Dwight Howard comes under fire in GQ’s humor piece entitled The Least Influential People of 2012. The Laker Center was included in the publication’s “collection of people so uninspiring that we should round them all up and stick them on an iceberg.” Ouch.
So what makes Howard one of the least influential people of the year? GQ cites his back and forth trade discussions with the Orlando Magic as his offense.
“I’ll stay in Orlando if you fire my coach! Or maybe I won’t. Or maybe you could fire the coach and then build a statue of me made out of frozen butter,” said GQ’s parody Howard.
GQ can have their laugh. Dwight Howard and his fans will wait until the NBA playoff season in 2013. We’ll see who’s laughing then.
