Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard is a bit of a perfectionist, and this Magic team frustrates him. Read into that whatever you want about his future. Nenad Kristic says the injury and time away was tough for him. Tom Sanders was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame yesterday. If you just said “who?” then read this. The…

  2. Otis Smith will not consider trading Dwight Howard, no matter what

    Apr 2, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    Otis Smith talked to the Orlando Sentinel Friday night and gave what could commonly be considered the GM’s equivalent of “famous last words.” Dwight Howard‘s  a free agent in 2012. He’s made it pretty clear he’s going to enter free agency, while playing the oh-so-tactful play of “I love Orlando, I just want to win…

  3. Dwight Howard, Ron Artest named finalists for humanitarian award

    Mar 31, 2011, 7:25 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    Ron Artest, who once jumped into the stands and got suspended for a full season, and Dwight Howard, who currently leads the league in technical fouls, are both finalists for the Walter J. Kennedy Citizenship award. The award is given each year to an NBA figure who shows “outstanding service and dedication to the community.”…

  4. Dwight Howard says Magic are tired, need some days off

    Mar 31, 2011, 11:08 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Boston is slumping as they try to get guys healthy for the playoffs. San Antonio has lost four straight as guys sit trying to get healthy and rested for the playoffs. Dwight Howard looked around the Orlando locker room after his team lost to Atlanta Wednesday and told the Orlando Sentinel maybe there is something…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Atlanta makes a playoff statement to Orlando

    Josh Smith

    What you missed while eating out of your Death Star cookie jar… Orlando knocking off the Suns was our Game of the Night. Hawks 85, Magic 82: This was a preview of a first round playoff matchup in the east (Orlando is locked in at the four seed, Atlanta the five). These two teams met…

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard caved — he had his beard trimmed. He was the first Magic player to do so since they decided to grow playoff beards as a team. Fortunately for all of us, Stan Van Gundy is not playing along. If — really, when at this point — the Kings move to Anaheim, the Lakers…

  7. Don’t ask Shaq about facing Dwight Howard or Andrew Bynum in the playoffs

    Mar 25, 2011, 4:52 PM EDT

    shaq-dwight-howard

    Shaquille O’Neal has only appeared in 36 games for the Celtics this season, and hasn’t appeared in any since Feb. 1. But Boston didn’t add Shaq for the regular season, they added him with the hope that he’ll provide some size and depth at the center position for what the team hopes will be another…

  8. Derrick Rose will win MVP. There are better choices.

    Mar 24, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    Stan Van Gundy is right — Derrick Rose is going to win the MVP award this year. He has everybody including Michael Jordan’s endorsement. Influential media members are lining up behind him. The question is: Does he deserve it? Or, more accurately, do others deserve it more? You can make a good argument for Rose…

  9. Orlando Magic growing NHL-style playoff beards

    Mar 24, 2011, 10:05 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Playoff beards are an NHL tradition — you let it go as long as your team stays alive. So by the finals the guys look like Canadians who opted to be lumberjacks rather than hockey players (oh he’s a lumberjack and he’s okay, he sleeps all night and he works all day). Now Orlando is…

  10. Jimmy Fallon challenges Dwight Howard to random object shooting contest

    Mar 23, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    Howard Free Throws

    I’ll admit it, we bought my toddler daughter one of those mini basketball hoops and I’ve spent time trying to shoot rocks, charcoal briquettes, golf balls and anything else I can get my hands on through it. Consider this the adult version of that — Jimmy Fallon and Dwight Howard trying to shoot Shamrock Shakes…

  11. Abdul-Jabbar says Howard has “blind spots” in his game

    Mar 23, 2011, 6:11 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard is having a phenomenal season. The 25-year old center is scoring 3.3 more points per 40 minutes than he did a year ago, is the key player on one of the five best defenses in the NBA, is still a monster on the boards, and has a decent chance at winning his first…

  12. Dwight Howard went off again, must be on an MVP ballots

    Mar 17, 2011, 4:12 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    I don’t labor under the illusion that Dwight Howard is going to win the MVP. Derrick Rose seems to be pulling ahead in that race and if the Bulls keep winning (especially if they get the top spot in the East) he will be a deserving recipient. But Dwight Howard needs to be on the…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Orlando tries to throw it away but still wins

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:34 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What you missed while watching Wile. E. Coyote in 127 hours…. The latest beat down of the Heat, this time by the Thunder, was our game of the night. Magic 93, Bucks 89 (OT): The way the Magic played the end of regulation they are lucky to have won (and earned a playoff spout with…

