Glen Davis Taunting Dwight Howard In Orlando Return
Much has been made of Dwight Howard’s return to Orlando, the place he made his home in the NBA prior to being dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers. The return is tonight, and the Orlando fans have been making their emotions knows, with plenty of booing aimed at their former franchise center.
Many of the Orlando faithful hate the way that Howard handled his situation with the Magic, and how he ran head coach Stan Van Gundy out of town. It seemed like Dwight was changing his mind every other day on where he wanted to be, and Orlando fans surely got sick of it after a little while.
While the booing from the crowd is expected, I’m sure Dwight Howard didn’t expect one of his ex-teammates to lead the charge against him. That’s right, Glen “Big Baby” Davis has been taunting Dwight Howard in his return. The trolling began with this tweet earlier in the day:
What would you do if you seen Dwight Howard walking the street ?

Big Baby went on to retweet a bunch of responses, with a wide variety of answers. Then, Big Baby took his taunting to the court. Note, Glen Davis is injured, and is not actually playing.
#Magic PF Glen Davis has been chirping at Dwight from the sideline. Both very hot with one another. Dwight turned at bench 3 times already.

Dwight Howard and Glen Davis are exchanging words. Davis was yelling from the bench, and Howard fired back on his way back to huddle.

This would certainly be a lot more fun if Glen Davis was actually playing. That way, he and Dwight could really get into it. But for now, we’ll just have to settle with the chirping from the sideline. That itself is pretty entertaining.
