Dwight Howard is getting what he deserves. It's funny to me

So the Orlando Magic have come out and said they aren't going to trade disgruntled center Dwight Howard anytime soon.

Scola says Rockets going big or going young

The Rockets have been at the front of the offseason. Whether it was getting involved in Dwight Howard rumors or going after and signing Jeremy Lin, you cannot fault Daryl Morey for going out there and being active.
