World Peace wants Lakers to break Bulls' record for wins in a season

NBA training camps have not opened yet, but Lakers forward Metta World Peace has already established a rather outlandish goal for his team.

The hard lesson Dwight Howard still may not have learned

If there was one obvious lesson to be learned by outside observers of the Dwight Howard mess, it is that he has a deep desire to be loved by everyone. It is why he made the ridiculous move to opt-in to a season in Orlando he really had no intention of playing as a member of the Magic. From there, everything played out like it did (no need for me to rehash that mess) and it culminated...
