re: NOT CONFIRMED: Howard To Meet With Orlando Ownership And Opt-In At 12:30 EST

At this point, I dont trust a word from anybody until it's official that he either a) re-signed, or b) got traded.

This dude's tweets (in reverse order) since I sent him my challenge (evidently, I am not the only one):

Quote:
Jarrod N Rudolph ‏ @MisterRudolph

Again, I apologize for the delay. The interview will be up in a moment. We're working to get it up now. Thanks for your patience.
2m Jarrod N Rudolph Jarrod N Rudolph ‏ @MisterRudolph

Let me remind fans of the Nets that I won't be fighting with you now or ever. Not interested.
6m Jarrod N Rudolph Jarrod N Rudolph ‏ @MisterRudolph

I know him professionally and personally. I will vouch for his character. I believe he will sign tomorrow.
8m Jarrod N Rudolph Jarrod N Rudolph ‏ @MisterRudolph

He loves Orlando and regrets the way this all has played out. This was never his intention.
10m Jarrod N Rudolph Jarrod N Rudolph ‏ @MisterRudolph

I can say Howard was very remorseful and sounded genuine when we spoke. I don't expect him to have another change of heart.
12m Jarrod N Rudolph Jarrod N Rudolph ‏ @MisterRudolph

Interview will be posted momentarily. Sorry for the delay.

re: NOT CONFIRMED: Howard To Meet With Orlando Ownership And Opt-In At 12:30 EST

These reports are coming from RealGM and Hoopsworld and we already know they lack credibility...even a broken clock is right twice a day, so let's see if what they threw up against the wall sticks.

P.S. I don't believe this guy really interviewed Howard. He apparently refuses to "prove" he actually interviewed him.

That third party source for Sam Amick has me wondering, though.

re: NOT CONFIRMED: Howard To Meet With Orlando Ownership And Opt-In At 12:30 EST

And here's the other side...completely contradicting Mr. Rudolph's supposed interview:

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/76...ion-season-end

Quote:
In a Wednesday night conference call with team officials before Orlando's game in San Antonio, after indications to the contrary earlier in the day, Howard firmly told the Magic he is not prepared to surrender the option in his contract that allows him to become a free agent at season's end.

Magic spokesman George Galante confirmed the conference call to the Associated Press on Wednesday night after ESPN.com, citing sources with knowledge of the call, reported that Howard and agent Dan Fegan clarified their position with Magic CEO Alex Martins, owner Rich DeVos and other members of the DeVos family on the line.

re: NOT CONFIRMED: Howard To Meet With Orlando Ownership And Opt-In At 12:30 EST

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/76...13-sources-say

Quote:
But after the game in San Antonio, Howard again reversed his decision and told Magic officials he wanted to stay, sources said. After mulling it over on the club's post-game flight from San Antonio to Orlando, Howard told the Magic he was ready to sign the waiver right then and there, at about 3 a.m. ET.

The Magic, according to sources, told Howard to continue thinking about his decision and made plans to meet with him and have him sign the waiver early Thursday morning.

"They did not want him to sign the paper at 3 a.m.," one source said. "They wanted him to sleep on it and come back with a clear head in the morning."

Knowing Howard's penchant for changing his mind, one source close to Howard said the Magic should have reacted differently.

"They should have had him sign it," the person said.

I have to report this since the guy (appears to be) right about him staying (but with DwightMare, you never know):

I'm hearing Dwight will sign around 12:30 today. Get ready to go crazy at tomorrow's game. It's should be a mad house.

You should change your settings, I'm still on the first page.

Wait, so he's saying they did deserve this?

Yeah, I caught that too, but didn't comment on it...I had already called him a moron, so the use of a double-negative is totally within concert of moron-status.
