The can has been kicked again, with the Brooklyn Nets signing center Brook Lopez to a four-year extension and effectively taking...
The dust is settling in Amway Center where Rob Hennigan and the Magic officially put an end to trade discussions with the Nets for the time being and turned their focuse squarely on the head coaching search. There have been very few things that are clear in this whole Dwight Howard saga, but let's try and clear a few things up:
1) Dwight Howard will find it tough to be a Net...
We really haven't weighed in on this and there is no "Concrete" story per say, but it is an opportunity to weigh in on the NBA's biggest (literally) con man.
Dwight Howard wants people to believe that he is a "Great" NBA Basketball player with a big heart who does tons of charitable things.
