Dwight Howard

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Derrick Rose officially named MVP

    May 3, 2011, 5:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    We knew it was coming, seemingly forever, and as should be expected it was a runaway. Derrick Rose is the NBA’s MVP. The youngest ever at age 22. The most recent in Chicago Bull to win it since that guy with the statue out in front of the United Center. Rose becomes only the second…

  6. Report (we all believe): Derrick Rose to be named MVP Tuesday

    May 2, 2011, 10:17 PM EDT

    derrick Rose bulls

    At this point even LeBron James‘ mom has accepted that Derrick Rose is going to be MVP. That announcement is going to officially come Tuesday, according to a Aggrey Sam at CSN Chicago. Rose was the engine of the offense of a Chicago Bulls team that won 62 games. Actually, that understates it. He was…

  7. Just so we’re clear, the Magic aren’t trading Howard

    Apr 29, 2011, 12:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Dwight Howard is not talking about Dwight Howard the free agent. But theoretically next season Howard could turn the Magic into this season’s Denver Nuggets — he could use the threat of his free agency to force a trade. But that’s not happening either. Magic GM Otis Smith made that clear as possible to ESPN…

  8. Dwight Howard tries to kill free agency rumors. Good luck with that.

    Apr 29, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Give Dwight Howard this — he is trying. LeBron James made a half-hearted effort to stamp out the free agent rumor circus around him, but at first he seemed to enjoy the attention enough that he let the fire start and by the time he tried to put it out it was too late. Carmelo…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta wins ugly, but moves on to the second round

    Apr 29, 2011, 1:23 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    In all honesty, I would never wish repeat viewing of the Atlanta Hawks’ series-clinching victory over the Orlando Magic on my worst enemy. The on-court product was brutal. Neither team could convert any of their shots, the turnovers were many, and the execution on the whole was fairly awful. Atlanta’s 39.2 percent shooting from the…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Hawks look for close out, Magic look for threes

    Apr 28, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Five

    The dynamics of this series — the dynamics that put the Atlanta up 3-1 and give them to close out Orlando on Thursday night at home in Game 6 — have not changed. Atlanta will largely single-cover Dwight Howard and he will put up impressive numbers. Hedo Turkoglu will stink. Jamal Crawford will again have…

  11. NBA Playoffs: Magic demolish the Hawks, turn the series on its head

    Apr 26, 2011, 10:44 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Five

    On Tuesday night, the Orlando Magic returned to the comforts of reality, while the Atlanta Hawks experienced a jarring awakening. The first four games in this series weren’t an accurate representation of the performance of either team, but Game 5 shifted the matchup back toward balance, as Orlando thoroughly dominated both ends of the court…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Orlando can create shots or create vacation plans

    Apr 26, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    The reason the Atlanta Hawks are up 3-1 in this series and can close out the Orlando Magic tonight — and the difference between the 2009 Magic that went to the finals and the 2011 Magic about to be eliminated in the first round — was summed up nicely by Stan Van Gundy (via ESPN):…

  13. Dwight Howard wins judgment against his child’s mother

    Apr 25, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    I am so hard pressed to find anything good for anyone in this situation — or anything really worth poking fun at — that I am just going to lay out the facts. Then go take a shower because I feel dirty. Dwight Howard has won a $500,000 judgment against Royce Reed, the mother of…

  14. Now what, New York Knicks?

    Apr 25, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    If you asked any Knicks fan before the season if they would take a trip to the playoffs and a trade that brings them Carmelo Anthony this season, they would have taken it. But it’s premature to hang the “Mission Accomplished” banner. The Knicks accomplished goals and a good season. You can say they are…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta takes Game 4, Orlando is still searching

    Apr 24, 2011, 11:46 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    We’re well past a mere first round scare or claims of an “upset alert.” With an 88-85 win in Game 4, the Atlanta Hawks have pushed the fourth-seeded Orlando Magic to the very edge of their playoff lives, a considerable achievement considering the regular season profiles of both teams. The Magic were the league’s fourth…

