This is going to get blown out of proportion, no matter how much I try to tamp it down here. Even if I tell you this kind of thing happens all the time.

Deron Williams went to dinner with Dwight Howard Wednesday night, reports the Star Ledger (via Eye on Basketball). The Nets are in Orlando to get hammered by play the Magic Thursday.

“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 today. “We’ve been friends since the Olympics, and so we go out to eat, have a bite.”

Let’s not be naïve — at some point future plans and if they might play together came up. Williams may have tried to sell him on Brooklyn, they may have talked about Dallas. Heck, they may have talked about Cleveland for all we know. Okay, probably not.

But mostly they probably talked about families and hobbies and whatever else they share in common. Like their gold medals and if they want to get another one next summer. This was not high pressure recruiting and no decisions were made. They talked like friends talk.

These kinds of dinners happen all the time among players. It’s really not a big deal.

What I really want to know is, what did they have to eat? Pho? Steaks? Roast duck in a nice cherry sauce? Dang, now I’m hungry.

    David Stern sentences them both to life!!! In Orlando and Jersey. Any potential trade sending one of these guys to the other team will be void by the Mr.Stern.

    Ummm I know the magic are better than the nets but to say they are going to Orlando to get hammered is kinda dumb,,, ESP cause Orlando is on the decline,,, just seemed like a weird comment

      seriously? The Nets get hammered by everyone don’t they?

    Probably talking about how much money they are going to sign for in Dallas. Just as Mark Cuban to trade Lamar Odom back to the Lakers for his trade exception.
