Dwight Howard

  1. You can play H-O-R-S-E against Dwight Howard. No dunks, though.

    Aug 19, 2010, 9:20 AM EDT

    Can you consistently knock down free throws? If so, you stand a good chance of beating Dwight Howard in H-O-R-S-E. And if you have the money, you can get to play him. Howard is auctioning off the chance to play H-O-R-S-E against him to raise money for Usher’s New Look Foundation (hat tip to CNBC’s…

  2. There's a logjam in Atlanta and something's got to give

    Aug 8, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    Al Horford is often talked about as undersized at center. He’s 6-10, but built like a power-forward, with long arms, great athleticism, and not so wide of a base like so many 5′s. The Hawks have made a ton of noise about adding a legit center this offseason, or at least aiming for some depth…

  3. Bollywood basketball in the rain — all we need is Dwight Howard

    Aug 5, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    Hey, are you like, checkin’ me out? Dwight Howard is headed to India to promote the NBA in a country where basketball is the sport you play as a child, until you grow up and play cricket like real men. Unless it is a sexy basketball scene in the rain, then Bollywood is good with…

  4. Can the Heat be beat inside?

    Aug 5, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Nobody is going to be better than the Miami Heat at the two, three and four spots. But picture them playing Orlando. Jameer Nelson has the ball (guarded by Mario Chalmers) and Dwight Howard (covered by Joel Anthony) comes out to set the high pick. That is a hard-to-stop P&R combo for any team, and…

  5. NBA sending Dwight Howard to India to make basketball the next cricket

    Aug 4, 2010, 2:19 PM EDT

    China is the world’s most populous country, and the NBA has made very public efforts to woo that country. Including the Rockets and Nets going to play a couple preseason games this October. India is the second most populous country on the planet, but the NBA has largely ignored them. Until now. The league announced…

  6. And the season schedule leaks begin: Orlando to open new arena against Heat Oct. 28

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:35 AM EDT

    As it always does, the NBA has grand plans — they are going to unveil their opening games and the highlights (such as Christmas Day) on an NBATV special Tuesday night (7pm Eastern, if you want to set your DVR). But as our own Matt Moore noted at the time, it’s going to be hard…

  7. All of a sudden, Dwight Howard is the voice of reason

    Jul 31, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has never been accused of being the coolest cucumber in the refrigerator. He’s generally considered a silly young buck. But in a recent interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he showed a tremendous amount of perspective regarding how teams build themselves for the playoffs, and the treacherous nature of building…

  8. Orlando Magic keeping Stan Van Gundy, Otis Smith around a few more years

    Jul 28, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    Bombs away, Orlando. The system of Dwight Howard in the paint and host of guys chucking up threes around him is not going anywhere soon — the Orlando Magic have extended the contracts of coach Stan Van Gundy and General Manager Otis Smith through 2013, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Smith is now the president…

  9. Dwight Howard on the Heat: "They're not going to be the best team in the NBA next year"

    Jul 27, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

      Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo have been sharing notes in class, apparently. No shock that the top teams — led by the top competitors — see what happened in Miami and want to take it on. There’s no shortage of people around the league that want to knock the Heat down a notch or…

  10. Dwight Howard, Chris Paul nominated for International Bowling Hall of Fame. Seriously.

    Jul 13, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    It all comes down to this roll. Dwight Howard, a man-child, with a dream to topple bowling giant Chris Paul. If he strikes, he’s the 1979 Odor-Eaters Champion. He’s got one foot in the frying pan and one in the pressure cooker. Believe me, as a bowler, I know that right about now, your bladder…

  11. Dwight Howard wants to play with Chris Paul. Jameer who?

    Jun 30, 2010, 11:59 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard wants to win. He got a taste of it, he got to the doorstep of a title two years ago. Last year, there was Boston. The retooled — good bye Hedo, hello Vince — Magic could not match up. Jameer Nelson was back and the Magic did not get as far. So Howard…

  12. Dwight Howard jumps to Dan Fegan as agent

    Jun 28, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    Two months back, Dwight Howard left Aaron Goodwin as his agent, with rumors swirling a family member would take over, but now he has landed with Dan Fegan. Which makes it a pretty good summer for Fegan, who also has John Wall on his client list. Ken Berger of CBSSports had the story first, and…

