Dwight Howard

  1. His new coach talks DeMarcus Cousins and maturity

    Jan 13, 2012, 3:57 PM EDT

    Keith Smart, DeMarcus Cousins

    Somewhere near the top of the list of things Keith Smart has to do that his predecessor as coach of the Sacramento Kings (Paul Westphal) couldn’t do is build a good relationship with DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins is immensely talented but with an ego to match. He’s not loved in his own locker room, other teams…

  2. Video: Bucks, Pistons go 41-of-41 from free throw line

    Carlos Delfino (10) drives upcourt after stealing the ball from Detroit Pistons' Ben Gordon

    Dwight Howard wasn’t the only one making free throw history on Thursday night. In a game we’re pretty sure you didn’t watch, the Bucks and Pistons went 41-of-41 combined from the charity stripe. They were perfect — thanks to a lane violation early on that saved the day. Pistons big man Greg Monroe led the…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: it’s a free throw-a-palooza

    Jan 13, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What you missed while trying to beat up a police officer with a stuffed monkey…. Cavaliers 101, Suns 90: Kyrie Irving had his best game ever matched up against Steve Nash. Our own Brett Pollakoff broke it down as our game of the night. Magic 117, Warriors 109: Mark Jackson decided the best strategy was…

  4. Dwight Howard sets record with 39 free throws in game

    Jan 13, 2012, 2:00 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    New Warriors coach Mark Jackson set the strategy — hack-a-Howard. Golden State intentionally fouled Dwight Howard all game long. In addition to the times they just fouled him as he attacked the rim — the Warriors tried to single-cover him with David Lee and other players who just are not big enough The result was…

  5. Do the Bulls have a problem in the paint?

    oakim Noah

    The Chicago Bulls — without Derrick Rose and playing John Lucas III 45 minutes at the point — beat the lowly Washington Wizards Wednesday night thanks to their suffocating defense. And defense is why the big men on the floor for the key moments of the game for Chicago were Omer Asik and Taj Gibson…

  6. Dwight Howard leads everyone in first All-Star ballot returns

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    You didn’t love Dwight Howard as much as Derrick Rose and LeBron James when it came time to award the MVP last year (I know you didn’t get to vote on that, neither did I, but sentiment on this site ran heavy to Rose among commenters). But you love him now. Howard, the Magic’s center,…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe drops another 40

    Jan 12, 2012, 7:58 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while you tried to shame your kid into behaving…. Clippers 95, Heat 89: The game where the rims were afraid was our game of the night. Lakers 90, Jazz 87 (OT): The Lakers might not have gotten to the overtime without Kobe Bryant dropping 40 points — but when Kobe went cold…

  8. Gerald Wallace will not sign an extension with Trail Blazers

    Jan 11, 2012, 8:59 AM EDT

    Trail Blazers Wallace celebrates against Mavericks during NBA playoff game in Portland, Oregon.

    Portland fans, this is not personal. It’s business. Gerald Wallace — a key part of the Blazers resurgence — will not sign an extension with the Trail Blazers, representatives for the free agent to be told the team, reports Jason Quick at the Oregonian. It’s not that the veteran isn’t happy or doesn’t want to…

  9. Report: Team USA sets 19 players for preliminary Olympic roster

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    The USA will send 12 men to London this summer to suit up and defend America’s gold medal from the last Olympic games. And that dozen will come from these 19 guys, according Chris Sheridan at SheridanHoops.com who broke the story of the preliminary roster. We’ve broken them out by position (they are alphabetical in their…

  10. Kwame Brown wants some credit for Andrew Bynum’s success

    Jan 9, 2012, 9:17 PM EDT

    andrew-bynum-kwame-brown-flex

    Andrew Bynum is blowing up this season — averaging 18.8 points and 15.7 rebounds per game, he is putting up numbers that are making Lakers fans rethink their Dwight Howard fascination. He is showing more polish and power, getting more shots right at the rim (7.7 attempts per game) and he is a beast on…

  11. NBA Power Rankings: Heat on top, Blazers best in West

    Jan 9, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James does a dance with Chalmers during a time-out in overtime after they tied their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta

    A little shifting up at the top but nothing too dramatic. Your big movers this week is the 76ers, who are playing well and moving up the rankings, and the Hornets dropping like a rock. 1. Heat (8-1 last week ranked No. 1). Chris Bosh drops 33 on the Hawks and wants you to remember…

  12. Monday And-1 links: Who is Lakers second scoring option?

    Jan 9, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning 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). Who is the Lakers second scoring option after Kobe? Well, Kobe Bryant says it’s Andrew Bynum. Kwame Brown thinks he deserves some of the credit…

