The post Dwight Howard blames Los Angeles Lakers losses on his poor conditioning appeared first on Players View Dot Net.
While Pau Gasol rehabs his torn plantar fascia, Lakers head coach, Mike D’Antoni suggested that the power forward won’t have an impact on whether the Lakers make the playoffs or not, because he won’t be healthy until after the fact.
According to the Los Angeles Daily News:
“By the time he gets back, we’ll be in or out,” D’Antoni said. “His impact will be in the playoffs...
The struggles of Dwight Howard and the Lakers don’t have anything to do with coaching changes, disagreements with Kobe Bryant, or injuries, but they have everything to do with candy.
According to ESPN.com, Howard revealed in an interview that his poor conditioning and inconsistent energy may have been the cause of some of the Lakers’ losses this season.
We know that Dwight Howard likes drama. If you believe ESPN, he’s more concerned with where he’s going than where he is. We know that Dwight Howard likes missing free throws. Fine, he might not like to, but he hasn’t shot over 60% from the line since his rookie season seven years ago, including 49% over the past two seasons. One thing you might not know about...
Burn……….. Kobe went 13-21, 38 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists, while torching several Dallas Mavericks defenders in the process. Mark Cuban had suggested that the Lakers should Amnesty Kobe and here is what Kobe had to say about that. Amnesty THAT — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) February 24, 2013 This is Kobe’s 17th year in the league and even though the team isn’t playing...
Dwight is still talking, maybe he should be on the elliptical or something. He has mentioned several times that he still isn’t in shape, I think everyone knows that by now, so no need to keep talking about it.
This time he says the fact he can’t get in shape is one of the reasons the Lakers are still under .500.
“You’ve got to have energy and I want to bring that energy every...
What do you think of this fan's design?
On Friday night, Mark Cuban raised the question of whether or not the Los Angeles Lakers could benefit from releasing Kobe Bryant through the amnesty provision next season. From a financial standpoint, it makes sense. The Lakers are looking to sign Dwight Howard to a long-term extension and are about $30 million over the luxury tax. Kobe is set to earn $30.45 million next season...
It was a Dirk-vs.Kobe duel, but big-picture, Sunday at the American Airlines Center was more than that: Dallas and LA combined to win three of the past four NBA titles, and while the Lakers' 103-99 win was a thriller - and while it was fun watching the once-mighty play at a high level ... the once-mighty fell again.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
The Sunday matinee matchup...
Kobe Bryant was named Western Conference Player of the Week after averaging 31.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 6.0 assists and going a perfect 3-0.
The Black Mamba slithered past the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, with a 38-point, 12-rebound, seven-assist drubbing that he rubbed in Mavs owner Mark Cuban's face afterward.
You heard the old adage, "Never wake a sleeping giant," right?
Well apparently it fell on deaf ears recently as Mavericks owner Mark Cuban suggested the Lakers should amnesty Kobe Bryant next season thus saving the team some money and getting some luxury tax relief.
Well, that is all the Bryant needed to hear. Cuban poked the proverbial bear in his cage and Kobe dropped...
Mark Cuban gets in trouble for saying all kinds of things, so it wasn’t surprising when his suggestion that a conference rival get rid of its best player was met with squawks.
Kobe Bryant going off for 38 points and then tweeting “Amnesty THAT” was just the beginning, though. The NBA is now looking into fining Cuban for his comments, according to The Los Angeles Times.
Los Angeles Lakers (28-29) vs. Denver Nuggets (35-22)
The Lakers are making their run. By golly, all the bluster and promises that their season starts now -- or is it now? -- is starting to come true. Dwight Howard said he did not have his conditioning right at the beginning of the season and has begun getting more comfortable or accepting the fact that he will not...
