God loves the Orlando Magic, says center Dwight Howard. Again.
Or to put it another way, God hates the LA Lakers. And LeBron James.
Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com is tired of Howard’s Godtalk:
Why, Howard was asked, should the Orlando Magic be picked by the media or others to defeat the Los Angeles Lakers?
“God,” was Howard’s response.
He apparently wasn’t joking…
And here we are again. Another athlete unwisely sticks God into a place where She doesn’t belong.
God? God is the reason the Magic are going to win? God cares about who wins a basketball game? Really? Really?
Freeman gets a nice zinger in there, too:
If God really favored Howard and the Magic, God would make it so Howard connected on more free throws.
Once again, I find myself rooting against Orlando. And after they lose, a persistent reporter will ask Howard why God wanted his team to lose… it’ll be excellent television.
