NEWS: Dwight Howard and Deron Williams eat dinner

Dwight Howard needs to get traded soon. Because otherwise, we're all going to have to take note of his eating habits, among other things.

Via the Star Ledger, Howard told reporters that he had dinner in New Jersey with Deron Williams when the Magic came to town to play the Nets. Why is that at all something we should care about? Well, because of that whole thing where Williams wants Howard to come to the Nets and the whole thing about Howard maybe wanting to go to the Nets.

You're telling me Williams and Howard didn't talk about that stuff over some food? They didn't talk about their future plans? That's why this is a story, despite it completely not being a story. If that makes sense.

Howard tried to downplay it though.

"Since he’s been in the league, every time he comes to town, we go eat dinner and just kick it,'' Howard said after the Magic's shootaround. "We’ve been friends since the Olympics, and so we go out to eat, have a bite.

"[Williams] wanted to be silly and joke about it, but I said 'No, this is not the time. Let’s just go eat, and then go have a good game against each other tomorrow.' That’s it," Howard said.

Williams on the other hand wasn't sure how to handle the situation. When asked, he answered, "I don't even know -- I really don't."

Understandable. I could see how you could be unsure of whether or not you had dinner with a 6-11 man with giant shoulders the night before.

If you recall though, there was quite the stink about a supposed meeting the Nets had with Howard right before the end of the lockout. The Magic reportedly were going to file tampering charges, but Howard adamently denied the report, as well as the Nets. Dinner among friends is legal though.

I guess the big question is, what did they have? If it was steaks, that's a Brooklyn thing, right? Seafood would hint towards Orlando, no? We need these details.

Urgirl-  At least my dream had SOME credibility lol-  Gortat and Robin Lopez for Dwight Howard???  Not even a feasible dream!  Nash for Williams?  trade Old Nash for young prime Williams... no and the Lakers taking WHO??? Channing Frye and Morris for Pau?  ok ok ok, i went too far by saying it was my dream to have Dwight and Williams, but at least the players i was throwing out there are assets!  Your fantasy doesnt even make sense  :(

How can it be that the articles on thiss blog were more interesting and informative during the lockout when there was no basketball being played? Since the season finally started a week ago, I've read more fluff and non-story articles on this blog than ever before. Is this the Eye on Basketball blog or the Eye on Bulls--- blog?

Bolt While we are dreaming I have a better trade.  suns send Nash to NJ for Williams.  Gortat and Lopez to Orlando for Howard.  And to finish it off suns send Channing Frye & rookie Morris along with a 1st roud pik for Gasol.  Your new suns line up.  Howard, Gasol, and Williams.

Hmmmm... Perhaps they were discussing how they BOTH want to go to the LAKERS!!!!  (i can dream dang it)  Lets say Orlando gets Bynum (they will get nothing if they wait) and maybe some picks, and New Jersey gets Gasol for Williams... that will put Howard, Kobe and Williams (the Lakers much needed starting PG) in one of the Largest media markets in the country!  I smell rings if that ever happened :0)
