"I'm not trying to run behind nobody like Shaq or be behind somebody else," Howard told the Orlando Sentinel Monday.
"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. But I can't do it alone. Not only do I need the right teammates, but I need the city behind me. That's the only way it's going to get done. We can change this small city that we have -- this small market that we have -- and we can make it a big market."
"As of right now, I'm a part of the Orlando Magic and I plan to be here," Howard told the newspaper.
"And I want the Magic to do whatever they can to make sure that we can get our city behind us. That's the only thing that I want to happen: just to have the city behind me and the support of our fans. I never said I was leaving. I never, ever thought about leaving. That's basically where my head is right now. I never said anything to them (the Magic)about what my plans were because that's not what I'm focused on right now."
Does that mean LA is out of the question? Well the good news they won't have cap space to sign him,but they have a big man in Bynum they could use to trade for Howard. Boston will have cap space in 2012,and you just hope that he gives us a chance to talk with him in 2012.
