Dwight Howard

  1. Dwight Howard, Marc Gasol engage in preseason shoving match (VIDEO)

    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…

  3. 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…

    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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

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

    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…

    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…

  10. James Harden with the alley-oop to Dwight Howard (VIDEO)

    Oct 17, 2013, 10:06 AM EDT

    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…

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

    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…

  13. 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.…

  14. 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…

    Kobe Bryant

    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…

    New Orleans Pelicans v Houston Rockets

    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.…

    Oct 12, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The Rockets with Dwight Howard are going to be one of the more fascinating teams to watch as we enter the upcoming NBA season. With the drama of where Howard will play finally behind us for the first time in two years, and with the former Defensive Player of the Year expected to be 100…

    The American version of Linsanity lasted only a few weeks. It was a perfect storm of on-the-court opportunity mixed with the kind of frenzy you only get in New York, but it subsided almost as quickly as it came. Lin still has some very loyal fans — particularly in the Asian American community — but…

  20. Pau Gasol, on whether he’d take a significant pay cut to re-sign with Lakers: ‘Probably not’

    Oct 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol

    The Lakers only have two players under guaranteed contracts for next season in Steve Nash and Robert Sacre, and just a little more than $10 million in total salary committed. That means there’s a wealth of possibilities in terms of how the team could decide to fill out its roster for 2014 and beyond, and…

  21. Dwight Howard hears boos, “Kobe” chants at Philippines game

    Oct 10, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Indiana Pacers

    Kobe Bryant’s fans are passionate, blindingly loyal, defend their guy like a pit bull — and they are everywhere. Including the Philippines. Dwight Howard and the Rockets were in the Philippines for the first NBA game ever there — a preseason game in Manila that wrapped up before you woke up Thursday. By the way…

    Marcus Camby

    Sadly, it wouldn’t feel like an NBA season without a Marcus Camby injury report. The veteran big man is now in Houston to back up Dwight Howard, but he will not be able to do that for at least a couple weeks — and more likely a couple months — due to a torn plantar…

    Oct 8, 2013, 2:57 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Houston Rockets

    Dwight Howard wants… no, needs to have fun. It’s part of the reason he didn’t mesh with the serious and driven Kobe Bryant (and to a lesser degree Steve Nash) in Los Angeles. It’s part of what drew him to Houston as Chandler Parsons sold him on a college-like experience. So you had to know…

    Luol Deng is in the final year of his contract with the Bulls, one that will pay him more than $14 million this season. He’s a two-time All-Star who performs well at both ends of the floor, and someone considered vital to Chicago’s chances for success. But whether due to disagreement over his future value…