  13. Dwight Howard trade still in neutral

    Jan 9, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Omer Asik

    I’d be surprised if Dwight Howard is traded before the All-Star game the last weekend of February. That is if he gets moved at all — Howard said he may not to Yahoo Sports. “I don’t think they are going to do anything right now because we’re winning,” Howard said after a 104-97 victory over…

  14. Deron Williams says Nets offense “sucks.” He just noticed?

    Jan 9, 2012, 9:59 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets' Williams, Humphries and Brooks sit on the bench during their loss to Miami Heat in their NBA basketball game in Newark

    Deron Williams has noticed what the rest of us have known for nine games now — the Nets are terrible on offense. Here is the quote, via the New York Post. “The offense sucks,” he said. “It’s not very good right now. We’re not playing good. We’re not shooting good, I’m not shooting good, we’re…

  15. Otis Smith says nothing has changed with Dwight’s situation. Oh, and he’s receiving threats from fans.

    Jan 8, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    Otis Smith, Orlando Magic

    Orlando General Manager Otis Smith sat down with the Orlando Sentinel this weekend, and as far as Dwight Howard‘s situation, which rumors had suggested Howard having rescinded his trade request, uh… yeah, status quo: Sentinel: Has anything changed with Dwight’s situation? Smith: No. Sentinel: Has he pulled back the trade request? Smith: No. Sentinel: Has…

  16. Video report: Knicks willing to trade Stoudemire to rent Howard

    Jan 6, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    howard-stoudemire

    The Knicks have opened talks that would send Amare Stoudemire to Orlando in a swap to rent Dwight Howard, reports Donny Marshall — former NBA player and current CSNNE reporter — on NBC SportsTalk Thursday. In the video above the talk of the trade starts at the 3:30 mark. There are a whole lot of…

  17. Report: Warriors “aggressive” suitor to rent Dwight Howard

    Jan 5, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Dwight Howard gave the Magic a list of places where he would sign an extension (New Jersey, Dallas, the Los Angeles Lakers). The Magic said they would listen to offers from teams willing to “rent” Howard for this season without the guarantee he would opt in for another year at least (as Chris Paul did)…

  18. Dwight Howard “too old” for another dunk contest

    Jan 5, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    dhoward_627_080215

    Dwight Howard will be center stage All-Star Weekend in Orlando — the guy with the trade demand will either be in a different uniform or still in a Magic jersey but with trade rumors swirling around him and dominating the weekend. What he will not be center stage at is the dunk contest. The guy…

  19. Joel Anthony doesn’t know why he’s on All-Star ballot either

    Jan 5, 2012, 1:03 PM EDT

    Joel Anthony

    There are usually some real head scratchers when the NBA All-Star Ballot is released, mostly because due to printing logistics the players are selected well before the season starts. Good rookies or breakout players can get left off, injured players are on the list. But this year things were pretty good, not a lot of…

  20. Thursdays And-1 links, where Lakers fans are just wrong

    Jan 5, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning 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). In this poll, 56 percent of Lakers fans would rather have Andrew Bynum as their starting center over Dwight Howard. Those fans are fools. I’m…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Knicks have the same record

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:14 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while watching West Virginia score more first half points than 15 the NBA teams playing last night (seriously)…. Bobcats 118, Knicks 110: Boris Diaw outplayed Amare Stoudemire. Gerald Henderson took it to Landry Fields at every turn. The Charlotte Bobcats outworked a Knicks team that has a lot of talent but looks…

  22. NBA releases All-Star ballot, here are my early votes

    You can vote — and not just if you’re a Republican in Iowa. The NBA opened All-Star Game voting to the fans on Wednesday, so you can pick who will not play any defense in Orlando Feb. 26. Fan voting picks the starters, the coaches for the teams help pick the rest of the squad.…

  23. The Nets, “Community,” and the darkest timeline

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    darkesttimeline

    In the Community (Thursdays this…. sometime in the coming months… on NBC!) episode “Remedial Chaos Theory,” the writers took the ol’ alternate timeline theory and spread it out like a Nuggets fast break. The concept is simple. The cast of man characters are at an apartment, sitting around a table. The door buzzer buzzes with…

  24. LeBron thinks London Olympic team compares to Dream Team, too

    Jan 3, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Beijing Olympics

    Team USA is not backing away from filling the big shoes. Last week USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo said he thought the upcoming USA Olympic team was a “fair comparison” with the 1992 Dream team that featured Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and others. LeBron James thinks Colangelo is right,…

  25. Dwyane Wade says 2012 will be his last Olympics

    Jan 2, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade Team USA Olympics

    Dwyane Wade is considered one of the locks for the 2012 USA Basketball roster for the London Olympics. He has Olympic experience helping the USA get the gold medal in Beijing, he is probably the best two guard in the game today and in what should be an up-tempo affair he is one of the…
