As many already know off the court NBA Superstar Dwight Howard is a guy who likes to joke around a lot and have a good time with fans, his teammates, and the media. So, it should come as no surprise to hear that Howard’s new commercial for Adidas is completely ridiculous. This new Foot Locker commercial stars Dwight Howard as the ghost hunter. In the commercial, the voiceover guy asks if Howard leaves the basketball court everyday and turns into the ghost hunter. The commercial then shows a night vision view of Howard out looking for ghosts and running away screaming like a little girl. The camera then pans to a shot of Howard kicking it with a couple of his friends in some fresh Adidas gear.

Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant, who is now at 10,517 career points after scoring 36 in the Thunder's 114-108 victory over the Lakers Friday night, remembers growing up and watching Kobe Bryant dominate.  “I didn't really get to see a lot of Jordan in his prime,” said Durant, who then playfully took a jab at Bryant. “But seeing Kobe, I know he's an old fart.”...

The worst free-throw attempt in basketball history

This video makes Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard look like the best free throw shooters in the business. Both O’Neal and Howard are notorious for being horrendous at shooting free throws, but at least they can get the ball in proximity of the rim.

Lakers fall to to 9-12 as their defense becomes an issue

The Los Angeles Lakers have one heck of a starting lineup.  With such an All-Star lineup, you would expect them to have a loss column in the single-digits.  Except in this particular season, the Lakers have 12 losses piled up.  One thing is for sure, getting a new coach did not solve all their problems.  That move, however, did help rejuvenate the team in terms of a new style...

Simers, going after Jim Mora Jr. a couple weeks ago during a press conference. Simers has changed seasons and is now attacking Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni over the defensive effort from the team after last night’s 100-94 loss in Cleveland (box score).  The Lakers are now 9-13 and just lost to the now 5-17...

Full-Court Press: NBA's big men off center

This was the summer of the center, even the summer of the centers.
