1) Multiple sources tell David Baumann of Bright House Sports Network that Dwight Howard asked Magic brass to consider bringing on Brian Shaw or Michael Malone as the team’s head coach.

2) Ian O’Conner of ESPN New York writes Dwight Howard has become a supervillain with his latest antics.

3) Would allowing Dwight Howard to get paid what he is actually worth help solve his “spoiled superstar syndrome?” Ethan Sherwood Strauss of Court Vision examines.
