08:07 AM ET 08.30 | Dwight Howard has set out on the road again, possibly drawing even more ire in his former NBA hometown. Two weeks after he originally was supposed to host a kids basketball camp in Orlando -- a camp he withdrew from, citing the need to remain in Southern California to rehabilitate his surgically repaired back -- Howard has traveled to China. The former Orlando Magic superstar is visiting China as part of his annual promotional tour to the Far East for adidas. ... Dan Fegan, Howard's agent, deferred to adidas officials when asked why Howard flew overseas but did not appear two weeks earlier at his Orlando day camp. In a statement issued to the Orlando Sentinel, adidas officials said Howard was cleared to travel "just last week."

It's tough w/ Cleveland when he makes that place his home for the offseason and Lebron trashed them on national tv.

I'm pretty sure Howard is keeping his Orlando house. There hasn't been any news that I'm away of that it's on the market.

Nothing.

You're right. The title of this thread may have been "Howard's slight to kids" but he owes nothing to the city of Orlando.
