  1. Video: Dwight Howard playing point, coast-to-coast dunk

    Aug 11, 2011, 1:14 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard wants more freedom for his game, like maybe playing a little point guard. That’s what he was doing at a pro-am game recently, and we bring you video of Howard taking the inbound pass and going coast-to-coast for the dunk. Stan Van Gundy will let Howard play some point as soon as he…

  2. What can LeBron James actually learn from training with Hakeem Olajuwon?

    Aug 10, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Few things in the world of pro basketball are fetishized more than mentorship, particularly when the part of the wise sage is played by an NBA legend. There’s just something about NBA greats — past and present — comparing notes that really sparks the imagination; the idea that some enlightenment could be gained through two…

  3. Greivis Vasquez says Marc Gasol will be best center in NBA

    Aug 10, 2011, 11:38 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antionio Spurs - Game Five

    Marc Gasol was a much-derided throw-in as part of the trade that sent Pau Gasol to the Lakers. He hadn’t set foot in the NBA and those who saw him in Spain thought he would make a solid NBA player, but nothing special Now, he’s one of the league’s better big men, a much-coveted restricted…

  4. Howard would like Orlando fans to cheer like it’s 2009

    Aug 8, 2011, 3:56 PM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Come on Orlando Magic ticket holders — when they start pumping in the “every-body-clap-your-hands” noise at the Amway Center, Dwight Howard wants you feel it. Really feel it. On twitter yesterday a Magic fan made a complaint to Howard that fans in 29 other arenas make — the fans close to floor are just there…

  5. Olajuwon says Dwight Howard needs more freedom

    Aug 2, 2011, 5:16 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Free Dwight Howard! That is essentially what Hakeem Olajuwon seems to be saying. Last week, Dwight Howard was working out with the legendary big man, trying to “just shoot” and expand his offensive game. When asked this week what Olajuwon said, it was less about the broad skill set Howard has developed — he has…

  6. Dwight Howard: Players can find themselves during lockout

    Aug 2, 2011, 4:14 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    We’re desperately looking for bright sides to the NBA lockout, because after today it feels like it’s going to be a long one. Dwight Howard has one — the players can use this time to really find themselves. Find themselves in the sense of who they really are as a person — that stuff you…

  7. Dwight Howard working out with Hakeem Olajuwon again

    Jul 28, 2011, 12:42 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard dunks on Jrue Holiday

    Dwight Howard’s offensive repertoire has expanded greatly over the past few years — the knock on him as a power only player is gone. He has developed a Duncanesque midrange bank shot opponents have to respect — the season the Magic went to the finals in 2009 he shot 28 percent from 10 to 15…

  8. Dwight Howard goes to Comic-Con (and talks free agency)

    Jul 26, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

    Disney XD'S "Kick Buttowski Suburban Daredevil" - Comic-Con 2011

    Dwight Howard stands out at Comic-Con. Which is not that easy to do. The entire city of San Diego seems to be dressed as a stormtrooper or an Amime character for the annual convention of all-things comic and sci-fi. But a 6’11” man who is the best center walking the planet gets noticed anywhere he…

  9. Expect the Magic to keep launching three pointers

    Jul 26, 2011, 9:53 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    No team attempted more three pointers than the Orlando Magic last season. Not the run and gun Knicks (22 fewer) and the Suns were third in attempts and nowhere close (246 fewer). That was true the season before and the Magic have been in the top two of the league every season since 2007-08. And…

  10. LeBron, reportedly the one star not “open” to Europe

    Jul 22, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Chris Paul is the latest NBA star “open” to playing in Europe next season if the NBA lockout drags on. He joins Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and a host of others who are open to the idea. Personally, I’m open to dating Scarlett Johansson. I’m open to winning the…

  11. Howard doesn’t think the Magic get enough love from media

    Jul 20, 2011, 11:09 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Dwight Howard, you do not get to have it both ways. The center was in Paris recently, part of a promotional tour by adidas, and said the Magic do not get enough love from the American media. It was part of an interview with the French magazine Reverse, transcribed by web site TalkBasket. “I really…

  12. Howard says there is a “huge possibility” he plays overseas

    Jul 18, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    There is a lot of risk in Dwight Howard playing overseas during the lockout — he has two years, $37.5 million on his existing deal that can be wiped out if he gets injured. What’s more, he has said he is going to opt out of that last year, meaning he would be a free…

