On Saturday night, I learned that Dwight Howard spits on the ball.
Every time a Warriors player went to the line to shoot two, after the first free-throw try, the Orlando Magic's massive center asked the ref for the ball, spit on it and flipped it back to the ref. Seriously.
"I'm just blowing on it," Howard fibbed with a smile when I asked him about it after the game. "I'm putting a spell on them."
It could be worse, I guess, considering Dwight's penchant for whipping it out.
In all seriousness, this disgusting act warrants action by the league office. No fine or suspension, just a reprimand. It's flu season after all.
