I don’t know Jordan Schultz or his source. There is nothing from what I can gather that would lead me to believe he would make something like this up.
I would be shocked if Dwight Howard sat out the season, mainly because he wouldn’t get paid. I don’t care how upset he is with the Magic or doesn’t want to play for anyone but the Nets no one is leaving $19 million on the table.
Beyond the $19 million he reputation which is already in the trash would be damaged beyond repair. Sponsors would drop him left and right, just no way that Dwight is that dumb.
He maybe dumb, but he isn’t that dumb.
A source close to Dwight Howard tells me that Dwight is fully prepared to sit out the entire 2012-13 season in Orlando.

If on the small chance Dwight does sit out the season, maybe he could spend some time with his 5 secret kids and baby mamas.
