BEST OF MAXIM
Despite Dwight Howard recently saying that Lakers GM, Mitch Kupchak told him he won’t be traded before Thursday’s trade deadline, his hometown Atlanta Hawks are expected to make a serious run at Howard before the deadline.
According to Ken Berger, CBS Sports:
There’s widespread belief among league execs that the Lakers will not trade Dwight Howard, who is an unrestricted free...

Sounds promising Lakers Fans right? But…………...
If you thought the Dwight Howard "All-Star Weekend drama" was over, think again. Howard's troubles for All-Star weekend, festivities to celebrate the players who have played well and more importantly the fans of the NBA with special celebrations and events, began when he decided to mock his own teammate on the Los Angeles Lakers in Kobe Bryant by putting on his jersey...
The drama never stops with the Los Angeles Lakers. Before the Dwight Howard trade became a done deal, both Dwight and Kobe Bryant were hesitant to become teammates. Kobe made [...]

You know your season is going pretty bad when your coach is yelling at you during the All-Star Game.
After all, the weekend is supposed to be a time to relax and kick back a little bit. Yes, there are those required media appearances and the game itself, but that is supposed to be low stress and a good time. The perfect environment for the happy-go-lucky Dwight Howard.
Dwight Howard reportedly made jokes at the expense of teammate, Kobe Bryant during All-Star weekend, but that wasn’t his only incident. It has now emerged that Howard may have even taken the All-Star game too casually and had “a few f-bombs” thrown his way from Gregg Popovich.

If the Los Angeles Lakers are exploring the possibility of trading Dwight Howard before the trade deadline on Thursday, they don’t want anyone to know about it. During an interview with ESPN’s Colin Cowherd on Wednesday, Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak had nothing but praise for his center.
In fact, praise would be an understatement. Kupchak said the team has no intention...
After all of this afternoon's trepidation over the trade deadline, the Celtics failed to come away with any of the supposed big names: Josh Smith, Dwight Howard, Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan. But it also means that franchise cornerstones Truth and KG remain in Green. Not a bad take away from a rather nerve-wracking couple of weeks. #BleedGreen!

Mitch Kupchak stressed Dwight Howard will fully recover at some point and that the center will be a major part of the Lakers' future.
You knew that the Lakers and their fans would be emotional tonight, and that L.A. would feed off of it, but the Celtics showed little resistance. Call it “tired legs”, second night of a back-to-back, blah blah. Boston just did not play defense tonight. Period. They fall 113-99 on L.A.