  14. Players, David Stern find common ground: Stan Van Gundy annoys them

    Mar 15, 2011, 5:25 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    We’re looking for anything, any little sliver of hope we can find to help us believe that a lockout in the NBA is not inevitable. That somehow the owners and players can find some common ground. That David Stern and the players can sit down in a room and agree about something. Like they find…

  15. Kobe Bryant game-time decision Monday night

    Mar 14, 2011, 1:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Kobe Bryant played through a sprained ankle aggravated during the Lakers thumping of the Dallas Mavericks Saturday, but now that the ankle has had a couple days to really swell up and get sore, he is a game-time decision for Monday night’s big game against the Orlando Magic. So said Phil Jackson, and we trust…

  16. Dwight Howard can still dunk with plenty of power

    Mar 14, 2011, 8:05 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    This dunk came just minutes into the Magic’s win over the Suns, but it pretty much sums up the game — Robin Lopez had no answer for Dwight Howard, and neither did any other Suns players. Including Marcin Gortat. Mostly just consider this a reminder that for all the steps to round out his game…

  17. Marcin Gortat looks forward to facing former teammate Dwight Howard

    Mar 12, 2011, 9:39 PM EDT

    dwight-howard-marcin-gortat

    When the Suns host the Magic on Sunday, there will be a few interesting storylines to keep an eye on. The teams were involved in a six-player deal earlier this season, with key rotation players from both sides trading places. One of those players was Marcin Gortat, who played a minimal role behind Dwight Howard…

  18. David Stern wins war of words with Stan Van Gundy

    Mar 11, 2011, 11:13 PM EDT

    Image (1) davidstern-ap.jpg for post 2338

    First Stan Van Gundy said he wasn’t allowed to have an opinion on Dwight Howard’s technical because David Stern is essentially a Middle Eastern dictator in terms of allowing a diversity of opinion. Stern shot back that he wasn’t going to talk to Van Gundy but would speak to Orlando Magic management about Van Gundy’s…

  19. David Stern sends not so subtle message to Stan Van Gundy

    Mar 10, 2011, 2:03 PM EDT

    David Stern Press Conference

    Stan Van Gundy called NBA Commissioner David Stern a dictator. In so many words. He said Stern does not allow a diversity of opinions or people to express their thoughts. Stern is not amused. Hence his comments on ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd show Thursday. “I would just render a guess that we’re not going to…

  20. Michael Jordan says Derrick Rose is the MVP

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:18 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    Well, that’s about as big an endorsement as you can get. The five time MVP. The guy with the statue outside the United Center. The one and only Michael Jordan says that Derrick Rose is the MVP, according to ESPN Chicago. “MVP of the season,” Jordan said about Rose after the Bulls’ 101-84 win over…

  21. Race to MVP still has five players in the running

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    Derrick Rose is not your MVP. Not yet anyway. Dwight Howard is still making his case, while LeBron James’ candidacy is limping like the Heat the last five games. But that could turn around. Right now, we don’t know who the MVP is. Which is a good thing. A real race down the stretch is…

  22. Stan Van Gundy defends Dwight Howard, invites fine from Stern

    Mar 8, 2011, 2:56 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    That’s going to cost Stan Van Gundy. He probably thinks it’s money well spent. Monday, before Dwight Howard sat out the Magic’s loss due to a suspension for his 16th technical of the season, Magic coach Van Gundy came to Howard’s defense. Van Gundy went with the argument that has been used for Shaq, Kareem,…

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    Dwight Howard said what a lot of people have been thinking (and was willing to go farther than we were) when he was on the Dan Patrick Show this morning (via CSN Chicago, they have the video clip where Howard talks about a range of topics). Patrick asked him who was the best team in…

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:51 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    No Kendrick Perkins and Shaq hasn’t played in a month. That is making some Celtics fans uncomfortable. Dwight Howard on his suspension for getting a 16th technical (which he will serve Monday night): ‘I’ll try not to let the officiating affect the way I play. It’s very tough, but I’ve just got to do it.…

  25. It’s official, Dwight Howard suspended game for 16th technical

    Mar 5, 2011, 5:46 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    We told you last night this was coming, today the NBA league office worked on Saturday to make it a reality. Dwight Howard has been suspended for Monday’s Magic game against the Trail Blazers after picking up his 16th technical foul this season, announced Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President and disciplinarian. League rules call…
