If you are a Los Angeles Lakers fans, you will love this. If you are an Orlando Magic fan, then this will only fuel your dislike for Dwight Howard. Howard took to his official Facebook page and uploaded a drawing of him following in the line of past Laker great centers such as Jabbar and Chamberlain. Brace yourself Magic fans because this might sting a bit (h/t Orlando Sentinel). Check it out. OK so Howard is happy to be a Laker (obviously) but now he has to prove it. All those past Laker centers brought a title to L.A. and Howard did not while in Orlando. Add the fact he has considerably more talent surrounding him in L.A. than he had in Orlando, it is almost safe to say much is expected from him next season. Will he and the Lakers rise to the expectations remains to be seen but make no mistake, Howard is under the spotlight next season. Those are some huge shadows to fall under, and Laker fans will be hoping for another title next season while Magic fans are hopin...

Pain suddenly name of game in NBA

Now that Dwight Howard has been traded and solved the summers biggest riddle, theres really only one question left:Hows the back, big fella?That seems to be something most fans and media would prefer to ignore.

Howard Trade Benefits 76ers More in the Long Run

By: Scott Burks We have all heard about the much-ballyhooed trade that rocked the NBA world by now: the four-team trade that sent Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers for some picks and a couple of scrubs.  The part of the four-teamer that folks didn’t pay as much attention to was the Philadelphia 76ers getting Andrew Bynum.

Lakers have improved, but championships aren’t won in August

There is something to be said about being a cockeyed optimist. So, I will say it: It’s not a good practice to which to adhere. Keep in mind, that sentence was written by someone who is the nonfiction equivalent of Chicken Little. I, like everyone else, tend to get wrapped up in what’s popular, or “trending” as the zeitgeist would have it. The only problem is I’m usually...
