A Lil Suspect: Orlando Magic CEO Drunk Dialed Dwight Howard And Begged Him To Stay!

- By Bossip Staff

Well, isn’t this awkward?

Dwight Howard is the face of the Orlando Magic franchise, so when he leaves it’ll cripple the team. That’s why the Magic CEO Bob Vander Weide got a little tipsy and acted like a gilded ex and begged Dwight to stay.

Vander Weide confirmed that he made a 1 a.m. phone call in recent days to Magic superstar Dwight Howard, and Howard thought Vander Weide may have been intoxicated. On that call, Vander Weide told Howard how much the Magic wanted to keep him in Orlando. “I was playing paddle with friends and had a couple of glasses of wine,” Vander Weide told BHSN. “Maybe Dwight thought it was inappropriate to talk business after a couple of glasses of wine… Maybe I should have waited until the morning.”

Vander Weide followed up this horribly awkward conversation by promptly stepping down as CEO of the Magic. It’s like he saw the writing on the wall and knew he would be running a team destined for losses and bankruptcy as soon as Dwight skips town. Still, the fact he called and groveled like that is nothing short of hilarious. Have a little pride.
