Dwight Howard

  1. Not to put too fine a point on it, but this lockout could really doom the Magic

    Jul 16, 2011, 10:36 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The owners aren’t really cutting off their noses to spite their faces. It’s more of a self-provided lobotomy just to show the brain who’s boss. There are quite a few owners who have designated plans on a championship. And failing that, several of them are in pivotal moments for their franchise. A few wrong moves…

  2. Dwight Howard would choose China over Europe?

    Jul 13, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    This is a hypothetical exercise, Dwight Howard is not going to play overseas. He may say he is open to it but there is only in infinitesimal chance Dwight Howard would actually lace up the Adidas. The fact is he is on the verge of a huge new contract — the max under whatever the…

  3. Boston’s long-shot hope at landing Dwight Howard

    Jul 12, 2011, 10:32 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Nothing passes the time during the lockout like Dwight Howard speculation. Well, maybe speculation about players going to Europe next season, but Howard is a close second. Even if he keeps saying he wants to stay and the Magic plan on keeping him. Which brings us to the Boston Celtics. As things stand now they…

  4. Video: Dwight Howard and Josh Powell rap

    Jul 12, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    We bring you this because… well, because there’s a lockout. And it’s fairly amusing. Below we have NBA stars Dwight Howard and J-Peazy (Josh Powell) rapping all decked out like it was 1988, with gold chains, ill-fitting hats and everything except a Flava Flav clock. (Video via I am a GM and Terez Owens) This…

  5. Who are the most underpaid players in the NBA?

    Jul 6, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Last night we brought you the most overpaid players in the NBA, at least according to the Wages of Wins blog. But who are the best values? Who are the most underpaid according to the Wages of Wins blog? Not necessarily who you think. Often it can be good player still on a rookie deal.…

  6. Nets really want to land Dwight Howard. Shocking, I know.

    Jul 3, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Deron Williams has chosen his new agent, Jeff Schwartz, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. An agent with a lot of NBA pull and a roster of 20 clients he represents (including Paul Pierce, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and Lamar Odom). Williams can opt out of his contract next summer and is expected to do…

  7. Dwight Howard pokes fun at former teammate Carter

    Jun 29, 2011, 6:19 PM EDT

    Vince Carter Planking

    If you’re not familiar with “planking,” it refers to lying face-down on something and having somebody take a picture of you while doing it. It has become a popular meme lately, even among NBA players such as Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard. Today, Howard used the “planking” meme to take a jab at former teammate…

  8. Portland, Orlando talking swap of point guards Miller, Nelson

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    In what would be an interesting swap of styles and systems, the Orlando Magic and Portland Trail Blazers are talking about swapping point guards. That according to Jonathan Givony at DraftExpress, on twitter. Hearing Portland and Orlando are talking about swapping Andre Miller and Jameer Nelson, with the #21 pick going to Orlando. Orlando has…

  9. Dwight Howard thinks Arenas just wasn’t used right

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The rest of us saw a guy just past his prime. Not Magic GM Otis Smith, who traded for Gilbert Arenas (and his massive contract) last season because he thought Arenas could change the fortunes of the franchise. Dwight Howard saw the same thing. The Magic’s best player and the guy they desperately want to…

  10. Report: Warriors offered Monta Ellis for Dwight Howard

    Jun 18, 2011, 11:45 AM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Can’t blame the Warriors for trying. They are shopping Monta Ellis around (and not having great luck), they want to get more defensive, so why not go after the big fish? They did, according to a tweet from Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress. The Dwight Howard sweepstakes have begun. Golden State offered Monta Ellis, Andris Biedrins…

  11. LeBron James third highest earning athlete in America

    Jun 16, 2011, 1:53 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James shouldn’t flaunt that after he loses in the NBA finals he goes back to living a charmed life and we go back to our lives… but the dude is raking it in. According to Sports Illustrated, LeBron is the third highest earning athlete in the United States in 2011. Tiger Woods and Phil…

  12. Does Magic Johnson want the Lakers to trade for Dwight Howard?

    Jun 15, 2011, 8:21 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    I don’t know how many other ways to interpret a recent tweet from the legendary Laker point guard, which said that the “Lakers should think about calling the Orlando Magic.” (Johnson seems to have quickly deleted the tweet.) Howard will be a free agent after this season, and after the Magic’s first-round exit despite some…

