    Dwight Howard

    Lakers fans got their cathartic release of booing Dwight Howard and chanting “Howard sucks” at him Wednesday night while Howard and his new teammates showed why he made the right basketball move this summer as Houston routed the Los Angeles Lakers. Howard and the Rockets thought the chants were funny. As evidence, here is something…

  2. Lakers’ Jodie Meeks with insane behind-the-backboard shot (VIDEO)

    Feb 20, 2014, 8:44 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    There were not a lot of Lakers highlights from their blowout loss to Dwight Howard and the Rockets, but this certainly was one. Just more than a minute into the game Wednesday Jodie Meeks got the ball in transition and tried to draw the shooting foul, which means he had to take a shot. So…

  3. One Lakers fan leaves Dwight Howard hanging on high five (VIDEO)

    Feb 20, 2014, 2:38 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Classic. Most Lakers fans have moved on from the Dwight Howard saga, but that doesn’t mean they like him. When Howard was walking off the court after the first half of his return to Staples Center Wednesday night he was high-fiving fans — watch the one guy pull his hand back and basically do everything…

  4. Dwight Howard gets booed by Lakers fans, responds with efficient 20 points in Rockets win

    Feb 20, 2014, 2:20 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    This game played out pretty much exactly as expected. Dwight Howard made his return to Staples Center and was lustily booed by Lakers fans. Then the game tipped off and the Rockets went out of their way to feed Howard in the post — he scored the Rockets first six points and had eight points,…

  5. Pau Gasol out Wednesday night for Lakers

    Feb 19, 2014, 2:58 PM EST

    Pau Gasol

    It was always a long shot anyway, but the idea of the Lakers trading big man Pau Gasol at the deadline — most likely to Phoenix, but there were other talks including with Charlotte — always seemed to have the caveat that other teams wanted to see him healthy and back on the court. Not…

  6. LeBron, Kobe lead Forbes top 10 list of NBA endorsers

    Feb 19, 2014, 10:14 AM EST

    Lebron James,Kobe Bryant,  Andre Iguodala

    Forbes released its top 10 list of off-the-court NBA earners this week, and not surprisingly, a couple of the game’s biggest stars lead the pack. Before we get to the complete list, something stands out when looking at the dollars the top NBA athletes rake in, especially when compared to other sports’ stars. Thanks to…

  7. Kyrie Irving wins MVP of 2014 NBA All-Star game

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:26 AM EST

    NBA All-Star Game 2014

    NEW ORLEANS – At halftime of what was a record-setting 2014 NBA All-Star game, Kyrie Irving wasn’t on anyone’s radar as far as the game’s MVP award was concerned. By the time it was finished, he was the obvious choice. Irving finished with 31 points, five rebounds and 14 assists, and was the catalyst for…

  8. Kobe says he doesn’t want input on Lakers free agent decisions this summer

    Feb 16, 2014, 9:46 PM EST

    kobe all-star NOLA

    NEW ORLEANS – Kobe Bryant was voted in by the fans as an All-Star this season, an honor he received for the seventeenth time in his Hall of Fame career. He’s been sidelined with a knee injury since Dec. 20, however, so not only was he replaced in the lineup for the midseason exhibition, but he…

  9. All-Star smack talk: James Harden shows off Eurostep game winner to John Wall firsthand

    Feb 15, 2014, 4:59 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Practices 2014

    NEW ORLEANS — The above play happened on Wednesday night — the Rockets were down one to the Wizards with four seconds left when James Harden lost his man John Wall on a Dwight Howard (moving) screen, got the ball out top, drove the lane, Eurostepped around the defender and scored the winning bucket. That play…

  10. Dwight Howard, on whether LeBron or Durant is league’s best: ‘I have to believe in myself as being the best player’

    Feb 15, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    Dwight Howard is back to being the player we saw in Orlando before undergoing back surgery in the summer of 2012, but whether or not the league’s fans are all the way back to adoring him the way they did after multiple dunk contest titles remains a bit of a question. Howard turned fans off…

  11. Dwight Howard Instagrams photo of himself dunking on Kobe Bryant

    Feb 14, 2014, 11:55 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    If someone ever photographed me dunking on someone – an impossibility, considering my hops have most commonly been compared to Bill Laimbeer’s, and I’m not 6-foot-11 – I’d be tempted to send that picture to the dunk victim every single day. If the dunked-on were my friend, I probably would. If he weren’t a friend,…

  12. Lakers GM says no regrets about Nash. What else is he going to say?

    Feb 14, 2014, 10:59 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    When Steve Nash played in his 10th game of the season this week — which took the medical retirement off the table, his $9.5 million will be paid by the Lakers one way or another now — there were a number of Lakers fans upset with that. They thought Nash was selfish for not putting…

  13. Rockets’ James Harden drives for game-winning lay-up over Wizards (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2014, 11:16 PM EST

    WASHINGTON WIZARDS VS. HOUSTON ROCKETS

    It was an unsual ending in Houston. The Rockets had the ball down two to the Wizards with :04 seconds left and, as you would expect, Houston wanted to get the ball to James Harden coming out high off a Dwight Howard screen — except Trevor Ariza hooked Harden’s arm, knocking him to the ground…

  14. Dwight Howard does his Kevin McHale impersonation (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2014, 6:50 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    “Birdy?” Dwight Howard likes to play around, he likes to do impressions. At shootaround Wednesday when asked about getting a win in the last test before the All-Star Break (against Washington), Howard broke out his imitation of coach Kevin McHale. It’s okay. Could use some work but not bad. McHale probably thinks its funny.

  15. Howard, Stoudemire, Parsons, Shumpert, more star in fantastic fake movie trailer (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2014, 4:52 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    The first thing you need to know is that there is a company called Relativity Sports which represents a whole lot of NBA players. Dan Fegan is the head man of their basketball operations. That operation includes a marketing team, which put together this funny fake movie trailer. Which is pretty amusing. They got Dwight…

  16. Love puts up a big line, but balanced Rockets keep rolling to sixth straight win

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:30 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Just before the All-Star break and a celebration of the game’s biggest names we bring you this reminder: Basketball is still a team game. The Timberwolves’ Kevin Love was the best scorer on the floor Monday night when Houston came to Minnesota. With no Kevin Martin (thumb) and no Nikola Pekovic it puts a lot…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  19. LeBron says he should be Defensive Player of the Year

    Feb 7, 2014, 12:55 PM EST

    Heat vs. Spurs

    It’s going to be Roy Hibbert. If you were going to bet on one sure thing out of the NBA’s awards this season, you should bet on Roy Hibbert being named Defensive Player of the Year. More than Durant as MVP or Michael Carter-Williams as Rookie of the Year, Hibbert is a lock for DPOY.…

  20. Wall, Lillard, George headline new look All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:55 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    If all of us — red state, blue state, regardless of religion or skin color — could come together and agree on just two things they would be: 1) Kevin Durant’s new puppy is really cute. 2) The NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest needed some life injected into it. The NBA has heard you on…

  21. J.R. Smith fears Mike Woodson getting fired (as he should)

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:58 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    J.R. Smith was suspended for the New York Knicks’ first five games due to a failed drug test. He delayed getting knee surgery until after signing a new contract. He feuded with Paul Pierce. And that was just before the season began. But when Smith returned after his suspension, Woodson immediately gave him big minutes.…

  23. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…
