Dwight Howard

  1. Quote of the Day: Dwight Howard zings Big Baby

    Jan 24, 2012, 6:40 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Asked what Glen Davis brings to the Magic… “Food. Drinks. By the time he brings the food, there’s no food left. He usually eats it before he brings it to the table.” —Dwight Howard, talking about the former Celtic and his penchant for enjoying a good meal. A large good meal. From WEEI, via The…

  2. Cuban calls NBA players in Olympics “epitome of stupidity”

    Jan 24, 2012, 5:27 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    In the ongoing “club vs. country” debate that rages through soccer, basketball and other sports, Mark Cuban has long been clearly on the side of the clubs. Which makes sense because he owns one. He pays a lot of money, hypothetically, to a tall German forward who went and played for his national team this…

  3. NBA quarter pole awards: Yes, LeBron is the MVP

    Jan 24, 2012, 2:37 PM EST

    Miami Heats' LeBron James plays against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    We are a quarter of the way into the NBA season, which is far too early to start talking about end of the season awards, playoffs or much of anything else. I’m going to anyway. Here are the awards in a few categories as we reach the quarter pole. We’ve got a long back stretch…

  4. Tuesday And-1 links: Learn about the Van Gundy brothers

    Jan 24, 2012, 11:22 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    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). Tonight (Tuesday), HBO’s Real Sports will profile the Van Gundy brothers — broadcaster (and former coach Jeff) and current Magic coach Stan. They talk about…

  5. Boston plays best game of season, routs Orlando. Don’t read much into it.

    Jan 24, 2012, 12:55 AM EST

    Kevin Garnette

    For one night, it felt like 2008 in Boston again. The Celtics played with tremendous defensive energy, shutting off driving lanes and seeming to choke off whatever the opposing offense wanted to do. They contained Dwight Howard and chased down a lot of three-point shooters. Boston set a franchise record for fewest points allowed. The…

  6. Rumors everywhere, but Grizzlies not planning Mayo trade

    Jan 23, 2012, 9:56 PM EST

    O.J. Mayo, Andrew Bynum

    O.J. Mayo shows up in almost as many trade rumors as Dwight Howard. The Grizzlies shopped him around last year, when he was having a rough season, and there were so many rumors it seemed like he was destined to be gone. But things are different this year — Mayo is having his best season,…

  7. Gasol not thrilled with Lakers offense, wants more post touches

    Jan 23, 2012, 7:51 PM EST

    Pau Gasol, Shane Battier, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh

    One of the reasons the triangle offense worked for the Lakers is that Pau Gasol can pass or knock down the jumper from the elbow. He has a polished set of skills on the low block, too. In the Lakers new offense Gasol gets a lot more touches at the elbow or in the midrange,…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls on top after quarter of season

    Jan 23, 2012, 2:48 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Believe it or not, we are about a quarter of the way through the condensed NBA season already. And with that, these rankings are starting to take some solid shape. Which is bad news for Celtics and Knicks fans. But it’s all good in Chicago. 1. Bulls (15-3, last week ranked No. 1). If Derrick…

  9. David Stern doesn’t see what the big deal is about players leaving their teams

    Jan 22, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    David Stern

    In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, David Stern put on the old jousting tights and once again decided to do a little dance around the media. In a wide ranging interview, Stern discussed his relationship with ownership, old and new, the effect of the lockout on injuries (surprise, he says there isn’t one), and…

  10. Dwight Howard’s pining for point guard help is kind of crushing Jameer Nelson’s soul

    Jan 22, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Imagine you’re working on a project with a guy. Your careers depend on it. Now, your partner is an exceptional talent, he’s one of the best guys in the business at what you do. But he needs a complimentary guy with your specific skills. If things go well, you’re looking at being the best in…

  11. Dwight Howard tells Shaq to “get on with his life”

    Jan 20, 2012, 6:50 PM EST

    Dwight Howard Shaquille O'Neal

    Shaquille O’Neal loves to needle Dwight Howard. Why? Mostly because he’s Shaq, but there is that whole silly “Superman” thing (Shaq’s nickname but a persona Howard used to win the dunk contest in 2008). Now, Shaq’s got a big megaphone on TNT’s Inside the NBA. National broadcast where he can and did say Andrew Bynum…

  12. Deron Williams has a wish list, too. Nets are on top for now.

    Jan 20, 2012, 4:41 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    The conventional wisdom has been that if the Nets could not land another star to join Deron Williams in New Jersey this season or Brooklyn next season, he would opt out this summer — crushing the Nets franchise that gave up a lot to get him — and heading to his hometown of Dallas next…

  13. Report: Magic may keep Howard, try to land Steve Nash

    Jan 20, 2012, 4:19 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    More and more, it feels like the Orlando Magic may not trade Dwight Howard — despite Howard’s trade request still being on the table — do what they can to keep him and roll the dice that he doesn’t opt out of his contract and walk away leaving them nothing this summer. How do they…

  14. Lakers, Magic not talking Dwight Howard trade; Kobe is talking to him

    Jan 20, 2012, 9:04 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Only one thing — a potential Dwight Howard trade to the Lakers — is going to get talked about more than how lost the Lakers offense looks in the next 24 hours. With Los Angeles headed into Orlando for a Friday showdown, let’s do a trade update: There isn’t one. The two sides are not…

  15. NBA All-Star starting teams pretty much set already

    Jan 19, 2012, 2:48 PM EST

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    You can keep voting on the NBA All-Star Game players through the end of the month — you can vote every day between now and then, if your heart so desires. It’s not going to matter, the All-Star Game starters are pretty locked in. The NBA released the second round of All-Star balloting returns on…

  16. Brook Lopez will not be getting extension from New Jersey

    Jan 19, 2012, 2:12 PM EST

    Brook Lopez, Jared Jeffries

    Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook have got their extensions to their rookie deals, and most likely Kevin Love will get one before the deadline next Wednesday. Brook Lopez will not. That’s what Nets GM Billy King told ESPNNewYork.com. “I’m sure I’ll have a conversation with his agent [Arn Tellem],” King told reporters before Wednesday night’s…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s Bizzaro World night in NBA

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:05 AM EST

    Andray Blatche Wizards

    What you missed while watching the Australian Open and thinking “I need to go to vacation there”…. Wizards 105, Thunder 102: Yes, you are reading that right. The worst team in the NBA (1-12 entering the game) just beat a title contender (12-2 before this started). It gets weirder — Oklahoma City shot 48.1 percent…

  18. Clippers not willing to trade Blake Griffin for Dwight Howard

    Jan 18, 2012, 6:42 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    We all knew this instinctively, because it’s the only smart choice. Now maybe this rumor can die. League officials have confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that while Dwight Howard may have interest in them the Clippers are not willing to trade Blake Griffin for Howard — and the Magic are not interested in the…

  19. Andrew Bynum sings the praises of Dwight Howard

    Jan 18, 2012, 1:14 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Friday night Andrew Bynum lines up against Dwight Howard as the Lakers face the Magic in Orlando. So, please use this small sample size to decide that Bynum should/should not be traded for Howard. We all know one game tells you all you need to know, not how a player performs over a stretch of…

  20. Quote of the Day: Dwight Howard’s new trade destination

    Jan 18, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    “Sources say Dwight Howard is signing with the Harlem Globetrotters.” —Dwight Howard to the Orlando Sentinel. Howard had been asked about the report the Los Angeles Clippers were on his trade destination list, Howard responded with a “no” and then his standard line about him being on the Magic right now and that is all that…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: One half of Heat bests half of Spurs

    Jan 18, 2012, 2:13 AM EST

    Heat small forward James reacts after the Heat tied the game with the Spurs in the second half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while buying the paintings of a squirrel… Heat 120, Spurs 98: It was a tale of two halves. In the first half the Spurs controlled the tempo and forced the heat into the half court. LeBron James, fighting a cold that might have kept him home if Dwyane Wade could have played,…

  22. GMs predict Heat to win title, Kevin Durant MVP

    Jan 17, 2012, 2:45 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    The annual NBA survey of team general managers is out and — shockingly — they think the Miami Heat are very good. Same with that Kevin Durant guy. So, they see the world pretty much like the rest of this. In the annual survey of team executives, 74.1 percent of the GMs think the Miami…

  23. However you build it, U.S. Olympic team will be very good

    Jan 17, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    We don’t know exactly what the U.S. Olympic team will look like in London. We know the pool of players — the 20 finalists — the roster will come from. And we know a couple other things: Mike Krzyzewski and staff have some hard choices ahead of them. This team will be very, very good.…

  24. Dwight Howard keeps his cool as trade rumors swirl

    Jan 17, 2012, 12:01 PM EST

    Magic's Howard listens to the National Anthem before their NBA basketball game against the Kings in Sacramento

    It’s the Clippers. No, it’s still the Nets. No, the Lakers. And Orlando still loves you! Rumors are swirling around Dwight Howard like he’s an honorary Kardashian, but he is keeping his cool, keeping his head down and winning games. And for now that is working. The latest rumor to come up was that the…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe passed with the game on the line

    Jan 17, 2012, 3:38 AM EST

    Lamar Odom, Kobe Bryant,

    What you missed while trying to figure out how to pay off your $44 million hospital bill…. Thunder 97, Celtics 88: Boston’s fifth loss in a row was our game of the night. Lakers 73, Mavericks 70: The Lakers won this game — and were the better shooting team — hitting 38.2 percent of their…
