Dwight Howard

  1. How about a couple dunks on Vine, including one over Jordan (in poster form)

    Andre Drummond

    I know, I just want the NBA season to tip-off tonight as well, enough with the waiting. What are we going to do, discuss the Dwight Howard season with the Lakers for the 5,493, 672nd time? So to kill some time, how about a couple of dunks recorded on Vine. Here is Andre Drummond throwing…

  2. D’Antoni on running offense through Howard: “I think it was all (politics)”

    Oct 29, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Dwight Howard

    If you haven’t heard, Dwight Howard wasn’t happy in Mike D’Antoni’s offense, and the feeling was pretty mutual. What, you heard that already? Okay, during the preseason this whole storyline has been overplayed more than “Blurred Lines,” but as the season tips off tonight, the Lakers coach decided to answer a reporters’ question in a…

  3. PBT’s 2013-14 NBA season predictions… it’s not all Miami

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:08 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    The last couple years, it has felt going into the season that the road to an NBA title went through Miami. And it wasn’t going any farther. This year it feels far more wide open. Make no mistake, the road goes through Miami and they are saying all the right things about defending their title,…

  4. What to expect from LeBron and the Heat?

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship.  They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan.  The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  6. Commissioner-to-be Adam Silver is a big fan of advanced stats

    Oct 28, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    Deputy NBA commissioner Silver speaks during an announcement that the Toronto Raptors will host the 2016 NBA All-Star game in Toronto

    If you fear that the NBA is being taken over by people who just love advanced stats… well, you’re right. Come February 1 Adam Silver will be the Commissioner of the NBA — and he loves advanced stats. Silver was at the early days of the SLOAN Conference at MIT (almost an annual convention of…

  7. Will the Nets or Rockets make a Finals splash?

    Oct 28, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Flash back to April 26, 2012. The Nets closed the season with their six straight loss, missing the playoffs for the fifth straight year. The Rockets picked up a meaningless win that day, but they had just lost seven of their previous eight games to ensure they’d miss their third straight postseason. Both teams had…

  8. Report: Rockets to release Marcus Camby

    Marcus Camby

    If there’s one element of professional sports people consistently overlook, it’s how significant and unavoidable aging is. As players get in to their 30s, their production declines. The later into their 30s, the more drastic the decline. Of course, there are exceptions, and people cling to those, because the exceptions are far more visible than…

    Oct 26, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The first quarter of the Rockets’ preseason finale against the Grizzlies on Friday was far more eventful than the team would have liked. Early on, James Harden left the game with a knee contusion after being fouled on a three-point attempt by Quincy Pondexter. He did not return, although the injury was not believed to…

  11. Tracy McGrady watched the Lakers play, feels bad for Kobe

    Yao Ming & Kobe Bryant Attend NBA Fans Appreciation Day

    Lakers fans could have watched their team’s preseason win over Utah Tuesday night with a sense of optimism. Jordan Farmar looked good in the second half running the offense, Wes Johnson looked comfortable in the system on his way to 14 points, Xavier Henry was attacking, Jordan Hill looked solid in the paint. You could…

  12. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 23, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Last season: For the first time in his career, Dirk Nowitzki missed a chunk of the season due to major knee surgery. Dallas started 12-15 without their star German then promptly dropped 8-of-9 after his return, putting them in a deep hole. The result was the players grew “.500 beards” they let grow like they…

  13. Kevin Love brags about winning “the ‘White Guy’ award”

    Oct 22, 2013, 6:23 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The NBA’s annual GM survey, analyzed by Kurt earlier today, contained few surprises. Who will win the championship? The Heat, as usual. Who will win MVP? LeBron James, obviously. Who is the best center? Dwight Howard, of course. Who’s the best coach in the NBA? Gregg Popovich, surely. Which player makes the most of limited…

  14. D’Antoni on saying Lakers would score 110 a game: “I was on drugs back then”

    Oct 22, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike D’Antoni just wants to run his system his way again. He’s been mocked for that system by some fans who say it can’t win a ring, but two facts remain: 1) Back in Phoenix with the right personnel (a younger Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire, plus Shawn Marion and others) they won 54 games…

  15. Houston’s point guard battle still interesting, up in the air

    Oct 22, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    BASKET-US-TAIWAN-TPE-NBA-PACERS-ROCKETS-LIN

    Monday night the focus around the Houston Rockets was how Omer Asik and Dwight Howard would play together. And the answer was Asik was really rusty and so the whole thing was awkward, but it’s too early to tell how it ends (probably with an Asik trade). However, I still find the point guard battle…

  16. NBA.com GM survey predicts another big season for Heat, LeBron James

    Oct 22, 2013, 11:22 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    The annual NBA.com GM survey is pretty much a spot check on the conventional wisdom around the NBA. It’s not the place you see daring picks or gain deep insight. It’s generally a lot of guys picking the favorite. This year’s survey shows the conventional wisdom is “good luck beating LeBron James the Heat.” In…

    Oct 22, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

    Houston Rockets Media Day

    We bring this to you for a couple of reasons. One is we love a good alley-oop, and James Harden with Dwight Howard running on the break with him put together a nice one here. The other is to point something out — Dwight Howard has played well this preseason. He didn’t put up big…

  19. Kobe says he was ‘fighting back tears’ following ovation from Staples Center crowd after surgery

    kobe crutches game 4 ovation

    The vast majority of days that I work in arenas covering live events, I am not subjected to filing a game story on deadline. It’s by far the worst part of the industry, and it’s what many of the best writers covering the NBA face on a daily basis out of necessity as part of…

  21. Dwight Howard says he left Lakers because he had to do what was right for Dwight

    Oct 16, 2013, 11:24 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Personally, I’ve moved on from what Dwight Howard did last summer. What I want to know is if he has grown from two years of turbulence around him (turbulence largely caused by him), if he is healthy, if he can take the steps he needs to if he plans to lead Houston to a title.…

  22. Report: Warriors, Bogut talking contract extension

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season in the playoffs the Warriors defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Bogut was on the court and was the anchor in the paint. Look at it this way: When Bogut was on the court the Warriors defense was close to the Bulls regular season defensive numbers, when he sat they…

    Last season: It was supposed to be yet another year spent contending for a championship for a storied Lakers franchise that already has 16 of them. L.A. loaded up with free agent talent in Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, and was on paper the team most believed would stand in the way of a second straight…

    Jeremy Lin wasn’t the only one putting on a show in the Rockets’ preseason win over the Pacers in Taiwan. Dwight Howard finished a couple of alley-oop dunks, the second one being the more impressive of the two on the pass from Terrence Jones and the quick hops from Howard to catch it and finish.…