  13. Bosh’s ex drags him into court over “Basketball Wives”

    Jun 15, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    One of these days I’ll have to watch an episode of “Basketball Wives” on VH1 to see what people are talking about. Right after I finish my lifelong dream of building the Eiffel Tower out of toothpicks. The mother of Chris Bosh’s child really wants to be on that show and enjoy all the perks…

  14. Dwight Howard does Haka with New Zealand rugby team

    Jun 14, 2011, 10:01 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    One of my favorite rituals to watch in all of sports is to see the New Zealand All Blacks — the national rugby team — perform the native Maori war dance the Haka before each game. One of the few sports rituals I would consider genuinely intimidating. (Confession, I enjoy watching rugby and we’ve got…

  15. Dwight Howard wants to stay in Orlando but things must change

    Jun 13, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    It’s really the same message he’s been sending for a while now, but in its most clear form yet. Dwight Howard would love to stay a member of the Orlando Magic, but he is going to test the free agent market in 2012. If Orlando does not win a title or make a big step…

  16. Dwight Howard says he is not signing an extension soon

    Jun 2, 2011, 3:32 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    From the twitter account of The Orlando Sentinel’s Joshua B. Robbins: Daniel Paulling, a reporter who attended @DwightHoward‘s function in ‘Bama 2day, reports DH said Ping’s ext. report is untrue. There’s no way around it, Orlando fans: with Orlando’s weak showing in last year’s playoffs, Howard’s talent and youth, and just how badly nearly every…

  17. Howard plans to hire shooting coach, work more with Olajuwon

    May 31, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The big news surrounding Dwight Howard today has to do with where he may or may not be playing in future seasons, but Howard also dropped some news about how he plans to improve his game this summer. Here’s the report, courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel’s Josh Robbins: In addition to traveling to Europe and…

  18. Report: Howard, Magic talking two-year extension

    May 31, 2011, 11:41 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Dwight Howard keeps talking about how he wants to win in Orlando, how people shouldn’t be talking about him moving on. But the only way silence the rumors is to sign an extension. Howard and the Magic are talking about a two-year extension and it only awaits his signature, according to Orlando’s Local 6 Sports…

  19. Dwight Howard tells Orlando fans he’s not Shaq

    May 31, 2011, 8:37 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Dwight Howard may have gotten mad at the Orlando Sentinel for it, but the speculation is everywhere — talk about where Howard will play next is rampant. He can opt out of his current deal in the summer of 2012 and that means if he wants he can put the Orlando Magic in the same…

  20. Report: Lakers have “dropped” on Dwight Howard’s list

    May 28, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    First off, if you’re a Magic fan, stop reading this. You’re only going to get frustrated and angry that the big mean media is once again making up stories about Dwight Howard when he clearly wants to re-sign in Orlando. After all, he said he loves the city! And who says that and then leaves?…

  21. Jim Buss heading Lakers may mean no Bynum trade

    May 26, 2011, 7:19 PM EDT

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    Among the favorite pastime of some Lakers fans is a game called “Where can we trade Andrew Bynum?” Kobe Bryant has even played this game before. Bynum has been offered up in deals ranging from Dwight Howard to a rack of shootaround basketballs. Those games may be over. One thing the hiring of Mike Brown…

  22. Unanimous LeBron James leads All-NBA First team

    May 12, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    He wasn’t the MVP, but LeBron James was the only player to be unanimously selected to the All-NBA first team. The actual MVP — Chicago’s Derrick Rose — and runner up Dwight Howard were both one vote short of being unanimous. Here are the teams. All NBA First Team: Forward: LeBron James, Miami Forward: Kevin…

  23. Dwight Howard takes shot at Orlando Sentinel for “dumb articles”

    May 10, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard has tried. Unlike LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, who seemed to revel in the attention of trade or free agency rumors (at least at first), Howard has tried to shut it down. He can be a free agent in the summer of 2012 but has refused to discuss it. Monday night, while the…

  24. Howard leads NBA All-Defensive team, but with Kobe?

    May 9, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 5: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    The votes on NBA All-Defensive team are often more about reputation than how somebody is actually performing. In theory coaches vote on this award, but it’s taken about as seriously as the coaches ballots in college football polls. Which means sometimes an assistant fills it out, sometimes the team PR guy, pretty much anyone but…

  25. Nine voters leave LeBron James off MVP ballot completely

    May 3, 2011, 7:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It’s time for the annual cry for transparency in the NBA’s MVP voting. Because if you’re a media member with an MVP vote, you should be able to defend your choices. If you are one of the seven people who did not vote Derrick Rose first, you should be able to explain that. And for…
