Considering what we all went through as Nets fans last season with the Carmelo Anthony shenanigans, or rather the "Melo Drama," it's been hard to fully feel 100% about anything. So, with the current Dwight Howard situation, what the Orlando Magic media are calling a "Dwightmare," the last couple of days has been a rollercoaster to say the least.
The high we must have all felt a couple of days ago with the information from ESPN's Chris Broussard about D12 wanting to come to the Nets was quickly mucked up. Revelations of possible tampering charges and the Los Angeles Lakers keeping enough away trade pieces (specifically Andrew Bynum) from their three-team trade involving the Houston Rockets and New Orleans Hornets that would send Chris Paul to L.A. had to temper, if not totally dissolve any joy we might have all felt about the tangible possibility of Superman coming to town.
Well, it's been tweeted by one of the more reliable, if not the most reliable, NBA writers that Dwight Howard does indeed want to come to the Nets. Tweet from Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski:
That tweet was soon followed by confirmation from the Orlando Sentinel's Joshua Robbins that Magic GM Otis Smith acknowledged the trade request:
So, have hope once again Nets fans! Woj's information is usually rock solid and he has a strong track record in his reporting of various NBA news. Personally, I'm at about an 85 out of 100 right now. If D12 signs, I'll be at a 1,245,493,309.7.
