The revamped Houston Rockets will take on the young and rebuilding Orlando Magic in preseason action on Wednesday night, marking Rockets center Dwight Howard's first visit to the Amway Center with his new team and his first trip back to his former stomping grounds since a dominant turn with the Los Angeles Lakers back in March (that, naturally, came with its own brand of nonsense).

It's only a preseason game, but it's still headline news when the once-beloved center comes back to a town that's long since stopped finding him especially charming. So Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel sat down with Howard to discuss all that's transpired for the 27-year-old big man over the past year, headlined, of course, by his move from the Lakers to the Rockets. In the process of a discussion about how the myriad changes he's experienced have affected him, though, Howard offered a pretty odd backward-looking comment about, of all things, his old number:

Howard said he was disappointed that, last February, after the Magic acquired Tobias Harris in a trade, the team granted Harris' request to wear No. 12, Howard's old number.

This is just like a man who treats his girlfriend like [expletive], leaves her, then cries when the woman moves on. There's a saying that if a child never experiences adversity and pain in his/her life, they stay a child.

This is the worst part of it all:
 

(Howard likely didn't know, and perhaps still doesn't know, that Harris wanted to wear No. 12 as a tribute to a close friend who had died of leukemia at 17 years old.)

I'm not sure what world Dwight Howard lives in where he thinks he left Orlando on good terms so the fans and franchise should respect what he did there.

If they didn't even retire Shaq's number why his, almost the same number of accomplishments anyway.

When you think about it no one has worn number 8 for the Lakers since Kobe changed his number to 24. It's like an unofficial retired number  :laughing:
