LOS ANGELES Its only an opinion, but its Kobe Bryants, so were listening.
In a radio interview on ESPNLA 710 Wednesday afternoon, Bryant spoke at length about the free agent sweepstakes that are raging in Los Angeles this summer. Asked about his teammate, Dwight Howard, and the Clippers Chris Paul, Bryant didnt mince words: "I think at the end of the day, everybody stays," he said.
Bryant seemed optimistic about the Lakers chances next season if they were to bring Howard back, and he said that the team needs more length on the perimeter above all else. He didnt offer much new information on his own recovery timetable from his April Achilles tear hes shooting for November or December, he said but he added that hes more mobile than ever and no longer feels stiffness or soreness when he wakes up in the morning.
"I think its going to be fine," Bryant said. "I think its going to be more than fine."
Any talk of next season with the Lakers, though, invo...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Dwight Howard sweepstakes reached the apex of their annoyingness late last week.
This may prove untrue in a week, when intrepid journalists start rummaging through Dwight Howard's trash for clues as to his impending free-agency decision, but I'm going to go ahead and say it anyway. It might be a quiet kind of annoying, a subtle kind, but it's the worst.
We aren’t exactly sure how many baby mamas Dwight Howard has (at least 5 we know), but he is expecting another one.
Congratulations to Dwight & Christine on the birth of their baby boy! Bray has a baby brother!
WHAT BRYANT WANTS...
Saying, "Those guys are hard to find, they don’t grow on trees," Lakers star Kobe Bryant would like to see the team figure out a way to keep Dwight Howard.
I am always interested to see whether NBA players continue watching the playoffs even after their team has been eliminated from contention. You always find some that are adamant about not watching the Finals at all and according to TMZ you can include one Dwight Howard in that category.
Dwight was leaving a restaurant last night and when asked by TMZ if he was watching the game inside...
Metta World Peace joined Sportsradio 610 in Houston Monday where he was asked a question about Dwight Howard’s impending free agency. The Lakers forward responded in typical Metta World Peace fashion, claiming that Howard is not going anywhere because he has possession of his testicles.
According to Howard Chen, CSN Houston (h/t Pro Basketball Talk):
When asked about the Lakers...
Metta World Peace has always been known to drop some rather um.. odd quotes when asked questions. So perhaps this newest set of quotes shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Regardless, I’m more than positive you’ll be shaking your head by the end of the interview. Word Peace was on SportsRadio 610 in Houston, and [...]
So, the Clippers have narrowed their sights down to just Doc Rivers, but they’re not offering the Celtics anything to free the coach from his contract.
Sound fishy? Not if the Clippers aren’t really trying to get Rivers after all.
Baxter Holmes of The Boston Globe reports that the activity surrounding a deal for Rivers is mostly a ruse meant to appease point guard Chris Paul...
Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard may have had a contentious relationship during the regular season, but make no mistake about it: Kobe understands the importance of Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers. During an interview with 710/ESPN Radio LA on Wednesday, Bryant was asked if he has talked to Howard about free agency. Bryant said [...]
Scott Souza reported he was halfway to Waltham and got the above message. Yes, folks, it means that after announcing the press conference at 9:30 this morning and getting both CSNNE and WEEI scrambling to air it, they are now cancelling it, approximately an hour later. Could this whole thing get any worse? Please don't answer that because I have a feeling that it's about...
LA Times reporter Brad Turner was the first to report that the talks are off because the Clippers will not include two 1st round draft picks.
The Clippers claim that owner Donald Sterling will meet with Bryon Scott and Brian Shaw later this week.
Hold your ground, Danny.
Curious how Chris Paul feels about this?
