You should be talking about how Dwight Howard has high-jacked the Orlando Magic organization and will force their management team to trade him to the Brooklyn Nets.

There’s no bigger star in sports right now than Tim Tebow. He’s all over the news, billboards, and television. With the NBA Lockout in full swing, even professional basketball players are watching and following No. 15. To the media, Tim Tebow is an angel.
