Only Laker fans remember Chris Duhon last season because he came over in the Dwight Howard trade.  Only Magic fans remember Chris Duhon in the years before the Dwight trade because he was getting paid $4 million a season to average 2.8 points and 2.3 assists a game.  Other than his pretty awesome “Travel Dance,” you are going to have to go back to his career year in 2008 with the Knicks to remember Chris Duhon doing anything notable on the court, but with all that said, Duhon is still in demand and targeted on and off the court.

The 76ers, who happened to lose by 30 last night against the Nets, were supposedly interested in signing Duhon last month and this past weekend, Duhon was intentionally hit by a car after getting into an argument with the driver in an Orlando parking lot garage.  My first take was that some Magic fan wasn’t happy to see Duhon back in O-Town but here’s how the event supposedly went down according to the Orlando police.

 According to the police report, Duhon and his brother-in-law, Julio Hernandez, were walking on the level 2C of the parking garage when the driver of a black Lexus started honking at them to get out of the way.

Hernandez told police as the Lexus passed by, the driver rolled down his window and some words were exchanged.  Then, police said driver stopped, got out of his car and argued face-to-face with Duhon.

Hernandez told officers that he separated the driver and Duhon and that he and Duhon kept on walking and the suspect got back into his car.  As Duhon and Hernandez got about twenty feet away from the Lexus, Hernandez told police the driver accelerated towards them. Hernandez said he was able to get out of the way, but Duhon was hit.

According to the report, Duhon landed on the hood of the car and his head hit the front windshield.  The former Magic player was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center by ambulance.

Duhon claims to not remember anything that happened or anything that he did although he plans on pressing charges.  That familiar story shouldn’t shock any Orlando fans.

Despite all the negative comments about Duhon’s production, I always thought Duhon looked like he was having a good time on and off the court and it’s hard to hate on these awesome photos.
