The Rockets were not on Dwight Howard's preferred list of franchises he would welcome a trade to, but he didn't specifically have an issue with the team.
BEST OF MAXIM
Dwight Howard was once associated with the Orlando Magic and the whole he said/she said continued to plague the league for almost a year. Now that he is with the Los Angeles Lakers, everyone seems to have forgotten about the whole “Dwightmare” that surrounded him and the Magic.
At that time of difficulty between both parties, other teams were clearing space in an attempt to...
In last night’s game against the Houston Rockets, Kobe Bryant recorded his 18th triple-double of his veteran career. Not only was the Black Mamba being his usual self being a scorer and hitting the most difficult shots, but he was also grabbing rebounds and dishing out assists. Most of his assists came from Dwight Howard being active and catching Kobe’s lobs.
When the Dwight...
With all the hoopla of Mike Brown’s hiring, Mike D’Antoni’s hiring and Magic’s mouring; it may have slipped under the radar that Wednesday was Dwight Howard day in Los Angeles. Proclaimed by Councilman Bernard Parks and Council Woman Jan Perry, Snoop Dog read the proclamation and DH was serenaded by a gospel choir.
Tweet The Los Angeles Lakers are finally on a roll. The high-profile team has gone 4-1 since firing head coach Mike Brown, and appear to be playing with a lot more energy since scrapping the Princeton offense and just playing basketball. Kobe Bryant is off to one of the best starts of his career, with [...]
LOS ANGELES Ten games into the season, it's probably safe to say that the Lakers have arrived. Or they've returned, depending upon your point of view.
Dwight Howard is back. So is his back. Pau Gasol is back. Enthusiasm is back. Entertaining and effective basketball has arrived at Staples Center, as the Lakers won their second in a row with Mike D'Antoni in the building...
One of our twitter readers Mike Gomez brought this pic to our attention. Interesting. Funny how Rajon Rondo isn't allowed to "disrespect" the Laker legend Jerry West, but a Laker is. Could have just been an accident, but if he does it again the NBA better be on Howard and the Lakers. Speaking of Howard and the Lakers the damaged goods they traded, Andrew Bynum, had...
While Los Angeles Lakers fans might get their first chance to see new coach Mike D'Antoni on Tuesday night, the Brooklyn Nets will get their first look at a player who almost ended up on their team.
Dwight Howard will try to lead the suddenly high-powered Lakers to a season-high third straight victory while denying the surging Nets their longest win streak in seven seasons....
LOS ANGELES "Brown is a good coach 314 regular-season wins don't lie. He actually has a full season this year to show it. Let him."
I wrote that at the end of last week's "Three Thoughts." I didn't know it was also going to be the end of Mike Brown. But I still stand by what I wrote Mike Brown is a good coach.
He's just not the right coach...
New Lakers coach, Mike D’Antoni, held his first practice on Thursday a day after arriving in L.A. Still on crutches due to a recent knee replacement surgery, D’Antoni was seen catching up with Steve Nash and sharing a laugh with Dwight Howard and Jordan Hill. Of course the biggest issue was how D’Antoni would interact with Kobe [...]
