That Magic aren’t the first team to go to NYC and party it up the night before playing the Knicks.
The game was in the evening, so it would be a stretch to say that was the reason they were blown out. What wouldn’t be a stretch is to say now that Dwight is back, the sense of urgency to win isn’t there anymore.
Dwight doesn’t take it that seriously, so why should his teammates?
Sources spotted the Magic’s Glen “Big Baby” Davis and Jason Richardson partying until the early hours. They started out dining in the private wine room of Philippe New York. Then the pair joined Dwight Howard — who got a shout-out from the DJ on the loudspeaker, spies said — Chris Duhon and Quentin Richardson at Greenhouse during R&B singer Dawn Richard’s EP release party. The players were seen ordering bottles of Champagne and raged in the club until around 3 a.m.
If you are a great player like Dwyane Wade you can party all night and then drop 30 on a team.
If you are Big Baby Davis and Chris Duhon the results are a little different.
Just remember Dwight still hasn’t signed long term.
