I am starting to believe the Magic have “battered boyfriend syndrome”
When Battered Person Syndrome manifests as PTSD, it consists of the following symptoms: (a) re-experiencing the battering as if it were reoccurring even when it is not, (b) attempts to avoid the psychological impact of battering by avoiding activities, people, and emotions, (c) hyperarousal or hypervigilance, (d) disrupted interpersonal relationships, (e) body image distortion or other somatic concerns, and (f) sexuality and intimacy issues.
Additionally, repeated cycles of violence and reconciliation can result in the following beliefs and attitudes:
- The abused believes that the violence was his or her fault.
- The abused has an inability to place the responsibility for the violence elsewhere.
- The abused fears for his/her life and/or the lives of his/her children (if present).
- The abused has an irrational belief that the abuser is omnipresent and omniscient.
Just put that into a basketball perspective that is what is going on between the Magic and Dwight Howard. I have been highly critical of Dwight Howard throughout this whole process, but the fact of the matter he has made it clear 100 times that……..
You can’t keep trying to run back to him, he doesn’t love you anymore.
After several months of trying to trade Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan called the All-Star center Wednesday night to see if he’d reconsider giving him and the Magic’s new regime a chance to keep him in Orlando, a source close to Howard said.
Hennigan, the source said, based his plea on the fact that he was new to the organization and had not been party to the issues that drove Howard to make his trade request.
Team president Alex Martins, who also was on the call, the source said, made a similar plea to Howard last winter when he took control of basketball decisions over GM Otis Smith and coach Stan Van Gundy.
Howard was not willing to change his stance, the source said.
“I already heard that from the other guy on the phone,” said Howard, according to the source.
She isn’t coming back Magic, trade her away and get some new ladies.
She isn’t “Loyal”, she has cheated on you before and will do it again.
