  2. Gilbert Arenas, comedian Joe Mande in Twitter fight

    Aug 29, 2011, 4:33 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Earlier today, comedian Joe Mande made a Tumblr post (which was also posted on The Basketball Jones) that pogether a compilation of all of the pictures Magic guard Gilbert Arenas has used as his Twitter profile picture, (warning: the pictures contain adult sentiments and content and are likely NSFW) and called Arenas a “lunatic.” Arenas…

    Aug 22, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    The mayor of Orlando is working hard to keep Dwight Howard in Orlando (remember he can and likely will opt out of his current deal next summer), taking part in online efforts to woo Howard. And he thinks he’s got some real help coming in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Here is what mayor Buddy…

  4. Orlando, Dwight Howard wants you to know he loves you

    Aug 11, 2011, 3:42 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    We passed along the tweets from Dwight Howard last week that he was frustrated with Orlando fans, that he wants them to be louder during the regular season. It wasn’t a fair criticism. Orlando just build a brand new stadium for the Magic and the fans have sold out 100 plus games. Knocking them came…

  5. Video: Dwight Howard playing point, coast-to-coast dunk

    Aug 11, 2011, 1:14 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard wants more freedom for his game, like maybe playing a little point guard. That’s what he was doing at a pro-am game recently, and we bring you video of Howard taking the inbound pass and going coast-to-coast for the dunk. Stan Van Gundy will let Howard play some point as soon as he…

    Aug 11, 2011, 11:20 AM EST

    NBA CHAMPIONSHIPS

    Patrick Ewing — currently a Magic assistant coach — wants a head coaching job. He’s had a few interviews (most recently with the Pistons) but has yet to win the gig. But is dream job? That is with the New York Knicks, he said on the Mike Lupica show on ESPN New York. “I hope…

  7. Marcin Gortat to skip EuroBasket due to lack of insurance

    Aug 11, 2011, 8:31 AM EST

    Marcin Gortat, VInce Carter

    Marcin Gortat has three years, $21.7 million left on his current NBA deal. While in NBA terms that seems a pretty good deal for the Suns, it’s also enough money to set Gortat and his family up for life. Gortat and the Polish basketball federation have not been able to find affordable insurance for that…

  8. Report: Earl Clark signs to play in China next season

    Aug 9, 2011, 8:41 PM EST

    Earl Clark

    Earl Clark, the fan-favorite backup center that bounced from Phoenix to Orlando last season, is bouncing all the way to China for next season. And not in the Dwyane Wade “I’m open to it” way — Clark is going. Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld tweeted the news. Earl Clark has signed a one-year deal with a…

  9. Howard would like Orlando fans to cheer like it’s 2009

    Aug 8, 2011, 3:56 PM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Come on Orlando Magic ticket holders — when they start pumping in the “every-body-clap-your-hands” noise at the Amway Center, Dwight Howard wants you feel it. Really feel it. On twitter yesterday a Magic fan made a complaint to Howard that fans in 29 other arenas make — the fans close to floor are just there…

  10. Stan Van Gundy has handles (and we don’t mean love)

    Aug 3, 2011, 3:02 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    Since the Magic’s season ended at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks, we’ve said Orlando has to find another guy who can handle the rock and create some open looks for teammates. Jameer Nelson can do that, and after that… Gilbert Arenas? See what we mean. Looks like we may have found the guy —…

  11. Olajuwon says Dwight Howard needs more freedom

    Aug 2, 2011, 5:16 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Free Dwight Howard! That is essentially what Hakeem Olajuwon seems to be saying. Last week, Dwight Howard was working out with the legendary big man, trying to “just shoot” and expand his offensive game. When asked this week what Olajuwon said, it was less about the broad skill set Howard has developed — he has…

  12. Dwight Howard: Players can find themselves during lockout

    Aug 2, 2011, 4:14 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    We’re desperately looking for bright sides to the NBA lockout, because after today it feels like it’s going to be a long one. Dwight Howard has one — the players can use this time to really find themselves. Find themselves in the sense of who they really are as a person — that stuff you…

  13. Dwight Howard working out with Hakeem Olajuwon again

    Jul 28, 2011, 12:42 PM EST

    Dwight Howard dunks on Jrue Holiday

    Dwight Howard’s offensive repertoire has expanded greatly over the past few years — the knock on him as a power only player is gone. He has developed a Duncanesque midrange bank shot opponents have to respect — the season the Magic went to the finals in 2009 he shot 28 percent from 10 to 15…

