Dwight Howard's return to Orlando Tuesday has become a little more interesting. The Lakers center's ex-teammates were disappointed when Howard told a Los Angeles TV station that the 2008-09 Magic squad he led to the NBA Finals was "a team full of people who nobody wanted, and I was the leader, and I led that team with a smile on my face." Howard later sought to clarify that statement, explaining that he meant the Magic were underrated and overlooked underdogs -- and that he meant no disrespect. But the damage was done, as J.J. Redick, Jameer Nelson and Rashard Lewis all criticized Howard for his comments.
