Dwight Howard

  1. Report: Wherever Asik is traded it won’t be to New Orleans, Milwaukee

    Dec 13, 2013, 6:22 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets are set to trade valuable big man Omer Asik and want to get it done by next Thursday (the reason is anyone they get in a trade by then can be flipped again at the trading deadline, after that date they have the player for the rest of the season). Houston would…

  2. The Extra Pass: Deron Williams is the difference for Nets; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    By Brett Pollakoff NEW YORK – It was only a week ago that the Nets were a sinking ship on the verge of capsizing completely, following consecutive losses at home where the team didn’t even seem capable of competing much less staying close enough to win for anywhere near the requisite 48 minutes. Jason Kidd may…

  3. Thursday night NBA grades: Any more questions for LaMarcus Aldridge? Didn’t think so.

    Dec 13, 2013, 2:50 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    Our quick look around the association on a busy Thursday night, or what you missed while worrying about what could happen to Santa’s home due to global warming… LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. I’ve been saying he is the best power forward in the game all season (yes, better than Kevin Love) and he showed…

  4. Carmelo Anthony and Rajon Rondo deny recruitment rumors

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    112ccd7d6c982f04e2f1e3bf958674c1

    Rajon Rondo’s high school coach said Carmelo Anthony was recruiting Rondo, a 2015 free agent, to New York. As Kurt wrote, those types of conversations happen all the time. Of course, nobody publicly admits to them while they’re ongoing (except Chandler Parsons, who bragged about recruiting Dwight Howard to the Rockets). Anthony, via Ian Begley…

  5. Deserving or not Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade among All-Star starters in early voting returns

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see. Whether those players deserve the honor based on their performance the first half of the season or not. Sometimes the most deserving guys don’t make the cut while guys hobbling through the season do. Which brings…

  6. PBT Extra: Talking Pacers win over Heat; Aldridge vs. Howard showdown

    Dec 11, 2013, 4:37 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    In the latest edition of PBT Extra, Kay Adams asks about the Pacers win over the Heat Tuesday — I don’t read much into any regular season meeting between these games. That said, I still stand by my pick of the Pacers to win the NBA title this year. Then we shift our focus to…

  7. Dwight Howard keeping candy away from Rockets teammates

    Dec 11, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    74b8c0232965f6bc36adf1b73a3e8e6e

    Dwight Howard improved after after the All-Star break last season – before All-Star break: 16.3 points and 11.8 rebounds per game; after All-Star break: 18.4 points and 13.6 rebounds per game – and the reason is no secret: His back got healthier. But that wasn’t the only factor. Howard told Ken Berger of CBSSports.com he…

  8. The Extra Pass: The league’s leading lineups; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    After watching two of the league’s best starting lineups duke it out in Indiana, let’s check in on the best and worst lineups around the league so far this season. Best Net Efficiency Rating (minimum 150 minutes) Houston: Patrick Beverley-James Harden-Chandler Parsons-Terrence Jones-Dwight Howard Net efficiency is the difference between a team’s offensive rating and…

  9. The Extra Pass: Five quick ways to improve the league; plus Monday’s Recaps

    Dec 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Five ideas that could help make the NBA even greater: Offensive Goaltending: Let’s get rid of it. The “in the cylinder” call is routinely one of the toughest for refs to get right on the floor, and we know how the subsequent huddle and review process can suck the life out of a game. If it…

  10. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  11. Rockets celebrate Dwight Howard’s birthday with silly string attack (VIDEO)

    Dec 9, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    Dwight Howard turned 28 on Sunday. (Maybe that’s why Kobe decided to not play Friday and wait until Sunday… nah.) Howard celebrated by dropping 20 points and grabbing 22 rebounds on his old Orlando Magic team (you knew he’d be up for that game) then the team went out bowling with his Rockets’ teammates —…

  12. The Extra Pass: Raptors’ salary dump trade could mean a few more wins, too; plus Sunday recaps

    Dec 9, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Amir Johnson Raptors

    LOS ANGELES — Make no mistake, this was first and foremost about money. And future flexibility. Raptors GM Masai Ujiri made a smart trade sending Rudy Gay out of town in a deal that sets his team up for the future by removing up to $12.4 million from the books next season. This summer  Andrea…

  13. LeBron James likely to start at center for Eastern Conference All-Stars

    Dec 8, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    The NBA changed the way they categorize players for All-Star voting purposes last season, eliminating the center position (and all others) from the ballot entirely and replacing those with either a frontcourt or backcourt player distinction. While it won’t affect superstar big men like Roy Hibbert making the All-Star roster, it will change the way…

