In a way I wouldn't blame him if he leaves to be honest.

I wake up to find that the Heat have won

Didn't expect that at all, now we need to finish the series.

Apparently he wants to move to a "bigger" market and that means LA or NYC where the big bucks are. Be interesting to see what happens.

Let's face it the moves the back office made this season to improve the team have backfired pretty spectacularly. I still like some of the pieces they brought in but as a team they're a lot weaker, especially defensively (apart from Howard).

Haven't seen it, but from what I've read it could've gone either way but the Heat were stronger in OT (true, the C's were pants in OT, but there you go). Will catch up with it on NBA Tonight later on. Unlikely we'll progress now, can't see us winning three on the bounce

Have only just seen the second half highlights from Game 3 the other day. Cant believe Rondo got a steal with one arm and then dunked it, Bosh is an embarrassment at times.

I cant really see a 'big market' team being able to both entice Orlando to trade him, or them having the cap room to eventually sign him to what will inevitably be a maximum deal. NYC.. Can't see his interior defence and explosiveness in the post being needed with Amare there, they need to focus on developing a deep bench and getting a young PG who can be a 10+ assist guy per night than to add another star to go with Melo and Stoudemire. Lakers.. what can they offer in a trade? Bynum and Odom for Howard? Pass. Plus, having watched Shaq walk out on them for LA, Magic ownership must be wary of ripping the heart out of the fanbase by letting their best player since O'Neal walk to them again.

Perhaps he could be the marquee guy Prokhorov wants in Brooklyn to pair with D-Will and Lopez, but again it's a question of matching salaries and packaging a decent enough offer to get Orlando to listen. Howard is pretty stuck because Orlando has no financial or sporting reason to get rid.

Chris Paul might go to the Knicks.

The Magic need to handle the Howard situation very carefully.

You never know, pull it back to 3-3, and in the 7th game we'll be low on confidence and you'll be the absolute opposite. But that better not happen!

Would be Shaq all over again. Was gutted when he left for the big market all those years ago.
