With the Los Angeles Lakers taking an early vacation after getting swept by the Spurs, the biggest question mark surrounds center Dwight Howard. Either he resigns with the Lakers or [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
How would DC fans feel about Dwight Howard in a Wizards jersey? I had a crazy thought this morning. I must have been a dream or something. And more than likely, it would only be a dream scenario. Anyone think the Wizards should pursue a sign and trade for Dwight Howard? It’s no secret that Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard aren’t the best of buds. I’m not sure what kind of...
Over the course of last week’s exit interviews, many of Dwight Howard’s teammates plus general manager Mitch Kupchak and coach Mike D’Antoni weighed in on the big man’s season, adding their thoughts on the impending free agent’s future.

Personally, the best that I’ve ever done for a girlfriend on their birthday is taking them to a nice Italian restaurant but Lakers star Kobe Bryant brought an Italian chef to cook his wife Vanessa, a special birthday dinner.
Vanessa turned 31 over the weekend and Kobe surprised her with a special birthday dinner that can be seen in the below image via his Twitter account:
This is very weird situation with Kobe and his mom. His mom seems to be upset that Vanessa’s mom got a bigger house that she has, so her way of getting payback, is stealing Kobe’s stuff and auctioning them off.
I don’t know the inner workings of the Bryant family, but regardless of what is going on behind the scenes, that seems a bit petty on her part.
Kobe is suing his mom...
Guys--correct me if I am wrong, but our wives/girlfriends like to claim that it is not the price tag on the gift that counts, but the thought right? As long as it is something that is from the heart and really shows that we care they are cool with it (supposedly).

Are Los Angeles Lakers Fans Spoiled?

Orlando has the best chance of landing the 2013 top pick after finishing with the worst record in the NBA this season. Ironically, the Magic did not have a top ten pick in their roster, which might be one reason that they are in the lottery. The last time they had the top overall pick, they selected Dwight Howard. The Magic have a 25% chance of landing the top pick in the June 27th lottery.
Never has a Los Angeles meltdown been met with more high-fives in Dallas. Well, the sweep of the defending champion Lakers in two years back was pretty darn close.
But what's transpired for LaLa Land's two basketball franchises over the past couple of weeks has Mavericks fans absolutely giddy with hope.
Same goes for the front office, as a snowball's chance suddenly...
For all of the bad publicity that Dwight Howard has been getting headed into free agency, Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul has quietly been in the exact same position. Eerily getting ejected in his last game just like Dwight to end his season, Paul and the Clippers now face questions about his future. [...]