  16. Hawks’ Pachulia, Magic’s Richardson both suspended for Game 4

    Apr 23, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The only real question was would it be one game or two. The answer is one. The league announced a one-game suspension for both Zaza Pachulia of Atlanta and Jason Richardson of Orlando for their scuffle in the fourth quarter of Game 3 Wednesday. Both will sit out Game 4 Sunday. The whole thing started…

  17. Orlando’s mid-season trade not reason for trouble (they were bad before)

    Apr 23, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Magic head coach Van Gundy reacts during Game 3 of their NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference basketball game against Hawks in Atlanta

    Orlando is in trouble. They are down 2-1 to the Atlanta Hawks, a team that through the regular season and into the playoffs has shown its matchup advantages are hard for Orlando to overcome. Now the Magic face a virtual must-win Game 4 and likely will have to do it without Jason Richardson, who probably…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Hawks take series lead in crazy game

    Apr 23, 2011, 12:44 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Orlando Magic are in some serious trouble against a team that gave up more points than it scored in the regular season. Game 3 could have gone either way, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Magic are a team built around Dwight Howard and versatile shooters, and the versatile shooters have failed…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Maybe the Hawks can use more Horford in Game 3

    Apr 22, 2011, 4:33 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Two

    Now the Orlando/Atlanta series moves on to Game 3 on a neutral court… wait, it’s in Atlanta? Interesting. We’ll see if anyone notices. Seriously, the Hawks fans will be into it if the Hawks are into it. And in it. Whether the Hawks are in it may depend in part on how much run Al…

  20. Magic fans launch StayDwight.com

    Apr 20, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    And the campaign has begun. Well, really the campaign to keep Dwight Howard with the Orlando Magic began when Otis Smith made sweeping changes looking to upgrade the Magic roster this season by bringing in Hedo Turkoglu and Gilbert Arenas. Seeing how well that worked, some Magic fans have launched a Web Site — StayDwight.com…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Magic defense edges out Hawks in Game 2

    Apr 20, 2011, 12:59 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Two

    The Orlando Magic still haven’t figured out how to get consistent offensive production out of their perimeter players, but they made one drastic improvement from Game 1 to Game 2: the Magic defense is now in full effect. Atlanta played a competitive game by putting up a strong defensive front of their own and hitting…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta out to prove Game 1 wasn’t a fluke

    Apr 19, 2011, 5:47 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Josh Smith, Kirk Hinrich

    The conventional wisdom about Game 1 of this series misses the point. As our own Matt Moore pointed out, what Atlanta did to the Magic was what teams used to do to Michael Jordan, what teams have tried to do to Steve Nash in recent years — let him score, make him a shooter. Don’t…

  23. Orlando loss casts shadow over Dwight Howard’s future

    Apr 18, 2011, 3:36 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard dunks on Jrue Holiday

    Magic fans don’t want to draw the line connecting the dots. You can’t blame them. But the loss to Atlanta seemed to move those dots toward being in a straight line. And if things don’t change Dwight Howard could connect them himself and devastate the Orlando franchise. The starting point is here: every time Dwight…

  24. Dwight Howard named Defensive Player of Year. Again.

    Apr 18, 2011, 1:33 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard, right, blocks a shot by Atlanta Hawks' Etan Thomas (36) during the first half of Game 1 of a first-round NBA playoff basketball series in Orlando, Fla

    UPDATE 1:33 pm: It’s official, Dwight Howard has a three-peat as the NBA Defensive Player of the Year. “I want to thank my teammates for allowing their men to get to the basket again, forcing me to block shots and pick up fouls, and sometimes technical fouls,” Howard joked at the press conference. Or half…

  25. NBA Playoffs: Dwight’s one-man show comes up short against Hawks

    Apr 17, 2011, 12:29 AM EDT

    Screen shot 2011-04-16 at 11.21.47 PM

    One couldn’t possibly expect, ask, or demand more of Dwight Howard than the Magic center gave in Game 1, and yet the Atlanta Hawks were somehow still able to take an early series lead with an efficient opening salvo. Atlanta is clearly equipped to compete in this series, and though they took a brutal 46-point,…
