Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard is upping his street cred by guest starring on the Disney channel show “Suite Life on Deck.” Also appearing in the episode are Kevin Love and Deron Williams. On the show, twins Zack and Cody live on the SS Tipton and attend high school on board at Seven Seas High. Zack and Cody torment cruse director Mr. Moseby.
In the episode Zack challenges Mr. Moseby to a basketball game but finds himself in hot water (get it) when he discovers Moseby’s half brother is Dwight Howard.
The episode will air this Friday, and luckily the Magic do not play a game the same night!
On Saturday’s Charlotte Bobcats Orland Magic game, a murder suspect was arrested after he was unintentionally seen on the JumboTron. Earlier in the week, Earle Barranco, 24 was spotted on the big screen wearing the same necklace witnesses described to police after Barranco shot and killed a man at Good Stuff Diner in New York City on Oct. 23.
Barranco had been on the run since he murdered his estranged friend Corey Scott after shooting him in the face.
Almost three weeks later, an acquaintance spotted Barranco on the JumboTron at the Bobcats game after recognizing the diamond money bag pendant necklace and reported the sighting to police. The North Carolina State Bureau then planned a stakeout where they arrested Barranco at Saturday’s game.
Despite the excitement, the Bobcats lost to the Magic 91-88.
Orland Magic star and former Duke shooting guard JJ Redick has plans to release a rap album by the end of the year. Redick has been collaborating with Magic teammate Ryan Anderson. The duo have named their rap group James Clay. The name is derived from Anderson’s middle name James and Redick’s middle name Clay.
Redick first came on the rap scene in October 2009, when he shared his aspirations to release a rap album by the end of 2010. When asked about the pending album, Redick told a reporter, “The beat is sick man. It will get your head nodding.”
Redick has had a busy off season. Not only has he been writing for his new record, but Redick got married back in June.
Now Redick may not look like a rapper, but whoever said white man can’t jump?