  14. Dwight Howard goes to Comic-Con (and talks free agency)

    Jul 26, 2011, 2:53 PM EST

    Disney XD'S "Kick Buttowski Suburban Daredevil" - Comic-Con 2011

    Dwight Howard stands out at Comic-Con. Which is not that easy to do. The entire city of San Diego seems to be dressed as a stormtrooper or an Amime character for the annual convention of all-things comic and sci-fi. But a 6’11” man who is the best center walking the planet gets noticed anywhere he…

  15. Expect the Magic to keep launching three pointers

    Jul 26, 2011, 9:53 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    No team attempted more three pointers than the Orlando Magic last season. Not the run and gun Knicks (22 fewer) and the Suns were third in attempts and nowhere close (246 fewer). That was true the season before and the Magic have been in the top two of the league every season since 2007-08. And…

  16. Howard doesn’t think the Magic get enough love from media

    Jul 20, 2011, 11:09 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Dwight Howard, you do not get to have it both ways. The center was in Paris recently, part of a promotional tour by adidas, and said the Magic do not get enough love from the American media. It was part of an interview with the French magazine Reverse, transcribed by web site TalkBasket. “I really…

  17. Howard says there is a “huge possibility” he plays overseas

    Jul 18, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    There is a lot of risk in Dwight Howard playing overseas during the lockout — he has two years, $37.5 million on his existing deal that can be wiped out if he gets injured. What’s more, he has said he is going to opt out of that last year, meaning he would be a free…

  18. Not to put too fine a point on it, but this lockout could really doom the Magic

    Jul 16, 2011, 10:36 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The owners aren’t really cutting off their noses to spite their faces. It’s more of a self-provided lobotomy just to show the brain who’s boss. There are quite a few owners who have designated plans on a championship. And failing that, several of them are in pivotal moments for their franchise. A few wrong moves…

  19. Richardson says winning matters most, of course it does

    Jul 14, 2011, 1:18 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Orlando’s Jason Richardson is officially a free agent, you can tell because he has now said what every free agent is compelled by some law of nature to say. It’s not about the money, it’s about winning. It’s never about the money. Why would you even think that? Anyway, here is the quote, via the…

  20. Dwight Howard would choose China over Europe?

    Jul 13, 2011, 5:05 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    This is a hypothetical exercise, Dwight Howard is not going to play overseas. He may say he is open to it but there is only in infinitesimal chance Dwight Howard would actually lace up the Adidas. The fact is he is on the verge of a huge new contract — the max under whatever the…

  21. Boston’s long-shot hope at landing Dwight Howard

    Jul 12, 2011, 10:32 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Nothing passes the time during the lockout like Dwight Howard speculation. Well, maybe speculation about players going to Europe next season, but Howard is a close second. Even if he keeps saying he wants to stay and the Magic plan on keeping him. Which brings us to the Boston Celtics. As things stand now they…

  22. Nets really want to land Dwight Howard. Shocking, I know.

    Jul 3, 2011, 10:00 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Deron Williams has chosen his new agent, Jeff Schwartz, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. An agent with a lot of NBA pull and a roster of 20 clients he represents (including Paul Pierce, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and Lamar Odom). Williams can opt out of his contract next summer and is expected to do…

  23. Dwight Howard pokes fun at former teammate Carter

    Jun 29, 2011, 6:19 PM EST

    Vince Carter Planking

    If you’re not familiar with “planking,” it refers to lying face-down on something and having somebody take a picture of you while doing it. It has become a popular meme lately, even among NBA players such as Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard. Today, Howard used the “planking” meme to take a jab at former teammate…

  24. Portland, Orlando talking swap of point guards Miller, Nelson

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:31 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    In what would be an interesting swap of styles and systems, the Orlando Magic and Portland Trail Blazers are talking about swapping point guards. That according to Jonathan Givony at DraftExpress, on twitter. Hearing Portland and Orlando are talking about swapping Andre Miller and Jameer Nelson, with the #21 pick going to Orlando. Orlando has…

  25. Report: Josh Smith to Orlando Magic trade rumors “legit”

    Jun 22, 2011, 11:59 AM EST

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is being shopped around, and while Boston may not be interested Orlando is. That according to Ken Berger at CBS Sports. A source also said discussions between Atlanta and Orlando with Josh Smith going to the Magic are “totally legit.” Executives say the Hawks have expressed an eagerness to move Smith and would…
