BEST OF MAXIM
Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard was a hacking victim of Los Angeles Lakers defenders who repeatedly sent him to the free throw line with deliberate fouls during the fourth quarter of Thursday night's game.
Howard made his best effort to run away from his former teammates, almost like someone playing a game of tag rather than basketball. Howard's efforts were unsuccessful...
Ever since Dwight Howard signed a contract with the Houston Rockets this summer, everyone has been speculating over whether or not Omer Asik would get traded to another team. In fact, he asked to be traded when he thought that he was going to be Dwight’s backup for the season. Instead of trading Asik, Rockets GM Darryl Morey opted to keep Asik and suggest to coach Kevin McHale...
Houston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons threw down a massive one-handed dunk over the Lakers' Chris Kaman, posterizing the big man.
Tweet It’s seems like every time Dwight Howard opens his mouth these days, the topic of him leaving the Los Angeles Lakers to sign with the Houston Rockets has been the focus. Howard says that he’s done talking about the Lakers, as he is set to face them Thursday evening in Houston: “I don’t think there’s a need for me to continue to talk about...
Dwight Howard‘s first game against the Los Angeles Lakers will not be a game he’ll forget any time soon. The Houston Rockets were down 19 points before storming back and eventually taking a six point lead via “Hack-a-Dwight.” But then things fell apart as Howard started missing free throws and had a chance to ice the game being up two points, but missed both free throws...
The Houston Rockets are already reaping the benefits of signing the biggest free agent this summer. The Rockets are off to a hot start at 4-2 and with Dwight Howard and James Harden in the fold, Houston may be looking at a deep playoff push.
However, former San Antonio Spurs guard Steve Kerr doesn't think Houston has what it takes to be a title contender this season.
Dwight will play the Lakers on Thursday and he had a lot of say about his former team and fans.
“It’s time for everybody to get over it,” Howard continued. “It happened. It’s in the past. I’ve gotten over it. It didn’t work out (with the Lakers last season). The timing was off. It just wasn’t (there). Everybody was injured.
“People can say that I ran from the situation...
Dwight Howard is pulling down a career-best 14.6 rebounds per game early this NBA season. Unfortunately, he’s also shooting a shade under his career average in free throw percentage — a measly 56.3%. The Los Angeles Lakers, who were visiting their former teammate in Houston on Thursday night, are acutely aware of Howard’s free throw line futility. Howard shot 5-16 from the...
Dwight Howard stepping into an Octagon for a real UFC fight would be must-see television.
But despite how far-fetched the idea of the Houston Rockets superstar center taking part in this kind of event seems, Howard wouldn’t rule out the possibility of it happening down the road.
The 29-year-old explained at a recent UFC event in Houston that “he’d be willing to one day fight...
Earlier this month Houston Rockets big man Dwight Howard attended a UFC event in Houston and told UFC president Dana White that for the right price he would fight in the cage.
Howard’s price is $10 million.
“I would get up there and fight. If I get knocked out, I get knocked out,” Howard said. “I’ll get back up one day.”
White immediately interjected. “I want to do...
Howard isn’t exactly small.
Ok, call me crazy here, but I have to think you could get almost anyone to take an ass-kicking for $10 million. Alas, Dwight Howard is Dwight Howard, so when he said he would hop into the UFC octagon and fight for ten milly, it was news.

During a backstage visit at a UFC fight in Houston, the Rockets’ big man told UFC president Dana...
Houston, Texas— It was all set up for Dwight Howard to stick it to his former team with his Rockets in Houston as they were up 98-96 with 3.4 seconds left in the game. Then Steve Blake nails the game-winning 3 ball with 1.3 seconds left to take a Lakers victory 99-98 ending Howard’s chance at […]
I am not a fan of the “Hack-a-Whoever”, but there are times that it works. Especially with someone as emotionally fragile as Dwight Howard.
Howard went 5-16 from the Free Throw line (missed 7 in the 4th quarter) and that allowed Steve Blake to have an opportunity to hit the game winning three.
How scared was Dwight of going to the free throw line? Check out this GIF from SB Nation...
The Lakers and Rockets will play tonight and per usual, Dwight has a lot to say about a situation he claims he wants everybody to move on from. It’s time for everybody to get over it,” Howard continued. “It happened. It’s in the past. I’ve gotten over it. It didn’t work out (with the Lakers […]
