Dwight Howard

  1. Report: Howard won’t sign extension with Lakers, but they are not out of it

    Feb 29, 2012, 12:41 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s all about the money. And it’s not necessarily as big a deal as Lakers fans think. But it might give the Lakers front office pause. Lakers radio play-by-play man (and long-time Los Angeles sports personality) John Ireland reported on Tuesday that Dwight Howard’s agent Donald Fegan told the Lakers his client will not sign…

  2. Could Dallas get Deron Williams and Dwight Howard? Yes, but…

    Feb 29, 2012, 8:44 AM EST

    Deron Williams, Dwight Howard

    So here is the scenario you will see laid out here and other places over the next couple weeks heading into the trade deadline: The Dallas Mavericks find a trade partner to take on Shawn Marion’s $8 million contract for next season (without sending any money back), then they amnesty Brandon Haywood, make a couple…

  3. Report: Warriors still willing to risk trade for Dwight Howard

    Feb 28, 2012, 7:54 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard has set his terms and they have not changed — he is not signing an extension with the Magic right now and he will only sign an extension with the Nets (his preferred destination), Lakers or Mavericks. But Golden State has not given up — and they don’t care about an extension. Here’s…

  4. All-Star Weekend draws great ratings

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:37 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The NBA has sent out a series of press releases on the overnight ratings for its All-Star Weekend events, which were very strong across the board. The format change to the “Rising Stars Game” — which went to a “Team Shaq vs. Team Chuck” format this year, as opposed to the traditional rookies vs. sophomores…

  5. Orlando fans make a music video asking Dwight Howard to stay in Orlando

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:09 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    I’ll let Page 2’s Patrick Dorsey explain this video: On Friday we made the case for Orlando as a suitable metropolis for Magic center Dwight Howard, and included a video from local musician Jeff Wilson and the Orlando Sentinel. Now we have an updated version of the video, from local lawyer/superfan Dennis Salvagio, a.k.a. The Fat Guy,…

    Brook Lopez

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). The Golden State Warriors have their eye on Brook Lopez (if that whole “trade for Dwight Howard” thing doesn’t work out for the Nets). Ramon…

  7. Dwight Howard rumor storm begins: here is where we stand

    Feb 28, 2012, 11:15 AM EST

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    All-Star Weekend is in the rear view mirror, the NBA trade deadline is just more than two weeks away (March 15), so now the focus of the NBA world becomes this: Where will Dwight Howard be playing March 16? There are 8 million rumors out there in the naked city right now, here is where…

  8. Video: One last look back at All-Star Game highlights

    Feb 28, 2012, 8:06 AM EST

    Today the second half of the NBA season tips-off, but before we go there — and into the realm of Dwight Howard trade rumors — let us take one last look back at some highlights from the 2012 NBA All-Star Game. This is the “phantom” style video from the fine folks at NBA.com, where they…

    Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports sits down to talk about the All-Star Game, the repercussions of Dwyane Wade‘s foul on Kobe Bryant, how the Mavericks can make a run at Deron Williams and Dwight Howard, and if Steve Nash could head to… Orlando?

    Heat's Wade and James watch teammate Chalmers compete in three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

  11. Winderman: Sacramento arena win just first step for Kings

    Feb 27, 2012, 3:53 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The victory by the Sacramento Kings over a new arena and long-term franchise stability is an encouraging one for small markets throughout the NBA. The Kings, thanks to the efforts of Kevin Johnson, the nation’s best ball-handling mayor, now will have a stable home for years to come. But a building only ensures residency, not…

  12. Momma says: Dwight Howard’s mom reportedly wants him to stay in Orlando

    Feb 27, 2012, 12:58 PM EST

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Dwight Howard has a big decision on his hand. He reportedly hasn’t retracted his trade demand, nor has he decided where he explicitly wants to go. The Magic haven’t decided to actively pursue offers, choosing to wait and see what happens after they offer another extension after March 1st. So in general, nothing new to…

  13. Video: What super powers would NBA players want?

    Feb 27, 2012, 10:34 AM EST

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    The Baketball Jones guys kill it again. All through All-Star Weekend you have to suffer through players answering terrible questions (same thing happens at the Super Bowl). Jeremy Lin does a press conference on Friday and the first question is about his NBA 2K12 score and what he thinks of it. Ugh. But if you…

