Dwight Howard

  1. Baseline to Baseline Weekend Edition: The hits just keep on coming

    Dec 13, 2010, 9:34 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What happened while you were falling backwards into the endzone…. Friday Bulls 88 Lakers 84: I’m just saying. At some point, maybe, if the Lakers are in a one-possession game with less than 40 seconds remaining, two-for-one or no, maybe the Lakers should work for a quality shot instead of giving Kobe Bryant the ball…

  2. Forbes: LeBron James most underpaid player in the NBA

    This summer, while LeBron James was going about his decision and Decision, there was an interesting question floating around: What would James be worth on an open market? The NBA, with its max salaries, limits what guys like LeBron or Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant might make in a truly free market. Their value goes…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Why do people keep leaving Ray Allen open?

    Dec 10, 2010, 2:46 AM EDT

    Ray_Allen_stares

    What you missed while Jim Morrison was getting pardoned for a 31 year old indecent exposure charge… Celtics102, Sixers101: Probably the most entertaining ending minute of a game this season. It started with what looked like a dagger three from Ray Allen (followed by the staredown) with 1:04 left that put the Celtics ahead. How…

  4. We’ve played 20 games, let’s give out some awards

    Dec 8, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    CPaul-layup

    There’s a lot of people around the league that say you don’t really know much until you’re about 20 games into an NBA season, then the patterns have established themselves. Well, we’re about 20 games in now, one quarter of the season gone. Patterns are established. So… Let’s give out some first-quarter awards to players…

  5. Dwight Howard likely for Monday night as Magic gets over flu

    Dec 6, 2010, 3:36 PM EDT

    howardface

    It looks like the Magic will be nearly back on their feet Monday night after a stomach virus left the team on its back — or more accurately, kneeling over a toilet — for the past week. Stan Van Gundy said that Dwight Howard was taking IV fluids Monday and the coach was “optomistic” he…

  6. Flu bug leaves Magic looking sick

    Dec 4, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Just like the invading aliens in H.G. Wells “War of the Worlds,” nothing has been able to stop the Orlando Magic — except a flu bug. Tonight, while the Magic are in Milwaukee taking on the Bucks, Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, JJ Redick and Mickael Pietrus will all be back in Orlando trying to recover…

  7. Dwight Howard can still block shots like nobody else

    Dec 2, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    Howard_tall

    The Orlando Magic have the best defense in the NBA. They are giving up just 97.4 points per 100 possessions so far. That shouldn’t be a surprise, they have been at or near the top of the league for years. It is why they are contenders (if the offense will help out just a little…

  8. Everything about Dwight Howard’s free throws is wrong

    Nov 29, 2010, 7:54 PM EDT

    Howard Free Throws

    Dwight Howard is a bad free throw shooter. We all know this. Howard is a career 59.6% free throw shooter, and this season Howard is only making 53.8% of his free throws. If you’ve watched any Magic games this season, you know that Dwight now takes a really, really long time to shoot his free…

  9. This season’s top rebounders on pace for all-time mark

    Nov 29, 2010, 5:10 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    The NBA has seen a lot of fantastic rebounders in its history, but never before has the the league seen so many prolific board men grace its courts at one time. Even during the all-or-nothing days, the Vanishing Point days, the Dirty Mary Crazy Larry days, the NBA typically boasted just one or a few…

  10. A kinder, gentler Stan Van Gundy

    Nov 29, 2010, 2:08 PM EDT

    Image (1) SVan_Gundy-thumb-250x166-11630.jpg for post 1965

    There are few coaches more entertaining to watch stalking the sidelines than Stan Van Gundy. His arms are flailing, his expressions betraying every emotion coursing through his mind. Or at least he used to be. Now we have the more understanding, love-filled, softer Van Gundy. Okay, maybe not, but he isn’t being as negative as…

  11. Report: Magic still looking to make blockbuster move

    Nov 29, 2010, 8:14 AM EDT

    Image (1) Magic_team-thumb-250x166-12232.jpg for post 2133

    The Orlando Magic are 12-4. There are only two teams in the entire NBA with a better record. But the Magic would still blow it all up for another superstar — a Carmelo Anthony or Chris Paul — according to Brian Schmitz in the Orlando Sentinel. Basically, you can ask for anyone not named Dwight…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Spurs are legit

    Nov 23, 2010, 3:12 AM EDT

    Duncan_Howard

    What you missed while freaking out that there are flying snakes… The Clippers with the upset of the Hornets is our Game of the Night… Spurs 106, Magic 97: The Spurs are legit. Not sure they can beat the Lakers in the playoffs, but if that’s the standard then no other team in the NBA…

  13. Fast Don’t Lie, the remix video

    It’s a holiday week, it’s not like you are actually getting anything done at the office today anyway. So in the vein of entertaining distractions, we bring you the Fast Don’t Lie video remix with Slim Chin and his lady pyramid. Which he got because he is fast, so I hear. Dwight Howard and D-Rose…

