Dwight Howard spent eight seasons in Orlando going from franchise hero into one of the most reviled players in the league. And for that he thinks his No. 12 jersey should be in the rafters evidently. Sigh. Via the Orlando Sentinel Howard said he wasn't very happy when his former team allowed Tobias Harris to wear No. 12 which of course was his number in Orlando. "I just think that despite whatever happened there was a lot of things that I did and that we did as a team and that number was special down there" Howard said. "And I was a little bit upset about that." As the paper notes Howard likely is unaware that Harris wears No. 12 to honor a friend to died of leukemia at 17 years old. Oof.
