You’ve had an injury plagued season leading to the worst statistics of your career and have aided in setting a New York Jets-esque locker room standard of publicly announcing misgivings with the franchise, players, and coaching staff....

Dwight Howard said his shoulder is hurting, teams are trying to injury him, his back is so bad he can barely walk, but instead of taking the All-Star Weekend off to heal up for a playoff run he has decided play in the All-Star Game.
Dwight Howard says he will play in the All Star game if he doesnt have any setbacks with his shoulder

Dwight Howard has some type of inherent flaw. I won’t pretend to be an avid NBA fan. When the big games are on, I watch and enjoy. I soak in a player’s greatness and watch him flourish. During the playoffs, I make a conscious effort to catch the contests at hand. I don’t dislike the [...]The post Dwight Howard’s Inherent Flaws Prove Troublesome appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
When a player has a weakness, it will usually be exposed. This is true when talking about that player's game or an injury. In Dwight Howard's case, his shoulder problems are common knowledge around the league. And he says teams exploit that.According to Eric Adelson of Yahoo!

Steve Nash played through a number of frustrating seasons with the Phoenix Suns, but he rarely ever said much about it. Nash has always been one of the more quiet players in the league, so when he says something that can be construed as a complaint about a teammate it’s fairly notable. Nash and Dwight Howard, the Los Angeles Lakers’ two biggest offseason acquisitions, have not...
The Dallas Mavericks and the Atlanta Hawks are both going in interesting directions at the moment. Both are going to have the salary cap room to go after the off-season's biggest free agent, Dwight Howard, but both have to make sure that they don't make the wrong move here at the trade deadline. Stars on both teams are clearly on the trading block right now, and with the...

STANDS BY HIS WORDS
Lakers star Kobe Bryant defended his comments that some interpreted as critical about teammate Dwight Howard, saying it's all a "manufactured conflict."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dwight Howard had 19 points and 18 rebounds, Antawn Jamison added 19 points, and the Los Angeles Lakers survived Kobe Bryant's bizarre four-point performance for their eighth win in 11 games, 91-85 over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.
Former L.A. Lakers head coach Mike Brown is one of the nicest guys in the NBA, however, that doesn’t always translate to much.
Appearing on ESPN radio with Colin Cowherd he shed some light on being fired and replaced by Mike D’Antoni.
Cowherd asked what his feelings were when released or fired and Brown responded with “I was shocked.”
Only a few games into the season one...

After two weeks and seven games on the road, the Lakers returned to the comforts of Staples Center to face a Phoenix Suns team who recently rallied in the final minutes of their last contest to beat them in the end.
Looking determined to prevent the same ending, the Lakers got...
The Lakers (24-28) return home after finishing a 4-3 effort in their longest road trip of the season. That road trip started in a shocking 92-86 loss to the Phoenix Suns (17-35), a team that was and still at the bottom of the Western Conference. Needless to say, the purple and gold are looking for some payback tonight.
The last 10 days away from Los Angeles didn't go through...