  14. Nobody understands Hedo Turkoglu’s trash talk

    Nov 19, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    Hedo Turkoglu is one of the NBA’ talkers — the guys who have a constant stream of trash talk going during a game. Except, nobody understands what Turkoglu is saying. Rashard Lewis talked about it with the Orlando Sentinel yesterday after the Magic blew Turkoglu’s Suns out of the building. “He was talking noise, talking…

  15. Dwight Howard still on the fence about extension

    Nov 14, 2010, 8:14 PM EDT

    howardface

    With all the movings and goings on in free agency, every team has had concerns about their star moving on. The Magic are trying to get ahead of that speeding train by locking up Dwight Howard to a longterm extension. In years past, the only question about stars re-signing was if the team was willing…

  16. Watch out, Dwight Howard has developed a jumper

    Nov 9, 2010, 9:48 AM EDT

    Howard_tall

    We saw it on display a little opening night against the Wizards. Monday night in tight game against the Atlanta Hawks Howard went to it in the clutch, a little Duncanesque bank shot from 12 feet (he missed that one, but has made plenty this season). Dwight Howard has developed a little midrange jumper. Something…

  17. Game of the night: Orlando reminds Atlanta of the gap between the Hawks and the elite

    Nov 9, 2010, 2:02 AM EDT

    Howard_Smith

    Last season, Orlando swept Atlanta right out of the playoffs. Then this summer, both teams essentially went with the status quo. So maybe we should not be surprised by Monday night’s outcome, a 93-89 Orlando victory. Except that the Hawks were off to a fast start, had a new coach, have been incorporating radical ideals…

  18. Dwight Howard will continue blocking shots out of bounds, thank you very much

    Nov 4, 2010, 6:08 PM EDT

    Image (1) dhoward_rebound-thumb-250x156-18908.jpg for post 6270

    At last year’s MIT Sloan Stats and Analytics conference, there was some controversy and discussion surrounding a paper about the value of Dwight Howard’s blocks. John Huizinga studied shot blocks based on their possible outcomes — the offensive team keeping possession of the ball, the block leading to a defensive rebound and a change of…

  19. LeBron is in for 2012 Olympics; Wade and Bosh unsure

    Nov 4, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 14 - Basketball

    Right now, Team USA for the 2012 Olympics in London looks like Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and… LeBron James. Those three alone could go 3 on 5 and get out of group play. LeBron is in, he told Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. The other two/thirds of the Miami triad are not deciding yet.…

  20. Dwight Howard throws his hat in for the 2012 Olympics, too

    Nov 4, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 6 - Basketball

    I guess we’re doing this now. It’s not like we are 19 months and basically two full NBA seasons away from the USA Basketball camps where the team for the London Olympics will be chosen. We’re asking now who wants to go. Count Dwight Howard in. Asked by the Orlando Sentinel if he was going…

  21. Dwyane Wade as Justin Timberlake and other NBA Halloween stories

    Wade_Timberlake

    Oh social media, how you bring us photos we would never have otherwise seen. We love you for that. For example, there is Dwyane Wade going whiteface Justin Timberlake to his Halloween bash in Miami. If that costume comes with Jessica Beal, then it is brilliant and not at all creepy. We also can check…

  22. John Wall, welcome to the NBA

    Oct 29, 2010, 2:12 PM EDT

    Howard_Wall

    The first time John Wall came around a high pick in the NBA — just seconds into the opening game against Orlando Thursday — he had plenty of room. Jameer Nelson had gone under the pick. Way under. We’re going to dare you to take that uncontested jumper under. So Wall did — and he…

  23. Dwight Howard goes Willie Mays Hayes, does in-game pushups after miss

    Oct 29, 2010, 11:34 AM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINAL-LAKERS-MAGIC

    Dwight Howard and free throws do not have a good relationship. He gets fouled a lot, what with his heavy reliance on power moves in the post, but shot 59.4 percent from the charity stripe last season. Which is right about his career average. He went 9 for 19 from the line in the Magic…

  24. Game(s) of the night: Where the Jazz don’t look too good, but Orlando does

    Oct 29, 2010, 3:18 AM EDT

    DWilliams_dunk

    The first TNT Thursday night of the year, and thank goodness Chuck, Kenny, EJ and C-Webb were in rare form so something tonight was entertaining. Phoenix 110, Jazz 94: Deron Williams said after the game that the new-look Jazz just don’t know the offense. It looked it. The flex offense and motion that are Jerry…

  25. Dwight Howard, Slim Chin and a cheetah

    Oct 28, 2010, 12:58 PM EDT

    You’re going to see this one a lot tonight — the new Dwight Howard/Slim Chin Adidas commercial. Like you haven’t seen enough of them the last few nights, but we thought we’d give you a preview. You can thank us later.