  14. Recapping PBT’s coverage of All-Star weekend from Orlando

    Feb 27, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    After four exciting and exhausting days in Orlando for All-Star weekend, it’s time for PBT to get out of town. The weather was good, and the city itself might be great, but we wouldn’t know due to spending the entire time shuttled between hotels, convention centers, and of course, the Amway Center downtown. Speaking of…

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). All weekend Deron Williams got asked about Jeremy Lin again and again — not his favorite topic, as you might guess — but he did…

  16. Deron Williams says Nets ready for weeks of speculation

    Feb 27, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It’s about to become the only think anyone talks about. Through All-Star Weekend, Dwight Howard was able to keep a lid on the speculation about whether or not he will be traded. But that is about to change. The Magic players and front office staff are going to be asked constantly about whether or not…

  17. Your 2012 All-Star Game winners and losers

    Feb 27, 2012, 12:01 AM EST

    NBA/

    It’s an exhibition, but it’s still a competition. Someone has to win (the West, 152-149). Someone has to lose. We’re here to sort it all out for you. The winners. The losers. And even how you can be both. Winner: Kevin Durant. The game MVP did it all — he had maybe the best dunk…

  18. Kevin Durant wins 2012 All-Star MVP, West beats East 152-149

    Feb 26, 2012, 11:56 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The 2012 NBA All-Star game started off as a blowout, but ended up being competitive to the final possession. Kevin Durant and LeBron James tied for the game-high in scoring with 36 points each, but Durant got the MVP nod as his West squad held on to win in exciting fashion, 152-149. Durant started off…

  19. Dwight Howard isn’t talking trade, but everyone else is

    Feb 26, 2012, 4:49 PM EST

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    Three times on Friday and Saturday I heard a reporter try to broach the topic of trade demands and where he might play in the future with Dwight Howard, and every time he has responded that he is not talking about anything past All-Star Weekend. “The situation we are in right now is All-Star Weekend.…

  20. Your Lakers trade rumors and speculation of the day

    Feb 26, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum, Byron Mullens

    I’m just going to put this one out there, and let you decide how you feel about it. Peter Vescey of the New York Post, yes, him,  has a post describing the Dwight Howard situation and the Lakers’ involvement. Apparently there’s been an offer, and apparently it was shot down. From the Post: “I can…

  21. Video: Paul George’s glow-in-the-dark dunk from All-Star Saturday night

    Feb 26, 2012, 11:22 AM EST

    paul-george-glow-in-the-dark

    The 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk contest seemed to be all about gimmicks, and Paul George of the Indiana Pacers was the one who led the charge. This glow-in-the-dark dunk wasn’t a bad idea in theory, but he didn’t glow nearly enough for us to get a good enough look at that athletic, 360 windmill jam…

  22. Grading Dunk Contest dunks: Evans and Budinger get an A

    Feb 25, 2012, 11:59 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    It was not a great contest, and worst of all it felt scripted, like the Kardashian “reality” shows. But I guess that’s where we’ve gotten to with the All-Star Dunk Contest. It’s style over substance. And only a couple dunks really impressed We’ve graded all 12 dunks from the contest (from A to F, like…

  23. Jeremy Evans wins 2012 Slam Dunk Contest

    Feb 25, 2012, 11:57 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz was a late addition to the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk contest, only getting in after the Knicks’ Iman Shumpert bowed out due to injury. But he made the most of it, and the best of his three dunks — a leap over a seated Gordon Hayward, who threw two…

  24. David Stern defends Dwight Howard’s right to leave Orlando

    Feb 25, 2012, 8:46 PM EST

    David-Stern-all-star-2012

    NBA commissioner David Stern held his annual All-Star weekend press conference from the Amway Center in Orlando on Saturday, and not surprisingly, one of the first questions that came up was about Dwight Howard. Howard, as you may have heard, is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, and he’s gone back…

  25. The league was nice enough to pair Dwight Howard up on a community service trip with Deron Williams

    Feb 25, 2012, 1:35 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Practice

    The Nets want Dwight Howard. And not in the “well, if you’re available, we’d love to have coffee with you” way. More in the “blurting out ‘I love you’ on the first date and talking about how easy you are to get into bed” way. The only way this gets more intense is if Mikhail…
