Today, adidas unveils the adiPower Howard – an all-new signature shoe for four-time All-Star and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard. The adiPower Howard is the third signature shoe for Dwight, and features a SPRINTSKIN upper for increased strength and reduced weight and Z-Torsion technology for stability on the court.
Each shoe features the number 12 on the outside ankle support area. The three stripes are broken into separate pin lines inspired by his jersey. Dwight’s signature is placed at the top of the tongue and numbers 1 and 2 are placed on the base of the tongue on the right and left shoe respectively. The sockliner features the famous grin of this known funnyman. The adiPower Howard is available today and will roll out in two additional colorways this year.
More pics and a review of the shoe by Dwight Howard himself below.

Last week, Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard announced on Twitter that Shaquille O’Neal was invited to his charity game. That news seemed odd because, as far as most of us know, Howard and Shaq aren’t friends off the court.
Dwight Howard hears your concerns, especially you Magic fans out there. He appreciates the Stay Dwight campaign, and doesn’t seem like he really wants to leave. It’s as if he’s slowly being pulled away towards the big city – L.A. or New York. He wants to show he cares. So come Nov. 13, he’ll be [...]
Note: since there is no basketball, and we were supposed to have games, we will imagine there were games. With the help of AccuScore, Strat-o-Matic and Basketball Prospectus, we can imagine an NBA season even if there is not one actually going on. So with that, we begin to imagine the 2011-12 season.
One thing is certain after one game. The Magic need Dwight Howard on the floor...

When the NBA released its schedule for the 2011-12 season back in July, we all got excited. I mean, who wouldn’t? A new season means a fresh start before any true delusions of grandeur set in. “Believe me, the T-Wolves could go 82-0!” “Why wouldn’t the Magic trade us Dwight Howard for Theo Ratliff?!” “I [...]
