This one is a few days old, but its classic none the less. Apparently Chris Paul did something that Francisco Garcia did not like Monday night (maybe the fact that Paul was showing up any Rocket that tried to defend him) so he gave him the look. You know the one. The kind of look that people think of whenever they say "if looks could kill."
Because if looks could kill, this one would have.

It's no secret Dwight Howard isn't the most loved guy in Los Angeles. When the Rockets came to town to play the Clippers this week, fans made it clear that he wasn't welcome at Staples Center -- he was booed every time he touched the ball.
To top off being blown out by the Clippers, TMZ reported that Howard was hit in the head with a basketball by a fan as he walked...
Michael Jordan called it one of the hardest shots in basketball.
Although fifteen feet away from the hoop, the free throw – while it looks routine to the observing eye – is indeed the one shot in basketball that is unlike any other. You aren’t guarded, and no fading away at a tough angle. It’s a stand still shot, and it seems easy. However, it is a shot that requires extreme...
Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard told UFC president Dana White and teammate Chandler Parsons before UFC 166 that he’d be willing to step into the cage for $10 million. From FOX Sports: “If I get knocked out, I get knocked out,” said Howard, who signed a four-year, $88 million deal with the Rockets in July. “I’ll get back up one day.” Never one to pass up a huge payday...
Dwight Howard has been through this before.
Last season, his one and only in Los Angeles, he faced the hype and emotion of facing the team that employed him for the first eight years of his career. This time, when Howard suits up for the Rockets against the Lakers on Thursday night in his new home, there is considerable hype but not much emotion associated with Howard's latest...
It wouldn’t be a week here on That NBA Lottery Pick without a notable video moment from Houston Rockets guard James Harden and during tonight’s Rockets/Lakers affair, James had a nice slam dunk.
It happened in the first quarter of play and watch as James rises for the two-handed slam dunk:

James Harden is dealing with a bruised left foot.
The Houston Rockets' star is day-to-day.
Harden has scored 68 points in 84 minutes over the Rockets' past two games.
Earlier this month Houston Rockets big man Dwight Howard attended a UFC event in Houston and told UFC president Dana White that for the right price he would fight in the cage.
Howard’s price is $10 million.
“I would get up there and fight. If I get knocked out, I get knocked out,” Howard said. “I’ll get back up one day.”
White immediately interjected. “I want to do...
Dwight Howard played against his former team…again. His team, Houston Rockets almost won the game, but the Los Angeles Lakers were not giving up and Steve Blake made a 3-point shot with 1.3 second to go to give his team a valuable 1-point lead. Here is the video of Blake’s big shot which brought a ...The post VIDEO: Steve Blake’s Game-Winner Against Houston appeared first on The League News.
James Harden and Dwight Howard have given the Houston Rockets the prolific combo they were hoping for.
The Los Angeles Lakers envisioned a similar situation after acquiring Howard before last season, though things didn't work out that way.
Howard will face the Lakers for the first time since leaving via free agency in July when the high-scoring Rockets look to extend their...
Last season, Dwight Howard donned the Lakers’ purple and gold for the first time and became the heir apparent to a franchise that Kobe Bryant reigned over for more than a decade. As Bryant slowly—very slowly—approached the twilight of his career, the franchise looked for one last run at a title as the franchise began its ...The post Is Dwight Howard a “Coward” for Leaving...
Wow. Wow. Wow.
What a crazy, fitting end to the game.
The Lakers extended their lead to 19 against Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets, but the Rockets ended up clawing back into the game and taking the lead.
However, Hack-A-Howard and a little bit of magic from Steve Blake made the Lakers’ first road win of the year and absolutely amazing one.
Blake Mamba, baby.

Clippers defense is pretty bad

There was Chris Paul in all his splendid glory dishing out nine first-quarter assists on his way to 17. There was Blake Griffin flying to the basket at ease and Los Angeles' offense perfectly spacing the floor...