  14. Report: Sixers a viable trade destination for Omer Asik

    Dec 8, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Omer Asik

    The reports surrounding the status of Rockets big man Omer Asik will continue their steady stream until the inevitable trade happens. Houston wanted to make it work with Asik playing alongside Dwight Howard, but that experiment failed and with Asik being disgruntled in his situation and constantly requesting to be traded, the Rockets seem determined…

  15. Report: Knicks have ‘zero intention’ of trading Carmelo Anthony

    Dec 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks have won two straight in blowout fashion, looking a little like last year’s club with the hot three-point shooting and briefly returning some sense of sanity to the team and its fan base. The media has yet to catch up, however, as the reports and rumors continue to fly about Carmelo Anthony‘s future…

  16. Dwight Howard frustrated with Rockets’ effort in recent losses

    Dec 5, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets’ offense has been one of the best in the NBA this season. James Harden on the outside, Dwight Howard inside and a good combination of role players has worked well. But not Wednesday night. Against the Suns the Rockets shot 35.2 percent as a team and 29 percent from three. It was…

  17. Wednesday night NBA Grades: LaMarcus Aldridge is a flat out stud

    Dec 5, 2013, 2:20 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Our nightly look around the NBA, or what you missed while figuring out how to use lasers to mark the first down line in the a football game…. LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. For my money right now he is the best power forward in the game. I’d rather have him over Kevin Love or…

  18. Rockets’ Omer Asik to miss at least a week with thigh injury

    Dec 4, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Omer Asik will be out for at least a week after suffering a right thigh contusion, reports Jason Friedman of Rockets.com. Asik will be re-evaluated at that time to assess whether or not he’s able to return. Asik’s injury could leave Houston pretty shorthanded for Wednesday night’s contest against the Suns. Jeremy Lin is out…

  19. Manu Ginobili finds Tim Duncan with the bounce pass through Dwight Howard’s legs (VIDEO)

    Dec 1, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 7

    The players with the best court vision make this pass multiple times throughout their careers, but it’s still something to marvel at when it actually happens. Manu Ginobili found Tim Duncan with a bounce pass between Dwight Howard‘s legs, and Duncan converted it for the and-1 finish late in a close game between the Spurs…

  20. Lakers’ GM says franchise still can build contender around Kobe

    Nov 26, 2013, 5:26 PM EDT

    kobe mitch

    Nobody who knows the Lakers questions if signing Kobe Bryant to a two-year, $48.5 million contract extension is a good business move. Kobe Bryant is worth three times that to the franchise — he fills arena, and more importantly the high priced seats and luxury boxes, with loyal fans. For two years after this the…

  21. Vince Carter says he was joking around about Dwight Howard “crybaby” crack

    Nov 22, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Dallas Mavericks

    Predictably, the Internet loved it when Vince Carter said Dwight Howard was the biggest crybaby he knew. After two years of drama as he left Orlando for Los Angeles, the L.A. for Houston, it’s safe to say fans outside H Town are pretty much done with all things Dwight. And Carter’s comments fit right into…

  22. PBT Podcast for Nov. 22: Stan Van Gundy talks Bobcats, Blazers, Knicks, more

    Nov 22, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    See, you can get through a full interview with Stan Van Gundy and not bring up Dwight Howard once. Stan Van Gundy, former Miami Heat and Orlando Magic head coach, joined myself and  Eyton Shander of NBC Sports Radio  for the Nov. 22 edition of the ProBasketballTalk Podcast. Rather than talk about the tired Howard subject, we chose…

  23. That Houston’s Asik for New Orleans’ Anderson trade? Don’t bet on it.

    Nov 22, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    On paper it seems like a great trade. The Rockets really want a stretch four to go next to Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson may be the best in the business. The Pelicans have a budding young superstar in Anthony Davis they could use a solid big who can do some of the dirty work…

  24. Dwight Howard fined $25,000 for flipping ball at heckler

    Nov 21, 2013, 6:14 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    We told you this morning a fine was likely coming for this — the league gets very protective of the fans in the high-priced seats. While the Dallas Mavericks were making their fourth quarter comeback Wednesday night, a frustrated Dwight Howard tossed the ball at a fan heckling him. It wasn’t thrown, nobody got hurt,…

  25. Vince Carter on Dwight Howard: “The biggest crybaby I know”

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Dallas Mavericks

    Well, at least Dwight Howard didn’t toss a ball at Vince Carter… that we know of. Everyone has been piling on Dwight Howard this season — Shaq on TNT, Mark Cuban, Lakers fans, pretty much everyone outside Houston… And now you can add Vince Carter to the list. That is former teammate and fellow off-season…
