Dwight Howard

  1. 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 —…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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,…

  15. 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…

  16. Dwight Howard gets technical for tossing ball at heckler (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    Oh Dwight, you should know better. Dwight Howard was frustrated by late in the fourth quarter Wednesday night. His team had squandered most of the 18 point third quarter lead it had (the Rockets would eventually blow all of it and lose), Dirk Nowitzki was pretty much scoring at will, and some Mavericks fans had…

  17. Video: Rick Carlisle impersonates Gregg Popovich

    Nov 21, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Rick Carlisle

    Sometimes, it’s fun to be a jerk. I think most people recognize that, and that’s why so many get a kick out of Spurs coach Gregg Popovich belittling reporters, especially during between-quarter interviews. He has all the power in his relationship with the media, so there’s no incentive for him not act how he does…

  18. Watch Dallas erase 14-point fourth quarter deficit to beat Rockets (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Dallas Mavericks

    Houston seemed in control of this one — up 18 midway through the third quarter, 14 at the start of the fourth, Dwight Howard made his first 11 shots and had 27 points already and was having his way… Then it all changed. Dallas shot 73.7 percent in the fourth quarter, with Dirk Nowitzki putting…

  19. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  20. Hakeem Olajuwon sees Dwight Howard being too patient

    Nov 20, 2013, 10:58 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    Dwight Howard hasn’t played poorly — he’s averaging 17.2 points a game on 53.6 percent shooting, plus he’s pulling down 13.9 rebounds a game and impacting the defensive end of the floor. The Rockets are off to a good 8-4 start. But Hakeem Olajuwon is watching from half a world away — he is in…

  21. James Harden with between-the-legs assist on Brandon Bass (VIDEO)

    Nov 20, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    As if the Celtics weren’t embarrassed enough in their 109-85 loss to the Rockets, James Harden nutmegged Brandon Bass. The recipient of the between-the-legs assist was Terrence Jones, who had 24 points on 12 shots plus pulled down 9 boards in this game — the former Kentucky star is really starting to establish himself as…

  22. The Extra Pass: Gay, Wallace and D-Will on notice, plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    It’s early. Early, early, early. I don’t want to condemn anyone based on ten games, but it’s time to wonder what’s going on with Rudy Gay, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams. Rudy Gay – He’s been chucking, but his chucking has now reached historic levels. Through 11 games, Gay has shot under 40 percent from…

  23. Tuesday Night NBA Grades: We fail the entire Atlantic Division

    Nov 20, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    New York Knicks

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday, or what you missed while you were turning in your neighbor who stole monkeys and grew marijuana…  The entire Atlantic Division. With the losses Tuesday of the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics, Atlantic Division teams have now lost 14 games in a row. As…

  24. In wake of typhoon destruction, Filipino youth construct hoop to play some ball

    Nov 20, 2013, 1:04 AM EDT

    Philippines hoop 1

    These photos are just amazing. The Philippines is a basketball hotbed, a nation passionate about the NBA like few places outside the USA — the NBA sent the Rockets and Pacers there this preseason for a game (remember, Dwight Howard got “Kobe” chants — they know the game). It’s also a place devastated by Typhoon…

  25. Josh Smith says what we all knew: Atlanta made no effort to re-sign him

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Atlanta Hawks were moving on. Danny Ferry, formerly of the Spurs organization, went and poached Gregg Popovich’s lead assistant Mike Budenholzer, and they are trying to create San Antonio East in the ATL. With Al Horford in the role of Tim Duncan. Josh Smith wasn’t part of those plans. Smith will face the Hawks…
