Dwight Howard

  1. Media members need not be protected, accountability in award voting is a must

    Apr 30, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    As in most things related to the NBA, the ultimate goal should be transparency. Transparency in the officiating, especially in a post-Donaghy era. Transparency from the league office in how they deal with specific rulings, punishments, and edicts. Transparency from coaches and general managers, who optimally wouldn’t pretend to be vying for a playoff spot…

  2. Dwight Howard, Stan Van Gundy to talk fouls again

    Apr 29, 2010, 10:31 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard lost his head in the Charlotte series. Sure, there were some borderline calls that went against him, but he didn’t deal with it well. He kept picking up silly fouls, not just accepting some of the banging but retaliating. Then he sat. Then his teammates nicknamed him Foul on You. Watch the video…

  3. Dwight Howard gets $35,000 fine for calling out referees

    Apr 28, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    We told you this was coming. It was obvious. It was just a matter of when. Today. The league announced a $35,000 fine for Dwight Howard for criticizing the referees on his blog. What did he write that was (apparently) worth $35,000? “Ya’ll know that that series against Charlotte drove me crazy. I mean, it…

  4. Kobe Bryant still king of NBA Jersey sales, LeBron is queen, Celtics fans will buy anything.

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant. Love him or hate him, you buy his gear. Admit it. The Lakers sudden defensive stopper topped the sales chart at NBA.com and the NBA Store in Manhattan for the second straight year, according to a league announcement Wednesday. LeBron James was second, because really the NBA is all about LeBron and Kobe…

  5. Dwight Howard enjoys paying fines, complains about refs

    Apr 27, 2010, 9:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard apparently has too much money, what with all those endorsements and all. Time to make a donation. So, he criticized the referees Tuesday on his blog. The quotes from the Orlando Sentinel. “Ya’ll know that that series against Charlotte drove me crazy. I mean, it was almost comical at times how I was…

  6. Dwight Howard may not play, pick up fouls in World Championships

    Apr 27, 2010, 1:31 PM EDT

    One would think Dwight Howard would be itching to play some international ball right about now — they let the game get physical there, far more pushing and grabbing. None of those silly fouls he keeps picking up in the playoffs. No more cardboard walls around Superman. But apparently not. Howard may be the latest…

  7. Dwight Howard's new nickname: "foul on you"

    Apr 26, 2010, 1:29 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard has really stepped up his game in the playoffs. Well, one part of his game. He tends to foul a lot during the regular season (3.5 per game), but during the playoffs he has been on fire. So much so that his teammates have nicknamed him “foul on you” Howard told the Associated…

  8. Dwight Howard dumps long-time agent

    Apr 25, 2010, 9:34 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard has pulled a LeBron James. He has dumped Aaron Goodwin as his agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo. Goodwin was Howard’s agent when he came out of high school and was the top pick overall by the Magic. Howard’s next move is unclear, although sources say he planned to lean more toward…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Nelson carries Magic to 3-0 series lead

    Apr 24, 2010, 7:51 PM EDT

    The Charlotte Bobcats did everything right on Saturday afternoon. They frustrated Dwight Howard on both ends of the floor, baiting him into silly fouls and rendering him ineffective on the offensive end for most of the time he was in. They held the Magic to 9-30 shooting from beyond the arc. They turned defense into…

  10. Barnes and Van Gundy fined fined because Dwight Howard is a foul mangnet

    Apr 22, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    Two games into the playoffs and Dwight Howard has racked up 10 fouls, five each game. Which has meant some extra time on the bench and some caution as he tried not to get ejected from games. Howard likes the money he makes, so he hasn’t said a word. But his coach and teammates have…

  11. NBA Playoffs: Gerald Wallace can defend, too

    Apr 22, 2010, 9:32 AM EDT

    Third in the Defensive Player of the Year voting, well back of Dwight Howard> Ha. Gerald Wallace will show him a thing or two. Howard is not the only guy who can block a shot.

