Dwight Howard

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

    Jan 5, 2012, 1:03 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 5, 2012, 10:52 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:14 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 4, 2012, 4:12 PM EST

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    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.…

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

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:29 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 3, 2012, 2:21 PM EST

    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,…

  7. Dwyane Wade says 2012 will be his last Olympics

    Jan 2, 2012, 2:48 PM EST

    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…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Blazers climb, Heat on top of mountain

    Jan 2, 2012, 1:35 PM EST

    Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James

    Lots of big moves up and down as the rankings start to shake themselves out a little. In college football they should hold off doing polls through those early weeks because said polls impact the postseason, but as the NBA has a playoff to determine who is best let’s dive in. 1. Heat (5-0, last…

  9. Deron Williams “frustrated” with losing in New Jersey

    Jan 2, 2012, 12:28 PM EST

    Deron Williams, Dwight Howard

    Things are ugly in New Jersey — and they could get a lot worse. The Nets fell to 1-4 Sunday after getting handled by the Cavaliers on Sunday. They are not a good team. The only thing that would make it worse is if they lost Deron Williams to free agency this summer… so maybe…

  10. Report: Rose on verge of $250 million deal with Adidas

    Dec 30, 2011, 9:55 PM EST

    Derrick Rose Playing Fans at 'Run with D Rose'

    Derrick Rose said at the press conference for his recent contract extension that he really doesn’t know how much money he makes. Let me help you out a bit Derrick — you are about to make mountains of cash. Adidas is about to give Rose a lifetime contract worth about $250 million, according to ESPN.…

  11. Stan Van Gundy willing to help Thunder out by taking Durant off their hands

    Dec 30, 2011, 11:19 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Selfless. Really, that is the best word to describe Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. Reporters in Orlando were talking with Van Gundy about the alleged rift between Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant when Van Gundy came up with an inspired solution, according to the Oklahoman (via Ball Don’t Lie). “I think it’s very serious, and…

  12. Friday And-1 links (and the truth about height measurements)

    Dec 30, 2011, 10:48 AM EST

    Barea of Puerto Rico and NBA team Dallas Mavericks celebrates with his teammates after their win over Mexico during their men's final basketball game at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara

    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 are the guys in the NBA not nearly as tall as listed? Well, if J.J. Barea is 6’0” then I am looking down on…

  13. Rent-a-Dwight. Magic listening to trade offers from all teams.

    Dec 30, 2011, 9:28 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard is trying to control the process — he has given the Magic a list of places he is willing to sign a contract extension if traded (Dallas, New Jersey and with the Los Angeles Lakers). But the Magic are hoping other teams will jump in with bids to rent the superstar center for…

  14. Baseline to baseline recaps: Kevin Durant is an assassin

    Dec 30, 2011, 8:46 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

    What you missed while watching an octopus pick the BCS matchups…. Lakers 99, Knicks 82: We broke this down as our game of the night. Thunder 104, Mavericks 102: This was easily the best game the Mavericks have played this season. The ball movement was back, the clever veteran plays were there. Delonte West said…

  15. Dwight Howard and Deron Williams had dinner. OMG!

    Dec 29, 2011, 4:55 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    This is going to get blown out of proportion, no matter how much I try to tamp it down here. Even if I tell you this kind of thing happens all the time. Deron Williams went to dinner with Dwight Howard Wednesday night, reports the Star Ledger (via Eye on Basketball). The Nets are in…

  16. McGrady can picture Howard and D-Will in Dallas

    Dec 29, 2011, 12:33 PM EST

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    As they are the two guys left in the game of “franchise player musical chairs,” it is kind of logical Deron Williams and Dwight Howard could end up on the same team. That is certainly what New Jersey has banked its Brooklyn opening on. But what about Dallas? Mark Cuban has all but sacrificed a…

  17. Making the case for Rajon Rondo as a franchise player

    Dec 28, 2011, 6:20 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    We keep hearing rumors that Rajon Rondo is on the trade block — it had been for Chris Paul but the Celtics will listen to other offers, too. They are not going to move him for just anyone, but he’s not the easiest player to get along with and Boston is keeping its options open.…

  18. Tyson Chandler not shocked at Mavericks 0-2 start

    Dec 28, 2011, 1:18 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    The Dallas Mavericks have gone from hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy to getting blown out two games in a row on their home floor to start the season. It’s ugly. Younger teams ran the Mavs into the ground and Dallas’ transition defense was nonexistant. It should get better, but it’s ugly now and next up…

  19. Deron Williams wants some help in New Jersey. Ya think?

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:09 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    Reading Deron Williams‘ comments in the New York Times, you get the idea that Williams likes living in New York. He is living in SoHo with his family and commuting to New Jersey, plus doing charity work in Brooklyn. He’s happy there. He was at a party Tuesday night in SoHo to celebrate his partnership…

  20. Report: Magic want veterans, not to rebuild after Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 8:08 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Right now, the Dwight Howard soap opera is on hiatus. The Magic have stopped all trade talk and are focusing on this season and convincing Howard to stay in Orlando. I’m pretty sure opening day did not help their cause. In the least. Eventually Orlando is going to have to trade Howard. His demand is…

  21. Baseline to baseline recaps: Dallas has some issues

    Dec 27, 2011, 7:48 AM EST

    Chris Andersen, Vince Carter,

    What you missed while out celebrating Boxing Day…. Kings 100, Lakers 91: We covered this one already in our game of the night. Nuggets 115, Mavericks 93: Mavericks forward Sean Williams threw up when subbed out in the fourth quarter of this game, which got a lot of laughs on the Mavs bench but pretty…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

  23. Is Adidas keeping Dwight Howard out of Chicago?

    Dec 26, 2011, 1:45 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Bulls fans don’t get why Dwight Howard doesn’t have the Bulls on his list of teams where he will sign an extension. The Bulls are big market team, they are contenders with a good core of role players, and with Howard and Derrick Rose they would be in title contention for a decade. Plus Chicago…

  24. Five things we learned watching the NBA on Christmas

    Dec 26, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Heat forward James and guard Wade laugh during the closing minutes against the Mavericks in Dallas, Texas

    The NBA gave five Christmas day presents to the fans… which were really more like belated birthday gifts disguised as Christmas gifts because we should have opened the NBA season on Nov. 1. But we’ll forgive and move on, like we do with family around the holidays. We’re just glad to have the NBA back.…

  25. Lakers still aren’t going to trade Bynum and Gasol for Howard

    Dec 26, 2011, 10:57 AM EST

    Mike Brown, Pau Gasol

    There’s a feeling out there that the Lakers are going to cave — that they are eventually going to agree to trade both Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol to get Dwight Howard. That’s the feeling in Orlando, where they sit on Howard waiting for the deals to improve. (Or him to change his mind, but…
