DWIGHT HOWARD SAYS HE WANTS TO BE A CLOSER!

I nearly pissed my pants for the first time since an infant. Okay, a toddler. Okay, a pre-teen. It's none of your business. But you would too if you heard what I heard this morning. Dwight Howard said that "He wants to be a closer..."

I know, I felt the same way. All year, the hot debate about the Sixers amongst famous dimwits has been about the lack of a go-to guy in the waning moments of games that has reared it's ugly head again.

A few nights ago, the 76ers lost by one point to the Clippers with an opportunity to win it but failed to even get a shot attempt. Tom Sunnergan over at Philadunkia has his take on what might have been said in the locker room after that tough loss that delayed the entry of the media for almost 30 minutes following the game.

But just to seduce the Dwight Hype, how awesome is it that Dwight is seeking the position that the Sixers have available? Devil's advocate: Is the Sixers lack of a closer a strength because of the defenses inability to focus in on one guy? If so, does Dwight to Philly sacrifice that?
