Dwight Howard isn't going to China. He isn't going to Europe. Not to play basketball, I mean. The only way he's going overseas is on vacation. Period.
If you believe he's serious about playing over there, well, shame on you. He's posturing, for the union or himself or both. But he's not serious. No way, no how.
Howard is a liar when it comes to his career. A few months ago he caused Orlando's heart to flutter when he vowed to stay in Orlando:
"I'm not trying to run behind nobody like Shaq or be behind somebody else," Howard said in May. "I want to start my own path, and I want people to follow my path and not just follow somebody else's path. I want to have my own path, and I want to start that here in Orlando."
And then this is what he said in June:
I'm going to become a free agent next year.
One thing in May, something else in June. And here we are in July, and Howard is saying a whole 'nother thing. About playing in Europe. Or China. Or Venus. Wherever.
And you believe him?
That's your problem.
