08:06 AM ET 05.11 | An open letter to Dwight Howard tried to clear up confusion that the local paper wants to run him out of town: "Do you think we really want to run you out of town? ... Do you really think we want to hear public-address announcer Paul Porter utter these words: 'And starting at center for your Orlando Magic -- DANIEL ORRRRRRRR-TON-TON-TON-TON!' Dwight, believe me, there is nothing we want more than for you to stay in Orlando. I mean, seriously, what would occupy the Sentinel's pages if you left? We can only write so much about Tim Tebow's latest underwear commercial. ... Yes, we have dedicated a lot of stories, blogs and commentary to your pending free-agency, but so has ESPN and a lot of other places. What do you expect? We are a one-horse sports town and you are our Secretariat."

Otis better find away to bring Golden State to Dwight, or Dwight should find Golden State.

If he goes west he can at least see the finals, doesn't mean he will get a ring, but he will be close.

Once Pop is fired this summer. And Mike Brown is hired.

He could come to S.A., and win 2 rings before TD retires while learning from the master.
