If You’re the Magic CEO, Calling Dwight Howard when you’re Drunk won’t Compel him to Stay
On Tuesday, Magic CEO Bob Vander Weide retired, which wasn't a big deal. That was before everyone discovered the reason for his early dismissal.
Apparently Vander Weide has a good relationship with Howard and is extremely consumed with Howard ditching the Magic and setting the franchise back a decade. The story goes that Vander Weide may have been drunk off his ass one night and called Howard at 1 A.M. Vander Weide commented on the incident, “I was playing paddle with friends and had a couple of glasses of wine. Maybe Dwight thought it was inappropriate to talk business after a couple of glasses of wine… Maybe I should have waited until the morning.”
Yea maybe you shouldn't drown your sorrows in several glasses of shiraz and then pathetically call your star player like he was an ex-girlfriend who dumped you in college.
