Default Orlando: Please stay here Dwight!

From the Orlando Sentinel

Be different, Dwight Howard.

Separate yourself from the petulant pack.

Show the world you are not just another self-absorbed athlete stuck in a 24-7 cycle of me-me-me.

Tell ESPN to find programming somewhere else. You don't need your own stinkin' show to tell us where you want to bounce basketballs.

Avoid the Melo-Drama and stay with the Orlando Magic for the rest of your career.
Can we end a new round of flimsy rumors that say you may ditch this small little pond to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers? PS: Another Superman already did that. I thought you wanted to establish your own super hero creds?

Dwight can make it happen. When the romance fades between a franchise and a superstar, the team is the one usually taking heat for not kowtowing to every demand. More money, better players, more luxury suite tickets.

The Orlando Magic haven't done a thing to betray their relationship with you and show their commitment is 100 percent. They've upgraded their roster over the years, bringing in Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu. When the team came up a few games short of winning an NBA title in 2009, the Magic let go of Turkoglu and brought in Vince Carter. And when that lineup failed, the Magic recently blew things up again, dumping Carter and Lewis, brought back Hedo, and adding Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark.

The Magic are rolling now with the new/old guys. There is promise and potential now. Taking out the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics and anybody else is very much a possibility during the playoffs.

Trying to win championships is all about evolving, changes pieces important ones, complementary ones here and there. The Magic have always been about that, Dwight. It's not been about saving money. It's always been about taking risks and having the courage and hindsight to kill one plan if another one doesn't work.

They have been loyal to you. You should be loyal to them.
There are more rumblings again, this one about a possible move to the Los Angeles when your free-agency kicks in July 2012. You're supposed to be smitten by a major market.

Hopefully that's not true Dwight. How lame and predictable. Kobe Bryant will be 34 by then. He's already beat up and past his prime.

You don't' need to go Hollywood, Dwight. The NBA is global. You can be huge literally and figuratively anywhere. Ask Tim Duncan.
Forget Los Angeles Dwight Howard: Unlike Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James and others, Dwight Howard should forget big-city lure and stay with the Orlando Magic - OrlandoSentinel.com

This was not a biased article by no means. lol

This is good and all, but it feels like a guy trying to beg his girl to stay with him even after she cheated on him.
