It appears that Orlando has housed both Mickey Mouse and a dirty rat.
Newly hired Orlando Magic GM Rob Hennigan has reached for both the bottle of aspirin this week-and the radioactive file cabinet that holds his special stash of Kryptonite.

If you want a PG-rated version of the saga of Superman Dwight Howard, you won't find it in the NBA. Dwight Howard has taken the cardinal virtues of faith, hope, and goodwill, and tossed them into the shredder with contracts, agreements, and legalities.
Numero Uno has become his new mantra.
Yes, Dwight Howard has hoodwinked a generation of children into thinking he has a brain, a heart, and courage. He comes off as the man without a team or a scruple, let alone a gray cell.

If anyone has tugged on Superman's cape and peeked under the Lone Ranger's mask, it is Dwight Howard.
