Dwight Howard reportedly ‘nearly came to blows’ with Jameer Nelson during season

Dwight Howard Jameer NelsonNow that the Magic appear willing to oblige Dwight Howard‘s wishes to send him elsewhere, we’re hearing more about Howard’s exponentially growing discontent with the Magic.

We already knew about Howard’s alleged displeasure of Stan Van Gundy. But in recent days we’ve learned about new incidents ranging from the predictable (his reported asking for a trade for the millionth time — or maybe the billionth time; I’ve lost track) to the downright outrageous (the hilarious report about his accusing the Magic of “blackmail”).

And now we’re hearing about Howard reportedly having a physical altercation with Jameer Nelson last season. Oy vey. Here’s HoopsWorld:

Several of Howard’s teammates are hoping for his departure as well. Toward the end of last season, Howard came close to a physical altercation with teammate Jameer Nelson at the Magic’s practice facility. Howard was sidelined with a back injury at the time, but nearly came to blows with Nelson for unknown reasons, according to sources. The two players had to be separated.

There comes a time when you trade a superstar not because you have no chance of re-signing him but because you just want to get rid of a headache.

    your actions re making yo look bad in the  public eye, and that is not an area you

    Well, someone else trash is a gem to others so be it. I say Howard don’t be stupid, go to a team had a chance to win the championship. In New Jersey, you be the center of attention for not even winning 50% of your games. Believe me, once you feel like the clippers, the perrenial loser’s. you’ll regret again again and again…. So join the clippers instead….

    This guys elevator doesn’t go to the top floor.  If he was anymore stupid they’d have to water him twice a week!  Dwight is a legend in his own mind!  This whiney crybaby will eventually end up being a cancer to any team he’s traded too…just like he was in Orlando.  AMF Dwight!

    DWIGTT TALKS ABOUT LOYALTY BUT DOESNT KNOW THE MEANINING OF THE WORD. ORLANDO GAVE HIM  MILLIONS AFTER HE CAME OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL. PROVIDED EXPERT TRAINING WITH EWING TO MAKE HIM A BETTER PLAYER. THE FANS SUPPORTED HIM 100%. A NEW STADIUM BUILT FOR HIM AND THE TEAM WAS BEHIND HIM YET HE DISRESPECTS EVERY ONE BY ASKING TO BE TRADED TO BROOKLYN. I NO LONGER LOOK AT HIM AS A MAN BUT AS AN IGNORANT MONEY HUNGRY CRY BABY. GET RID OF THE CANCER MAGIC.

    This guy is a total azz hat. In the words of the great and almighty Kobe,”ship his azz out!” He is a disgrace to the sport and his family.  He is also a liar and a hypocrit. This is the same cat that came out and said he wants the ball down the stretch but his dumbazz can’t hit a freethrow.  This is the only warning you”ll get Brooklyn and whomever else is vying for his services.

    You only told half the story… what about the massive contract they gave to the likes of Rashard Lewis? dropping Vince carter in to add the extra boost? Not replacing Jameer after it was clear the shoulder injuries changed his projection? letting hedo go when he was still effective then bringing him back a shell of himself complete with overpriced contract? Drafting JJ Redick at what 11? Gilbert arenas… I could go on… seeing this for years while being told we will do everything we can to support you then ALLOWING your rep to be drug under the ground and not owning your part could drive any MAN to much worse…

    Dwight better watch his step in Brooklyn, if that’s where he’s going?
    The Russian doesn’t care about egos because nobody’s is bigger than his!
    I wonder if Dwight still goes out with Jimmy “henchman” Rosemond’s daughter Dee Dee?
    That’s a Brooklyn connection he’s had for awhile…………….