  12. Stan Van Gundy doesn't understand how the media votes (neither to we)

    Apr 21, 2010, 3:57 PM EDT

    When the Defensive Player of the Year voting was released yesterday, the NBA’s twitter pundits — of which we are a proud member — started picking apart the ballots. Like questioning the sanity of the person who voted for David Lee as the third best defensive player in the league, and wondering if that person…

  13. Dwight Howard to be named Defensive Player of the Year

    Apr 20, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:30 pm: It’s official. And here are your top 5 vote getters: Dwight Howard Orlando 110 first, total 576 Josh Smith Atlanta 3 first, total 136 Gerald Wallace Charlotte 1 first, total 113 LeBron James Cleveland 4 first, total 61 Rajon Rondo Boston 1 first, total 55 12:39 pm: The only interesting part of…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Charlotte will keep attacking the rim, Dwight Howard will keep blocking them

    Apr 20, 2010, 9:57 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard was swatting shots in game one  like King Kong on top of the Empire State building swatting planes. In game one he had nine blocks, eight of those in the first half. He owned the paint. But Charlotte’s Gerald Wallace said that didn’t intimidate them — the Bobcats are still going to attack…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Bobcats lost game one, but won matchup against Dwight Howard

    Apr 19, 2010, 12:33 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard had a rough game against the Charlotte Bobcats to kick-start Orlando’s playoff run, even if his defense met his own unusually high standards. Howard finished with just five points and seven rebounds to go along with his nine blocks, in a performance that seems easily attributable to the Bobcats’ stellar team defense. Charlotte…

  16. Video evidence of why the Bobcats had trouble scoring inside

    Apr 19, 2010, 10:33 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard had eight blocks in the first half yesterday, sending an early message to the Bobcats about who owns the painted area. The Bobcats bigs lived with their midrange game the rest of the day (which worked fairly well, but will not win you games or a series). Here is a little video evidence…

  17. In a shocking development, Stan Van Gundy says something positive about the Magic

    Apr 15, 2010, 12:33 PM EDT

    NBA players and coaches balance each other out incredibly well: most players have found success because of their confidence in themselves and their team, and most coaches have found success because of their bottomless desire to nitpick and fine-tune. It’s the yin and yang that makes professional sports go. Stan Van Gundy may be a…

  18. Jefferson not shy in his praise of Howard

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:37 PM EDT

    In the NBA (and all professional sports for that matter), players have a fine line to walk when discussing their opponents. Don’t give them enough credit, and they feel wronged and the comments become bulletin board material. Give them too much credit, and there’s a perceived psychological shift and the comments become bulletin board material.…

  19. Howard moves one step closer to suspension

    Mar 19, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Last night, Dwight Howard picked up a technical foul with the Magic nursing a two-point lead in overtime against the Heat. Not good. Orlando lived, because the Magic are a better team with better chemistry and more depth. That one point the Heat gained off of the technical free throw bore only fleeting significance, as…

  20. Jason Kidd, Dwight Howard adjusting the record books

    Mar 1, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

    Two players destined for the Hall of Fame did their part to etch their names into history a bit early this weekend. Jason Kidd, who is already 2nd in NBA history in career assists, moved past Maurice Cheeks for sole ownership of the 4th spot on the NBA’s all-time steals list. John Stockton currently sits…

  21. Shaq to have surgery, likely out until playoffs

    Mar 1, 2010, 8:28 AM EDT

    UPDATE 10:57 am: According to Windhorst’s oracle-like twitter account, Shaq is out of surgery, and everything is fine. Except the part where he is out for eight weeks, but we knew that was coming. 3/1 8:28 am: Shaq had this to say on his twitter account Monday morning: going into surgery today on my thumb,…

  22. Praise, and an appraisal, for Dwight Howard

    Feb 26, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    Let me start by saying that despite what Mike Bianchi’s headlines would have you believe, Dwight Howard is not as great, as valuable, or as dominant as LeBron James. No one is. But that doesn’t mean that Dwight isn’t great, valuable, or dominant in his own right. Dwight Howard is, without a doubt, the most…

  23. Orlando wins statement game against Cleveland

    Feb 21, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    The Magic’s stretch four landed a huge shot after Cleveland’s stretch four fouled out, and that was pretty much the ballgame. After Antawn Jamison fouled out preventing a Dwight Howard gimme dunk late in the game, Rashard Lewis nailed a corner three to put the Magic up six late and hold on for a 101-95…

  24. Team USA roster a 'Who's Who' of the next decade

    Feb 10, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    2008’s “Redeem Team” took Beijing by storm, and if the newly announced Team USA roster is any indication, 2010-2012 should be no different. The 2008 Olympics in Beijing were terrific for Team USA in terms of publicity and camaraderie, but the 2010 FIBA World Championships provide just as much of a challenge, if not the…

  25. LeBron, Dwight remake a classic commercial

    Feb 8, 2010, 11:33 AM EDT

    Creating the perfect television commercial is, at best, an imperfect science. At worst? It’s a ‘throw it to the wall and see what sticks’ proposition, with little indication of what the adoring public will cling on to. Is the tagline catchy enough? The punchline funny enough? Are the stars likable enough? Oh, and is the…
