Dwight Howard on Marc Gasol Winning DPOY: “It’s Funny”

Dwight Howard gets decimated by LA media

How bad is the situation in Los Angeles for Dwight Howard? Not only are the Lakers down 2-0 to the Spurs, but Howard is getting blasted by the media for the lack of impact he’s had in the first two games: Dwight Howard, who could soon sign a $118-million contract to become the Lakers’ next Shaquille O’Neal, is not playing like Shaquille O’Neal.

LeBron expresses frustration after losing Defensive Player of the Year award to Marc Gasol

LeBron is a true competitor to the very end. Dude doesn't want to lose anything, ever.

Memphis center Marc Gasol spanks himself because he can

While I have even money that this self-spanking trend isn’t going to catch on in the NBA, that isn’t going to stop Marc Gasol from doing it.

Gasol wins Defensive Player of the Year

The NBA MVP does not necessarily have to go to the best player on the best team, but it makes rational sense to make that argument. So when voting for the Defensive Player of the Year Award, why not go with the best defensive player on the league’s best defense? This year, it looks like that is what happened and Memphis Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol will be taking home his first...

LeBron James says coming in second in DPOY voting to Marc Gasol "sucks"

LeBron James was not too happy about coming in second to Marc Gasol in this season’s Defensive Player of the Year voting, and he shouldn’t be.“It sucks,” James stated simply. Gasol had a solid season, and served as the anchor on a very good defensive unit.
