    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard wasn’t exactly receptive to criticism during his season with the Lakers, constructive or otherwise.

    Houston Rockets guard James Harden takes a defensive position against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Oklahoma City

    Well, James Harden isn’t going to end up on Michele Obama’s hip-hop album. But he’s willing to poke a little fun at himself so this Foot Locker ad with Stephen Curry is pretty funny. And since it’s August “pretty funny” qualifies as its own post.

    Jamal Crawford

    When you have a pro-am with your name on it — as Jamal Crawford does in Seattle — you better put up numbers. And while Kevin Durant kind of stole the show (as he tends to do) Crawford dropped 44 and put on quite a display himself. Which you should watch if you need a…

    Jerry Stackhouse, Draymond Green
