Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard said on Wednesday that things will be different now, adding that he plans to take more responsibility for the team's success, according to an ESPNLosAngeles.com report. "I think this will be the start of a new season for us tonight," Howard said Wednesday morning, according to the report. "Hopefully our effort and energy...
EL SEGUNDO Lakers center Dwight Howard, who aggravated his right shoulder injury in last nights game at Memphis, was examined today in Los Angeles by shoulder specialist Dr. James Tibone.
Tibone confirmed that there is no further damage, and that Howard has been cleared to continue to play.
KEEP IT POSITIVE
Dwight Howard said that he was sick of negativity surrounding the Lakers during their disappointing losing season. They won their first game after he made his comments.
Dwight Howard certainly made good on his desire to “dominate.” (Yes, that is more sarcasm in what has been just a brutal season for the Lakers thus far.)
Howard, fresh out of a Lakers team meeting, talked with reporters at Los Angeles’ shootaround on Wednesday, and he sounded like a man who was ready to make strides in the right direction. The Lakers’ controversial big man...

Maybe Dwight is sleep, so the messages aren’t serving their intended purpose? The Lakers are a mess and it is getting close to the time to raise the white flag.
Can’t just blame one person, but it appears they maybe jumped the gun on firing Mike Brown unless they knew for sure they were going to get Phil Jackson.
Once that didn’t happen their season has really spiraled out...
Darrell Arthur scored 20 points and Mike Conley added 19 as the Memphis Grizzlies beat Los Angeles 106-93 Wednesday night, handing the Lakers' their fourth straight loss and 10th in 12 games.
Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni had talked before the game about how having an All-Star team with players not having learned their pecking order. Yet Los Angeles lost its seventh consecutive...
Big guys and free throws seems to be a match made in hell, and not just in the NBA. The number 5 ranked Louisville Cardinals lost to the un-ranked Villanova last night 73-64. The biggest disparity between the Cardinals winning and losing was their free throw percentage. They shot 50% from the line going 12 of 24, while the Villanova shot 75% from the line. Rick Pitino blamed their...
Another game. Another loss. Who is to blame for such woes?
The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Chicago Bulls 95-83 on Monday night, continuing the free-fall for the “Purple and Gold.” At 17-24, they currently sit at 12th in the West, four games behind the Houston Rockets for the eighth seed. Not exactly what people expected out of the new-look Lakers.
Who is to blame for the...
Kobe: "Dwight, you suck."- my imagined exchange the two shared at this moment
The Los Angeles Lakers are 17-25 so far this season. That record is good enough (bad enough?) for 12th (!) in the Western Conference, just ahead of the Sacramento Kings and behind the Dallas Mavericks.
Yep, the same Lakers that most people picked to either win the...
