Jim RacaltoTo say things aren’t going great for the supposed-to-be-stud Los Angeles Lakers is an understatement. Recently, Los Angeles Kings mascot, Bailey, made an appearance at the Lakers facility and went one on one with Dwight Howard in a variety of shooting contests where he apparently dismantled D12.
First it is reported that Bailey sunk Howard shooting free throws, and then proceeded to wax him from several other areas on the court. While I am not all that surprised that a guy in a bear/tiger/lion suit can shoot threes better than Howard, it is still funny to watch.
When asked, Howard said he let Bailey win. Likely story, Dwight. Below is a video of the two shooting free throws courtesy of our friend Robert Littal of Black Sports Online:

New team, same old Dwight Howard. After starting the 2012 NBA season at 1-4, the Los Angeles Lakers have bounced back nicely as they currently stand with a record of 7-7 in the Western Conference.
During a recent team flight, Howard somehow gained control of the in-board intercom and decided to have some at the expense of some of his teammates.
The major target of his rant was Kobe...

Former Basketball Wives star Royce Reed has asked a judge to make Dwight Howard, foot her legal bills so she can be on an equal playing ground in the court room. Howard’s baby mama needs financial help handling her mounting custody battle bills and she feels Dwight should be the one to cough up some dough. She filed papers in Florida recently...
Dwight Howard was at Serra High School on Wednesday to film a series of commercials for Mission Athletecare and their various on court products, such as Court Grip, which reduces on court slippage. Howard joins Dwyane Wade, Brandon Jennings and Carmelo Anthony as other partners with the company.
This is kinda funny, but I just know Kobe despises Dwight Howard. It’s because he has the same demeanor on the court as he does on the team plane.
Paint your face, clown.

While Time Magazine will count down their picks for the most influential people of the year sometime in the near future, GQ Magazine has something far more interesting in the meantime: “The Least Influential People of 2012″. Topping the parody list is this year’s biggest loser, Mitt Romney, followed by celebrity trainwreck of the year, Amanda Bynes, Madonna with a failed...
GQ recently released a list titled “The Least Influential People of 2012″. One particular NBA player made that list. That player, you may ask? Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. GQ did include an important note that states,
Please note that these folks are ranked in no particular order, because all zeros are created equal.
With that said, Dwight Howard is listed...
In the style of our non-stop KIDS BEATING THE MIAMI HEAT AT BASKETBALL coverage comes this clip of Bailey, lion mascot for the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, out-shooting Dwight Howard, a guy who gets paid to win at basketball. This contest of skills was made possible by the NHL lockout, which has given the league’s mascots a lot of free time, and the Los Angeles Lakers, who are currently...
Lakers center Dwight Howard will make nearly $20 million playing basketball this season. The man inside the Los Angeles Kings mascot suit will probably make zero dollars dancing around at Kings games this year.
So when the two got together for a little contest during the Lakers’ Wednesday morning shoot-around, you would think that Howard should dominate. Right? Even if the...

Tonight, the Magic take on the Spurs who are very much the forerunners and the model of what the Magic are trying to do in the post-Dwight Howard reality. These two teams right now are on opposite ends of the spectrum as far as championship expectations. The Magic though showed Sunday that you have to play the games and anything can happen. Orlando will certainly feel like it can...
I know box scores don’t tell the whole story of a game but it can sure tell a lot. And there have been a couple crazy games already this week in the NBA.
On Monday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 114-69. In the middle of the 3rd quarter the score was 79-25. And then the Thunder coach pulled the starters. If this was last year when they were the worst...
Los Angeles Lakers center was challenged by Los Angeles Kings mascot "Bailey" to a free throw and three-point shooting contest.
Bailey won both challenges.
"Sometimes you have to lose to win," joked Howard afterwards.
Howard's free throw average this season is 47.8 percent while his three-point average is 0.00 percent as it should be.
