Dwight Howard

  1. Brandon Bass makes Dwight Howard’s job sound easy

    Oct 13, 2010, 7:07 PM EDT

    Brandon Bass

    On some teams, the distinction between ‘power forward’ and ‘center’ is a mere formality. After all, the more versatile the players that a coach has at his disposal, the more blurry the lines between the two positions often become. Not so for the Orlando Magic, if only because the defensive responsibilities that accompany each positional…

  2. Give Marcin Gortat the damn ball

    Oct 7, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    Marcin Gortat is not just a big body in there to bang and grab rebounds and not screw up while Dwight Howard gets a blow for the Magic. He wants you to know he can shoot — sure he only took one shot a game last season but he hit 53 percent of then. At…

  3. Dwight Howard music video: "Fast Don't Lie"

    Oct 6, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    This has been all over the NBA blogosphere (I can’t remember where I saw it first at this point or I’d link… sorry) but it is too dang funny not to watch a couple more times. Dwight Howard should wear a smoking jacket all the time.

  4. Dwight Howard seeks to expand his post game, learns from the best

    Oct 6, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    To the casual fan, Dwight Howard’s post game is a crime against humanity. A man with his physical gifts should be dropping 30 a night, they say. Dropping sky hooks on a whim, they say. Calling to mind the centers of old, they say. To hell with that, I say. Howard’s moves on the block…

  5. Notes from a night of watching preseason hoops

    Oct 6, 2010, 9:20 AM EDT

    Turns out more than just the Miami Heat played last night. There were eight games on the docket and while results don’t matter things like how players looked and took advantage of opportunities do. Here are a few notes from a night of flipping through League Pass: * There was a time just a few…

  6. Message received: Dwight Howard promises less complaining to referees

    Oct 4, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

    While NBA referees have been instructed to call touch fouls on the perimeter, the game inside the paint is as physical as ever. Strong centers who play through the contact get beat on in ways that would send smaller guards flying to the floor. The guards get those calls, the centers only sometimes. That frustrates…

  7. Daniel Orton to miss entire training camp rehabbing knee

    Sep 30, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    After his junior year of high school, Daniel Orton had major reconstructive knee surgery. He didn’t play his senior year. He was limited in his one year at Kentucky by the knee, but the Orlando Magic drafted him at the end of the first year on promise. The knee is still not right. Orton is…

  8. Dwight Howard's children's album about to hits stores. Whoomp There It Is.

    Sep 29, 2010, 11:44 AM EDT

    You know how you’ve always wanted to explain to your young son or daughter the joy of hearing “Whoomp There It Is” through the arena sound system during the timeout of an NBA game? No? Then what about “Let’s Get It Started?” “U Can’t Touch This?” Now Dwight Howard has come to your rescue. He…

  9. NBA Season Preview: Orlando Magic

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:08 PM EDT

    Last season: 59-23, the second seed in the East. In the playoffs they Magic swept past the Bobcats and Hawks before running into the buzz saw that was the Celtics and losing in the Eastern Conference Finals. Head Coach: Stan Van Gundy, one of the best going and probably funnier than his brother. Key Departures:…

  10. Orlando believe 12 is better than three when it comes to Miami Heat

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:07 PM EDT

    If you like messin’ with Sasquatch, then go to an Orlando Magic practice and start asking questions about the Miami Heat. Pretty much the same reaction. Orlando general manager Otis Smith led the “hey, maybe they should play a game before we anoint them” cries, as reported by FanHouse. “They’ve got three, and we’re solid…

  11. Five years in, we still don't have a lock on Andrew Bynum

    Sep 25, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    We need divisive figures in the NBA. There are so many players that simply are what they are. Lou Amundson, for example. Tim Duncan. Andrei Kirilenko. It’s those other players that make debates fun, and Andrew Bynum is certainly one of them. We’re entering our sixth season of Bynumite, and we still have little way…

  12. Kobe Bryant remains top selling NBA jersey in China

    Sep 23, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Kobe is big all over the globe. That includes China, where for the fourth year in a row he tops the league in jersey sales, according to the league. Rounding out the top five are LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnett, and Derrick Rose. The next five are Chris Paul, Paul Pierce, Deron Williams, Ray…

  13. Dwight Howard would rather have Kevin Durant than LeBron James on his team

    Sep 22, 2010, 7:11 PM EDT

    Magic center Dwight Howard recently sat down for an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Dan Patrick. During the course of it, Patrick asked Dwight Howard who he’d rather have as a teammate — Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder or LeBron James of the Miami Heat. After hesitating briefly, Howard went with Durant, who’s fresh…

  14. Dwight Howard claims "Basketball Wives" star owes him $500 million

    Sep 16, 2010, 11:13 AM EDT

    Man, I can’t wait for actual basketball games to begin… Dwight Howard has filed papers in court in Florida claiming that Royce Reed — the mother if his child — violated a legal gag order not allowing her to speak to the media about their relationship, according to TMZ (via Ben Maller). Reed was part…

  15. Who is on Team USA in 2012 in London? Well, probably that Durant guy…

    Sep 14, 2010, 6:03 PM EDT

    Predicting who will be the top players in the NBA two years from now is risky business — injuries, development of rookies and a host of other things make the future foggy. As such, predicting the USA Basketball team for the 2012 Olympics in London — watch them right here on NBC! (starting the plugs…

  16. Dwight Howard has become "7- foot-tall bottle of medicine" for woman fighting cancer

    Sep 8, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    Kay Kellogg has it a lot tougher than Dwight Howard. Kellogg doesn’t have Shaq and the Celtics or the Miami Heat to worry about. But she has cancer. Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma, and it is incurable. She is also an Orlando Magic season ticket holder whose one wish was to meet Dwight Howard. Recently that…

  17. Dwight Howard helping out youth in Haiti

    Sep 1, 2010, 1:43 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert is not the only NBA player who hasn’t forgotten about the devastation in Haiti. Dwight Howard announced that he will co-host the Concert for a Cause… Remembering Haiti scheduled for Sept. 15 at the House of Blues in Orlando (via the Orlando Sentinel). He also will be traveling to Haiti this month and…

  18. Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard will be "Amazing" on the big screen

    Aug 24, 2010, 7:25 PM EDT

    I’ll take “movies destined for midnight showing cult status” for 400, Alex… Following in the footsteps of Ray Allen (in a good movie, “He Got Game“) and Shaquille O’Neal (what to say about “Kazaam“…), Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard are going to star in a movie together. Currently titled “Amazing,” it will be directed by…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
