Dwight Howard

  1. Puerto Rico World All-Star game postponed, stick fork in tour

    Oct 28, 2011, 11:04 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    So much for that “see how much money we can make without the NBA” tour. After seemingly half the stars in the World All-Star Classic constellation pulled out in the past week, the first game — scheduled for Sunday in Puerto Rico — and the entire series now has been sucked into a black hole.…

  2. Dwight Howard latest to pull out of World All-Star Classic

    Oct 28, 2011, 4:28 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    And the players keep dropping out the World All-Star Classic set to start in Puerto Rico Sunday (Oct. 30) like it was some hastily thrown together event that was never going to live up to the hype. The latest is Dwight Howard, the Orlando Sentinel reports. They spoke to his agent who confirms the news.…

  3. World All Star Classic tour will go on, minus a few stars

    Oct 26, 2011, 10:55 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Kevin Durant

    It will be the biggest summer showcase yet — what the promoters are humbly calling a “showcase of unprecedented proportions” — with a galaxy of NBA stars. Just ignore the few black holes. Even after some defections there will be a World All-Star Classic tour, starting in Puerto Rico on Oct. 30 (Sunday). From there…

  4. Our survey said: Chris Paul to play “Family Feud”

    Oct 26, 2011, 6:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    “Let’s play the Feud!” Chris Paul is dragging along his family to be on an episode of “Family Feud,” reports the Times-Picayune (via SLAM).

  5. Big names lined up for “World All-Star Classic” tour (but not Rose)

    Oct 26, 2011, 12:44 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    The world-traveling exhibition tour that will feature a number of NBA players will get underway Saturday in Puerto Rico, with plenty of highlights to follow. Not a lot of defense, but a lot of highlights. And we’re starting to get a list of who is on board, via Chris Broussard at ESPN. Kobe Bryant, Dwight…

  6. Dwight Howard among latest planning charity games

    Oct 24, 2011, 2:24 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    As the NBA lockout drags on, the number of charity games featuring NBA players keeps increasing.

    Orlando is freaking out. Dwight Howard sounded like a guy with one foot out the door in Esquire Magazine, and Orlando sees history repeating itself. But Jameer Nelson isn’t worried. The point guard and second best Magic player (sorry Hedo, it’s true) told the Orlando Sentinel that Magic fans need to chill, that it wasn’t…

  8. Dwight Howard: “I don’t know what else I can do” in Orlando

    Oct 17, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Once the lockout clock mercifully stops, the “what will Dwight Howard do?” clock will start. (Chris Paul will have one, too, but that’s not our focus today.) Every time Howard speaks directly about Orlando, he says loving and glowing things. But ask him about his legacy and free agency — as Esquire Magazine did —…

  9. President Obama “a little heartbroken” over NBA lockout

    Oct 12, 2011, 8:32 AM EDT

    President Barack Obama

    President Barack Obama has problems, ones that dwarf yours and mine. In the best of times the president has life-or-death issues to deal with daily, and these are not the best of times. Like you and me, he needs an occasional escape rom those problems. Like you and me, the NBA and basketball can provide…

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Mike Krzyzewski — head coach of Team USA — has some brutal choices ahead of him next summer. Team USA is in the 2012 London Olympics and will come in the heavy favorite, but there are some other very good teams out there that could push the USA — Spain and Argentina come to mind,…

  14. Thunder, Magic players plan own mini-camp workouts

    Sep 15, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    kevin-durant-game-2

    Not everybody is going to Las Vegas to workout and play in a few games. While the “lockout league” is drawing the headlines it’s not drawing all the stars or even all the big teams. There are teams running their own minicamps, including the Thunder and Magic. The Thunder’s are doing their own mini-camp this…

  16. If you want to win in the NBA, forget point guards. Go big.

    Sep 5, 2011, 6:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    During the summer, we get a buzz watching John Wall say he is back and slash through guys at the Goodman league. Or watching Brandon Jennings cut it up at the Drew League. We relate to the normal sized guy who can find a way to get it done in the NBA. We love Derrick…

  17. Dwight Howard planking with 100 Chinese people

    Sep 2, 2011, 2:47 PM EDT

    howard-plank1

    Planking is dead. Your grandma knows what planking is, heck, she probably has done it with her friends in the mall. It just takes her a lot longer to get back up. But it’s not done for Dwight Howard and his friends in China. Below is a photo courtesy the twitter account of CNBC business…

  18. Video: Dwight Howard dunks on a giraffe in Japan

    Aug 31, 2011, 10:09 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

  19. Dwight Howard has hired free throw shooting guru

    Aug 26, 2011, 10:18 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    There are moments — crucial end-of-close-game moments — when Stan Van Gundy has to sit his best player, Dwight Howard. Or they can’t trust giving him the ball. Because Howard will get fouled, and he shot only 59.6 percent from the free throw line last year (which is pretty much right at his career average…

  20. Orlando mayor counting on new CBA to help team keep Howard

    Aug 22, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The mayor of Orlando is working hard to keep Dwight Howard in Orlando (remember he can and likely will opt out of his current deal next summer), taking part in online efforts to woo Howard. And he thinks he’s got some real help coming in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Here is what mayor Buddy…

  21. Kevin Durant is league’s best finisher at the rim

    Aug 18, 2011, 10:01 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant dunks

    Finishing a play at the rim is not that easy in the NBA. You think it’s just a layup but this is a league filled with long-armed, aggressive shot blockers who make the routine hard to do. If you go to the basket, you have to find a shot over or around them. Who does…

  22. Rapper The Game takes shot at LeBron, like everyone else

    Aug 16, 2011, 1:06 PM EDT

    ap_Rapper_The_Game_jt_110813_wg

    Is there anyone out there who has not gotten in their shot at LeBron and his hairline? Dwight Howard did it the other day on national television, and now on rapper The Game’s soon to be released “The R.E.D. Album,” he and some fellow rappers give LeBon James some shoutouts the baller would probably prefer didn’t happen.…

  23. Video: Dwight Howard pokes fun at LeBron’s hairline

    Aug 12, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Welcome to the lockout, when this will become a bigger story than it deserves. Dwight Howard was on BET’s “106th and Park” and was just doing some of his impersonations (he’s not bad at it). And when it got time to do Charles Barkley, Howard took another shot at LeBron’s hairline. This is nothing new,…

  24. Orlando, Dwight Howard wants you to know he loves you

    Aug 11, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    We passed along the tweets from Dwight Howard last week that he was frustrated with Orlando fans, that he wants them to be louder during the regular season. It wasn’t a fair criticism. Orlando just build a brand new stadium for the Magic and the fans have sold out 100 plus games. Knocking them came…

  25. Should the NBA age limit go up? One more year? Two?

    Aug 11, 2011, 2:16 PM EDT

    Lebron-James_draft

    Interesting tweet Thursday from Mike Rice, the college basketball coach at Rutgers (via Pete Thamel of the New York Times): I keep hearing NBA owners want to adopt same rule as NFL. Players will have to wait 3 yrs to enter the draft. I am not mentioning this because I trust the coaches sources, but…
