Dwight Howard

  1. Catching up with Lenny Cooke, the former can’t-miss kid

    Mar 6, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Lenny Cooke

    So many things can happen to high-school phenoms. Kobe Bryant is a five-time NBA champion. LeBron James is a two-time MVP. Dwight Howard is the best center in basketball. Sebastian Telfair is a mediocre backup point guard who has bounced around the league. Jeremy Tyler is currently trying to pay his dues in the D-League.…

  2. Report: Nets GM King “considered” shutting Brook Lopez down for season

    Mar 6, 2012, 5:19 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    Nets center Brook Lopez missed the first 32 games of this season with a broken right foot. Recently, Lopez sprained his right ankle. He is expected to be out for around 3 weeks, but Nets GM Billy King has reportedly considered shutting down his young center for the remainder of the season. From Colin Stephenson…

  3. Magic GM says 6 to 8 teams pushing for Dwight Howard

    Mar 6, 2012, 11:37 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Apparently there are a number of teams in the “rent-a-Howard” market. The latest news on the Dwight Howard trade front is that while teams are lining up for a shot to get him even if it is for just the rest of this season, right now there is no movement. We cannot emphasize this enough…

  4. Tuesday And-1 links: Kyrie Irving will not play for Australia

    Mar 6, 2012, 11:08 AM EDT

    Cavaliers Irving reacts to making a three point basket in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    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). Kyrie Irving is not going to be on Team USA in London in 2012, but he had a standing offer from Australia (he was born…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Love outduels Blake Griffin

    Mar 6, 2012, 7:43 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is fouled by Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Evans in Minneapolis

    What you missed while buying way more Girl Scout cookies than you really should… Thunder 95, Mavericks 92: Oklahoma City scored the final eight points to win another close contest, which was our game of the night. Timberwolves 95, Clippers 94: With all their mistakes late, I have no idea how the Timberwolves pulled this…

  6. Nets’ Lopez out 3 weeks with sprained ankle. Now what for Howard trade?

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:24 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    We warned you that Brook Lopez’s ankle sprain early in the third quarter Sunday was pretty bad. You know it is not good when the coach will not address it after the game, saying they need to wait a day. The good news is that X-rays came back negative, but the bad news is that…

  7. Lots of people who Pau Gasol will not save want Pau Gasol

    Mar 4, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol compete for the ball in Boston

    It’s really interesting to watch the evolution of a player like Pau Gasol, not only from the public’s consciousness perspective, but from that nebulous aspect of basketball which metrics can’t define. Our ability to define efficiency and production is better than ever and shouldn’t be disregarded when considering Gasol’s value. But there is another part…

  8. Report: Clippers interested in Ray Allen

    Mar 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Clippers have struggled without Chauncey Billups, missing their legitimate shooter at 2-guard and his ability to help manage the offense alongside CP3. (Who would have thought he’d need help?) So the Clippers have started showing up in trade rumors, and the latest one is both intriguing and bizarre.…

  9. Magic front office still feels time is on their side

    Mar 2, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Right now, the Orlando Magic are heeding the advice of the Rolling Stones. They think time is on their side (yes it is). With the NBA trade deadline now less than two weeks away, the Dwight Howard saga remains in the same groove it has been for months — the Magic are trying to convince…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Thunder comeback

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Ryan Anderson

    What you missed while taking Google to court because their “street view” map option caught you urinating in your front yard…. Miami 107, Trail Blazers 93: This score doesn’t do justice to how much the Heat dominated this game, which we broke down as our game of the night. Thunder 105, Magic 102: Who says…

  11. Video: David Stern talks Lin, lockout, more with Bob Costas

    Mar 1, 2012, 10:40 PM EDT

    David Stern

    David Stern swung by Costas Tonight (on the NBC Sports Network) to do an interview that felt like old times — Bob Costas and Stern talking was a regular thing back in the NBA on NBC days. As you would expect, it’s a good interview. They covered everything from Jeremy Lin to the Hornets sale…

  12. Dwight Howard may land a lot of places, but not with Knicks

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:47 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Any time a superstar is on the move via free agency, there are a couple teams that just automatically come up in the conversation. Whether there is anything to it or not. Fans will bring it up, rumors will get flowing, logic be damned. Like Dwight Howard to the Knicks. New York already has a…

  13. Magic try to bring in players like Nash not ship Howard out

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Steve Nash Dwight Howard

    Orlando is not ready to trade Dwight Howard. They may not be by March 15, but they certainly are not right now. In fact, multiple reports have them working the phones trying to bring in more talent to put around Howard rather than ship him out. And they know to keep him they can’t just…

  14. Video: Metta World Peace in Kevin Hart movie clip

    Feb 29, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    I think Kevin Hart was in more places All-Star Weekend than Dwight Howard. He was MVP of the Celebrity Game. He was the hardest working man in show business promoting his new movie, “Think Like a Man,” coming to a theater near you soon. With that guy who played Turtle in Entourage. Here is a…

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

    Feb 29, 2012, 12:41 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 29, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 28, 2012, 7:54 PM EDT

    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…

  18. All-Star Weekend draws great ratings

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 28, 2012, 11:15 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 28, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    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…

    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…

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

    Feb 27, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    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…
