Dwight Howard may or may not tweet decision over the weekend. Isn’t this fun?

Jul 5, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

That sent twitter buzzing… so then this happened.

Whether or not this was Howard’s fault, the legend of his indecisiveness — and how that draws attention to him — continues to grow.

Meanwhile, most of the basketball world is sick of waiting for him to make up his mind. Also sick are a whole lot of free agents whose potential next deal is held up as Howard makes his decision (teams are holding cap space for him they will otherwise fill).

Janice Carr of the Orange County Register did something other media members have not been able to yet — talk to Dwight Howard. Not that it cleared anything up.

Announcing his choice on twitter is the low-key way to do it, although what Howard should have done is just made the tweet when he was ready, not tell a media member he is going to tweet his announcement. “Hey, follow me closely for the next 48-72 hours!”

But it’s Howard, so what did you expect?

Carr said she got no hints about what he did choose. The buzz right now is that the Rockets are the frontrunners but after that signs are confusing — the Lakers are in or out, Golden State wants in but can’t figure out a deal, Mark Cuban should never be discounted. The Hawks are pretty much toast, but that’s about all we know.

But with Howard, nothing is certain until he puts pen to paper.

      “But with Howard, nothing is certain until he puts pen to paper.”

      More like finger to keyboard, but we get your point, Kurt :)

    “nothing is certain until he puts pen to paper.”

    I think Dwight has proved that statement false by now. After he signs things will remain uncertain…

      Before anyone gets all excited about Dwight Howard’s “Decision” to announcing his next playing destination on Twitter, he just changed his mind and decided he will announce on Facebo….wait! Now he will use Myspace!!! Yes, definetly Myspa….umm…he says he is undecided and will be taking a sabaticle to decide how he wants to make his announcment. UPDATE, he says he is going to take a vacation! He’s going to Disneyla…err…Disney World????

    No classless decision show?

  9. jeff6381 - Jul 5, 2013 at 2:52 PM

    I starting to get tired of this dude me might say he is signing with the Lakers than 2 days from now flip and say he’s signing with the Rockets knowing his indecisive act.

    I don’t know about the rest of you – I’m not a Dwight Howard fan, but this does bring some drama to a pretty boring weekend. Not much else going on and this is doing what sports are intended to do: provide entertainment and something to talk about. And while this is not The Decision, it’s damn close.

    The NBA is creating a show where the top free agents will sit in front of a hat and at the end of the show after all the endorsements have been pushed the player will put in the hat of the team he chooses to sign with.Sort of like the high school kids do with college but Jim Grey and Ahmad Rashad brown nose them for an hour

    The Lakers were such a mess last year. Just seems bizarre to build around a petulant guy like that. I mean, clearly he is one of the most dominant big men in a league that has very few quality centers, but to me he just isn’t a solid foundation for a team. Houston seems like the best fit.

    After all this he better not resign with LA. Talk about blue balls. Get everyone all worked up over another first round exit.

  14. ozymandias121 - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:07 PM

    He’s a lock for the Warriors. Goodbye that joke of a franchise in LA.

    • teambringitstrong - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:18 PM

      Joke of a franchise? That’s rich coming from GSW. You should consider killing yourself.

  15. remyje - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:08 PM

    Fact: Any of the teams Dwight chooses will never win a championship with him on the roster.

  16. allen227 - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:14 PM

    Why don’t all you non athletic reporters quit catering to this overpaid and overrated coward and quit sending out all these worthless stories. He’s a joke, always has been and always will be.

  17. jadaruler - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:15 PM

    I want Dwight in Dallas, but he needs make a decision and let teams move on.

  18. lmoneyfresh - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:24 PM

    It’s really funny that everybody is mad at DH for this. He didn’t tell anybody anything, some reporter blabbed about something they were obviously wrong about. God forbid Howard would take a few days to think over where he is going to sign.

  19. talkingfan - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:37 PM

    Can this just over with, Mr Howard

  20. iceturkee - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    i hear from broussard’s sources that dwine is going to tweet when he is going to take a bowel movement today. geez, can hardly wait….NOT!!

  21. sffan75 - Jul 5, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    I’m as tired as everyone else is with the entire Dwight Howard saga, but why does he have to choose a team right this second? Because we want him to? He’s making a decision on where he’s going to spend his life for the next 4-5 years; give him some time. I wouldn’t want to rush that decision if it was me.

    • lmoneyfresh - Jul 5, 2013 at 5:55 PM

      Agree 100%. People keep acting like Howard waiting a while to think this over is such a disservice to them, especially the sports media. Apparently I missed what the hell it had to do with them? Like you said, big decision and he deserves a few days to make it.

  22. themagicfanguy - Jul 5, 2013 at 4:32 PM

    I wish he could sign a longer deal so I could never hear about his free agency again.

  23. cantonbound13 - Jul 5, 2013 at 4:38 PM

    This is just as bad as the Brett Favre drama that lasted for years.

  24. bucs24 - Jul 5, 2013 at 5:29 PM

    So Dallas on on his radar anymore good,

  25. rosloe62 - Jul 5, 2013 at 5:33 PM

    Is everyone as tired as I am with this circus act? Wherever he goes, they will never win a championship with him on the team!
