Dare I say these words… Is Dwight Howard… maturing?
Lately it seems like Dwight Howard is beginning to accept his new role as a leader in LA. With Kobe out for 6-9 months, in Kobe years thats like 3-6 months, Howard is getting an early taste of what this LA team has to offer and what is being expected of him. From insidesocal.com, Howard spoke to the press about stepping up to...
Kobe isn’t around to tell him to keep the clown act in Orlando, so Dwight is back to his happy-go-lucky self. Since, he doesn’t like to use the Superman moniker anymore after Shaq punked him, he is thinking about trying out a new name.
Dwight also suggested he could be the “Chocolate Mamba.” And sell a snack bar by that name.

Always the cut up, Lakers' Dwight Howard was back at it again before they face the Rockets on the team's final home regular season game.
Speaking to the media, Howard gave a rousing "300" movie-speech which including shout outs to Dr. Buss, injured Kobe Bryant, yelling for Pau Gasol to put his "big boy" pants on and of course, gave the infamous "...
The big news Wednesday night was that the Los Angeles Lakers earned the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference playoffs with a 99-95 overtime win against the Houston Rockets. But a story that largely went under the radar was that Lakers center Dwight Howard became the youngest player in NBA history to notch 9,000 rebounds
The 27-year-old grabbed his 9,000th rebound in the first quarter...
If this was an episode of “24″ (I know ironic), Dwight would be checking in to make sure Kobe was never released from hospital (I miss Jack Bauer).
I believe Dwight somewhat, when he says that Kobe has helped him this season, but I also believe, he is embracing the fact, that he can be the “MAN” while Kobe is injured.
Frankly, for the Lakers to prosper, even when Kobe comes...
Dwight Howard's first season with the Los Angeles Lakers has been filled with more twists, setbacks and disappointments than he ever imagined when he was traded last summer.
He's still hoping the Lakers can come up with a few more surprises for the playoffs.
Los Angeles reached the postseason as the Western Conference's seventh seed with an overtime victory over Houston...
Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard knows that all of the pressure is on him after Kobe Bryant went down with a ruptured Achilles Friday night. While Dwight did well in his first game post Kobe (26 pts, 17 rbs), he has knows it will take a lot more than just one game to convince [...]
Dwight Howard is a lot of things on and off the court. When healthy, he shows signs of being a great defensive player while still being able to dominate the post on offense. However as of the last year or so, people aren’t praising the three-time defensive player of the year. Instead his indecisive personality and his inability to be forthcoming in his decisions has drawn more...
Mike D’Antoni was extraordinarily harsh on Pau Gasol when he took over the job as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers in November, but he’s finally softening his stance on the big man.
Gasol returned to the starting lineup on March 25 after missing six weeks with a foot injury. The team has gone 8-2 in its last 10 games — all of which Gasol has played over 30 minutes. Save...
Kobe Bryant recently underwent surgery to repair his torn Achilles. According to Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard visited him twice in the hospital. Howard knows the feeling of having to miss [...]
With Kobe Bryant out with an injury the Los Angeles Lakers need that face of the franchise. Right now until the rest of the season it will be Dwight Howard. Right now Howard is not singed through next season, and he has been non-committal about his future especially with the Lakers.
Now according to a report by Sam Amick of the USA Today, Howard will resign with the Lakers.
Although Kobe Bryant's season is over, Dwight Howard thinks the Los Angeles Lakers' fun has just begun.
The Lakers are still digesting the news they'll be without their top scorer and team leader for the rest of the season after Bryant tore his Achilles tendon last week.
The rest of Los Angeles' roster rallied for a win over powerful San Antonio on Sunday night...

In a pre-game interview, John Ireland asked Coach Mike D’Antoni what he planned to tell the team in order to get ready for tonight’s game.
“Bad things are gonna happen, “ D’Antoni said. “But don’t tie your troubles together.”
There were certainly troubles with which the Lakers had to face tonight. A team who averaged the...
Has There Ever Been A More Eventful Lakers Season?
Think about it.
There have certainly been better seasons in Laker-Land.
Many eventful ones too – 2008 springs to mind – from Kobe’s trade demand, to Bynum’s emergence and injury, through Gasol’s arrival and a Finals run.
2004 was pretty eventful too. Phil even wrote a book about it.
None of these seasons come even CLOSE...
