dwight Howard a few questions and comments from message boards for Howard to answer. Howard had some very interesting to say about his relationship with Stan Van Gundy.
“Howard walked in the room, hugged Stan Van Gundy and denied to the media that he ever told the Magic he wanted Stan Van Gundy fired. Awkward.” Posted on thebiglead.com
HOWARD: “It was very awkward. But you live and you learn. I don’t think I would ever do that again. I don’t know where what Stan heard came from. We talked about it a couple of times. Then we talked about how we both felt, and it was one of the best talks we ever had. We’ve forgiven each other. We’re ready to move on.”
It’s interesting that Howard said they’ve “forgiven each other.” It makes one wonder if we haven’t heard anything from the Magic because they’re attempting to bring both back.