  13. Magic trade for Gilbert Arenas a "definite possibility."

    Jun 28, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    The Orlando Magic are in a tough spot. One season removed from the NBA finals the ground is shifting beneath their feet — Chicago could be a power, Miami could return to power, maybe both… the road to the finals in the East is getting harder. Desperate times call for desperate measures — and nothing…

  14. Dwight Howard is at least hanging out with Hakeem Olajuwon

    Jun 12, 2010, 10:48 PM EDT

    Two weeks ago, Hakeem Olajuwon mentioned during the Eastern Conference Finals that he would be meeting with Dwight Howard over the summer. It would appear that wasn’t just publicity talk. Magic blog Orlando Pinstriped Post was the first to catch it. Howard started posting to Twitter about being in Houston, and then posted a photo…

  15. Oakley being Oakley: LeBron should not go to New York

    Jun 4, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    If you’re looking for some crazy, look no farther than Charles Oakley. The 15-year NBA veteran has been out of the league for six seasons, but he still has plenty of opinions about it. The kind of opinions usually heard from overnight sports talk radio callers. Oakley was on recently with Sid Rosenberg of WQAM…

  16. Dwight Howard thanks the fans

    Jun 2, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    Cool little video from Dwight Howard, thanking the Orlando fans for their support this season. Classy. Clearly unrehearsed, which makes it feel more authentic. He and the players were not happy — and should not have been happy — with their playoff exit to Boston. Still took the time to do this. Watch for yourself.

  17. Howard may miss world championships as well

    May 31, 2010, 7:38 PM EDT

    According to the Associated Press, Dwight Howard has joined LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in being undecided about whether or not he will play in the world championship games this summer. Unlike James and Wade, Howard will not have to make a free agency decision this summer, but he is thinking of skipping the games…

  18. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 6: Boston looking forward, Orlando looking back

    May 29, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    It only took a few minutes after Boston advanced to the NBA finals for the questions to turn to “can you win the title?” But Boston had already been talking about that. Orlando had been talking title, too, which makes this one hard to take.  

  19. Dwight Howard developing a jumper would be best offseason move for Magic

    May 29, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    The Orlando Magic are close. They went to the NBA finals last season, the Eastern Conference finals this season. You can see a championship from where they stand. But what is it going to take to get into the Promised Land? It’s about getting more out of what they have, not bringing in anything new.…

  20. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 6: Celtics defend their way to Finals, West had better beware

    May 29, 2010, 12:06 AM EDT

    Jameer Nelson came off the picks like he had done for the last two games, attacked into the paint like he had done for two games, tried to shoot like he had for two games. And there were long arms in the way. Not fouling, but altering shots. His kick-out passes led to contested Magic…

  21. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 6: Big men will be banging, but little men will decide this one

    May 28, 2010, 5:53 PM EDT

    Man is it going to be fun to watch what happens inside the paint tonight tonight. Both as a fan of basketball and MMA — because there is going to be some banging. Dwight Howard and Kendrick Perkins are going to go at it inside, technicals be damned. Big Baby is back from his injury…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Celtics Magic: Dwight Howard dares to push back, Boston fans incensed

    May 28, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    UPDATE 1:28 pm: Magic coach Stan Van Gundy agrees with us. Of course he does, he’s a smart man. These were his comments today at shootaround, as reported by the Orlando Sentinel. “You know, it’s so funny the way things go, because we went down 0-3 and a lot of you guys were calling us…

  23. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 5: Does one good game deserve another?

    May 27, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Here’s what we learned after the game last night: Stan Van Gundy hates Rasheed Wallace in a good way, the Magic get how hard Game 6 will be, and Big Baby is always a little bit loopy.  

  24. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 5: Magic find their form, pull within game of Celtics

    May 27, 2010, 12:08 AM EDT

    You can talk about Perkins’ suspension. You can talk about Rajon Rondo’s second consecutive sub-par game. You can talk about Garnett and Pierce both struggling from the field. But the biggest reason the Orlando Magic won game five of the Eastern Conference Finals is that they played like the team who won 59 games in the regular…

  25. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 5: Get ready to hear a lot about Kendrick Perkins and technicals

    May 26, 2010, 11:01 PM EDT

    These playoffs had way too little controversy. Luckily, Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals supplied us with all we’re going to be needing for a while. In the first quarter, Paul Pierce drove after a perimeter whistle was called. Gortat double fouled him and sent him to the ground. Kendrick Perkins reached down to…
