Oak calling out more guys...
BEST OF MAXIM
The only and biggest story of this NBA off season has been the saga of Dwight Howard. It seemed like every day there was a new report or trade rumor on Dwight Howard. Those reports where everything from Howard wanting to stay in Orlando to him demanding a trade.
One former player is speaking out about the whole situation. Here is what Charles Oakley had to say on ESPN...
The Magic are not going to escape Dwight Howard for some time. He will haunt the franchise as it moves toward its future and as the team tries to recover. Until that next superstar center comes, Howard will be the one who got away. And everyone will want to know how the hell that fish got off the line.
Everyone is weighing in trying to pick up the pieces over a wrecked Magic...
Former NBA player Charles Oakley was the definition of a tough player. He was so tough that Michael Jordan trusted him to protect him from the rough style of basketball from the 1980′s. These days, those types of players are hard to come by. The league has become soft with all their rules to “speed up” the game. Nowadays, players have the power to dictate the team...
Charles Oakley is not impressed with Dwight Howard’s antics – who was – but the legendary former Knicks star thinks the Orlando Magic should’ve dealt with Dwight like you do a toddler who has a temper tantrum, put him in timeout. “A lot of guys cry in this league these days. I try not to [...]
Well, it’s really A ball, as in a ping-pong ball, as he was getting his paddle on in the Los Angeles Lakers training facility. Some may think this is kinda “clownish” but as someone who plays ping-pong, it’s actually a great stress reliever and requires a bit of focus, but I do wonder who [...]
Dwight Howard continues to rehabilitate from his back surgery in the Westwood area of Los Angeles.
Oak has had a lot of strong opinions on some of the current players in the NBA. Honestly, they have been spot on. Especially the one about Dwight Howard being a cry baby.
He had a few things to say about Melo and Stat. Carmelo answered the only way he really could.
Charles Oakley was the latest to call out the Knicks stars for “not making their teammates better,” but Anthony...
The Los Angeles Lakers have been busy this off-season. With big name acquisitions, like Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, the Lakers are now the favorites in the Western Conference for five reasons:
Lakers head coach Mike Brown is excited his new starting 5 happens to be the best center in the NBA. Not because of the measly 20.6 PPG Howard averaged last season...
Despite the hesitancy on behalf of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers to close the deal on a proposed three-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Lakers and Andrew Bynum to the Cavaliers, both of these franchises have no choice. They have to agree to the terms. The holdup centers(no pun intended) around both Bynum and Howard's
This summer's free-agent class certainly consisted of some names worth knowing. Deron Williams, Steve Nash and Ray Allen possess the type of talent and experience that can offer considerable help to your team.
But next summer, man. That's when the available talent gets a lot bigger -- both in height and reputation. And Dwight Howard, Andrew Bynum and Chris Paul are just...
Which team in the NBA will be the most riddled with drama next season? The assumption is that it would be the Lakers with all the trades that have went on during the summer and the fact that Dwight Howard has taken his talents from Florida to Los Angeles, but there’s another team that [...]
On Thursday night, Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak pulled out his batters helmet and helmet to cap off a home run summer with a grand slam deal by exchanging Dwight Howard for Andrew Bynum without giving up Pau Gasol. In a historical context, his haul is only the fourth time in NBA history that a franchise added two players with
Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant will make the new-look Los Angeles Lakers a heavy favorite to not only win the Western Conference but the NBA crown as well. However, being overlooked are the defending West champs - Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Thunder have remained in tact, re-signed Serge Ibaka, and after a long march in the playoffs last season, they...