  13. Not to put too fine a point on it, but this lockout could really doom the Magic

    Jul 16, 2011, 10:36 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The owners aren’t really cutting off their noses to spite their faces. It’s more of a self-provided lobotomy just to show the brain who’s boss. There are quite a few owners who have designated plans on a championship. And failing that, several of them are in pivotal moments for their franchise. A few wrong moves…

  14. Dwight Howard would choose China over Europe?

    Jul 13, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    This is a hypothetical exercise, Dwight Howard is not going to play overseas. He may say he is open to it but there is only in infinitesimal chance Dwight Howard would actually lace up the Adidas. The fact is he is on the verge of a huge new contract — the max under whatever the…

  15. Boston’s long-shot hope at landing Dwight Howard

    Jul 12, 2011, 10:32 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Nothing passes the time during the lockout like Dwight Howard speculation. Well, maybe speculation about players going to Europe next season, but Howard is a close second. Even if he keeps saying he wants to stay and the Magic plan on keeping him. Which brings us to the Boston Celtics. As things stand now they…

  16. Video: Dwight Howard and Josh Powell rap

    Jul 12, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    We bring you this because… well, because there’s a lockout. And it’s fairly amusing. Below we have NBA stars Dwight Howard and J-Peazy (Josh Powell) rapping all decked out like it was 1988, with gold chains, ill-fitting hats and everything except a Flava Flav clock. (Video via I am a GM and Terez Owens) This…

  17. Who are the most underpaid players in the NBA?

    Jul 6, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Last night we brought you the most overpaid players in the NBA, at least according to the Wages of Wins blog. But who are the best values? Who are the most underpaid according to the Wages of Wins blog? Not necessarily who you think. Often it can be good player still on a rookie deal.…

  18. Nets really want to land Dwight Howard. Shocking, I know.

    Jul 3, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Deron Williams has chosen his new agent, Jeff Schwartz, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. An agent with a lot of NBA pull and a roster of 20 clients he represents (including Paul Pierce, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and Lamar Odom). Williams can opt out of his contract next summer and is expected to do…

  19. Dwight Howard pokes fun at former teammate Carter

    Jun 29, 2011, 6:19 PM EDT

    Vince Carter Planking

    If you’re not familiar with “planking,” it refers to lying face-down on something and having somebody take a picture of you while doing it. It has become a popular meme lately, even among NBA players such as Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard. Today, Howard used the “planking” meme to take a jab at former teammate…

  20. Portland, Orlando talking swap of point guards Miller, Nelson

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    In what would be an interesting swap of styles and systems, the Orlando Magic and Portland Trail Blazers are talking about swapping point guards. That according to Jonathan Givony at DraftExpress, on twitter. Hearing Portland and Orlando are talking about swapping Andre Miller and Jameer Nelson, with the #21 pick going to Orlando. Orlando has…

  21. Dwight Howard thinks Arenas just wasn’t used right

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The rest of us saw a guy just past his prime. Not Magic GM Otis Smith, who traded for Gilbert Arenas (and his massive contract) last season because he thought Arenas could change the fortunes of the franchise. Dwight Howard saw the same thing. The Magic’s best player and the guy they desperately want to…

  22. Report: Warriors offered Monta Ellis for Dwight Howard

    Jun 18, 2011, 11:45 AM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Can’t blame the Warriors for trying. They are shopping Monta Ellis around (and not having great luck), they want to get more defensive, so why not go after the big fish? They did, according to a tweet from Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress. The Dwight Howard sweepstakes have begun. Golden State offered Monta Ellis, Andris Biedrins…

  23. LeBron James third highest earning athlete in America

    Jun 16, 2011, 1:53 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James shouldn’t flaunt that after he loses in the NBA finals he goes back to living a charmed life and we go back to our lives… but the dude is raking it in. According to Sports Illustrated, LeBron is the third highest earning athlete in the United States in 2011. Tiger Woods and Phil…

  24. Does Magic Johnson want the Lakers to trade for Dwight Howard?

    Jun 15, 2011, 8:21 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    I don’t know how many other ways to interpret a recent tweet from the legendary Laker point guard, which said that the “Lakers should think about calling the Orlando Magic.” (Johnson seems to have quickly deleted the tweet.) Howard will be a free agent after this season, and after the Magic’s first-round exit despite some…

  25. Bosh’s ex drags him into court over “Basketball Wives”

    Jun 15, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    One of these days I’ll have to watch an episode of “Basketball Wives” on VH1 to see what people are talking about. Right after I finish my lifelong dream of building the Eiffel Tower out of toothpicks. The mother of Chris Bosh’s child really wants to be on that show and enjoy all the perks…
