Dwight Howard Has Asked For Stan Van Gundy To Be Fired Multiple Times, According To Report

It may appear that the divide between Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy and star player Dwight Howard has existed much longer than many people had previously known. A report from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski says that the star has asked that Van Gundy be fired repeatedly since last summer.

If this report does turn out to be true, it doesn't look very good on Howard's part. Van Gundy on the other hand has seemed to have dealt with this situation quite well during the offseason and the lockout. The Magic are in the playoffs and are looking to make a deep run this season, but these distractions could torpedo what was once a promising season.
