New Los Angeles Lakers acquisition Dwight Howard posted an open letter Sunday in the Orlando Sentinel.
In the letter, Howard said 'to have had the opportunity to play before the Orlando fans for eight years was truly a privilege and an honor'.
Sentinel blogger George Diaz said the letter was 'a joke for Magic fans'.
Howard, a six-time All-Star center who played eight seasons in Orlando, was traded August 10 from the Magic to the Lakers.
