PLAYERS: Dwight Howard
TEAMS: Houston Rockets
Apparently, James Harden is already just as sick of Dwight Howard as the rest of us. Yesterday he walked into a media session, but asked the reporters to promise not to ask him any questions about D12. They told him they couldn’t make that promise.

One such critic has been Howard's former coach Mike D'Antoni.

Transfer of power requires Great Man

Tucked away in the mess that was Dwight Howard's unhappy tenure in Los Angeles was another relevant, interesting truth about the Lakers, their future and the nature of prolonged greatness in the NBA. Any team hoping for sustained dominance is best served with a star able to turn his franchise over to someone else. And Kobe -- along with his Lakers -- is particularly ill-equipped...

Will Geico-branded Dikembe Mutombo baby toys be on the horizon? We shall see. H/T NIS. Related posts: Dikembe...

Authentic Dwight Jerseys Are Selling For $20

According to Deadspin, Staples Center is desperately trying to get rid of its stock of Dwight Howard jerseys, discounting team authentics to $20.

Marcus Camby reportedly leaning toward signing with Houston Rockets

It is hard to argue against Marcus Camby’s 17-year NBA career and the experience he brings to any team in the league at 39 years old. So do not just assume this is another roster filler free-agent signing that is about to go down over the next few days. Far from it.
