Beyond The Buzzer:
Toward the end of shootaround Friday, Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash approached Dwight Howard and offered up a couple of tips on how to shoot free throws.
Though Howard is shooting just 46.9 percent from the foul line this season, while Nash is tied with Mark Price for the best free throw percentage in NBA history at 90.4 percent, the Lakers center said he’s had enough of people giving him advice.
“Listen, he was just suggesting some things, but it’s not something that we’ve already talked about or anybody else has suggested,” Howard said. “My mind cannot get clouded with everybody telling me how to shoot a free throw. I just have to go up there and shoot it my way and not get caught up in what everybody else is saying, because that’s when I miss.”

Similar to Ricky Rubio and backyard wrestling, Dwight Howard gives ghost hunting a try in this new Foot Locker x adidas commercial:
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.”...
Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant want this partnership in Los Angeles to work. Lakers fans want this partnership to work. But make no mistake about it; there are legitimate reasons why this could fail.
You have Kobe still wanting everyone to know that the Lakers are still his team. And though Howard wants you to believe he’s cool with that, he really isn’t.
And on the flip-side...
According to Lakers beat reporter Dave McMenamin, the Los Angeles Lakers were watching the Celtics-76ers game in the locker room before their game against the Thunder tonight and were impressed by Rajon Rondo's near triple-double in the first half (he went on to secure the triple-double in the 3rd quarter).

Roy Hibbert is coming for your title, Dwight Howard. He might not be coming swiftly, or very directly, but he is coming. Hibbert intends to be the best center in the NBA one day, supplanting Howard as the elite of that position, the struggling Pacers center declared while denying that he posted a photo with “#[expletive]Dwight” on Instagram. Hibbert’s offensive decline has...
David Stern is at it again, wanting to change the rules of the NBA. This time it's after the Houston Rockets were able to effectively use the "hack-a-Howard" strategy to foul Dwight Howard away from the ball (not just in the final 2 minutes) and earn a comeback victory after Dwight missed about 50% of his free throws.
From NBC Sports:
David Stern is all about the...
