Dwight Howard is happy Vince Carter has joined the Magic, blogging that "He’s been telling me for years that he wanted to play in Orlando", but he'll miss Courtney Lee, Tony Battie and Rafer Alston. "He’s going to be a great player", he says of Lee, his best friend on the team. "We wouldn’t have gotten to the Finals without you Skip," he shouts out to Alston. Ang Battie, "Tony was like my older brother here in Orlando."
