Dwight Howard was booed by Magic fans during introductions before his first game back in Orlando. That came as no surprise; Magic fans were likely eager to attend the game just to boo him. What was surprising was Howard’s reactions to the boos. Though he knew boos were coming, Howard still seemed to play off of the hatred quite well.
Howard admitted in a recent interview that his biggest problem was that he wanted everyone to like him. His desire to leave the Magic while not upsetting the city resulted in him changing his mind several times.
On Tuesday, it looked like Howard finally realized that the people in Orlando dislike him, and that he decided to just use the boos as motivation to stick it to his former team. It’s about time he embraced his villain side.
