Dwight Howard tribute video: Magic to honor divisive center Wednesday, according to report

Dwight Howard - Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The team will show the video sometime during that night's game against Houston, Howard's new team.

Throughout their 25th anniversary season, the Orlando Magic have paid tribute to their former players and coaches who have since moved on to new teams. They've done so by showing video highlights of their Magic tenures when their current clubs visit Amway Center.

That celebration will continue Wednesday when Dwight Howard and his Houston Rockets visit, reports John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com. Orlando's all-time leading scorer, rebounder, and shot-blocker left the team under acrimonious circumstances--first by demanding a trade, then by waiving his right to free agency as a sign of good faith, and finally by requesting a trade again--but the team won't let the tenor of his departure affect its decision to honor Howard on Wednesday.

In addition to leading the Magic in several key statistical categories, Orlando enjoyed its greatest on-court successes during Howard's time there, including its lone NBA Finals win in 2009.
