With All-Star Weekend’s magnificent machete fights behind us, NBA fans can go back to focusing on the only thing that matters: Jeremy Lin. And after that, they can also wonder, “Hey, what’s going to happen to Dwight Howard?” Because with the NBA trade deadline just two weeks away, we’re about to head face first into the shallow end of the unsubstantiated rumor pool. Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkoglu for Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol? Sure. Because the Lakers have formed an empire on stupidity.
But Magic fans haven’t given up hope just yet – well, I have, but I’m a natural pessimist – and they’ve begun the 6th stage of Superstar Departure Denial: song writing. Local musician Jeff Wilson (HUGE fan… *wank wank*) organized some local fans, including the Fat Guy (but not Old Sweater Vest Guy, which is disappointing), for “Let’s Fight for Dwight.” If anything, it’s effort.
Stay tuned for my debut Magic song, “Let’s Hit Otis with a Torpedotis.”
