We learned this summer that Kevin Garnett views Dwight Howard as a clown and politely encourages him to paint his face during games. But now, we’re finding out that KG’s disdain for Howard runs a bit deeper than on-the-court quips. TNT’s Craig Sager shared this story during an appearance this morning on 98.5′s Toucher and Rich. Here’s my (loose) transcription: We had one (All-Star weekend interview) scheduled two years ago, Kevin Garnett with Dwight Howard. And it was set up through the NBA and I’m sitting there with Dwight Howard but no KG. I go back in the locker room and KG’s just sitting in his chair. Doc Rivers (who was coaching the team at the time) said, “KG, are you supposed to do an interview with Craig Sager?” KG said, “Yeah, but I’m not doing it with Dwight Howard standing there.” Then he obviously threw out some profanity and said there’s no way he’s going to stand there next to Dwight Howard to do an interview. I guess this means Garnett and Carmelo Anthony won’t be

Dwight Howard has some type of inherent flaw. I won’t pretend to be an avid NBA fan. When the big games are on, I watch and enjoy. I soak in a player’s greatness and watch him flourish. During the playoffs, I make a conscious effort to catch the contests at hand. I don’t dislike the [...]The post Dwight Howard’s Inherent Flaws Prove Troublesome appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant were elected starters for Sunday night's NBA All-Star game in Houston.
Despite playing through a torn labrum in his right shoulder, Howard said Monday that he expects to play.
"If I re-aggravate my shoulder in these next two games, I'll probably just play a couple of minutes and sit the rest out," Howard said.
Coach Mike D'Antoni...

There’s an entire city that knows just what to expect, used to the futility and long suffering, used to the phoniness and broken promises. It’s because Dwight Howard is unhappy with the team and his teammates and couldn’t care less about the Los Angeles Lakers, pouting about the number of touches and finding convenient excuses to sit out a game as he supposedly...
In a very interesting take by Lakers beat writer Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register, the problem that continues to plague the Los Angeles Lakers is Dwight Howard. During [...]
The Lakers are falling apart and at the center of that is Dwight Howard. Doesn’t matter if it is Kobe, D’Antoni, Nash or Earl Clark no one seems to like Dwight and they question his effort.
With that being said, Kobe blames the media for it blowing up.
Bryant told the media before the Lakers practice on Monday that, ”I didn’t say anything wrong. I didn’t say anything to...
The Dallas Mavericks and the Atlanta Hawks are both going in interesting directions at the moment. Both are going to have the salary cap room to go after the off-season's biggest free agent, Dwight Howard, but both have to make sure that they don't make the wrong move here at the trade deadline. Stars on both teams are clearly on the trading block right now, and with the...
Did Kevin Garnett unintentionally announce his retirement tonight? When the 17-year veteran was asked about this weekend’s All-Star game following the Celtics’ 71-69 win over the Bulls, he responded by saying it would be his last. When asked why, the Celtic, who has two years and $23.5 million remaining on his contract after this season, said “Ya’ll don’t know what I know...
At this rate, the Celtics might just have to call the season sometime around early March when they run out of players.
Shortly after the Celtics’ seven-game winning streak came to an end in Charlotte, Kevin Garnett informed reporters that Celtics players were told in the locker room that Leandro Barbosa is done for the season.
The severity of Barbosa’s injury was not immediately...
When your playing a game on the playground or on the court out by the beach it is not unusual to see--or hear guys do a little trash talking. The movie White Men Can't Jump counted on it to add some humor to the movie--well, because it's funny even when delivered in the most serious manner.
I am not foolish enough to believe for even a second that there isn...
Former L.A. Lakers head coach Mike Brown is one of the nicest guys in the NBA, however, that doesn’t always translate to much.
Appearing on ESPN radio with Colin Cowherd he shed some light on being fired and replaced by Mike D’Antoni.
Cowherd asked what his feelings were when released or fired and Brown responded with “I was shocked.”
Only a few games into the season one...
BOSTON — Already short on bodies, the Celtics were almost another man down on Wednesday.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers offered Kevin Garnett, the 36-year-old center who will be taking part in his 15th All-Star game this weekend, a chance to sit out the game against the Bulls to get some much-needed rest. As much as Garnett admitted he could use the respite, one look around the locker...
Josh Smith has again been linked to Boston by a respected NBA reporter.
I keep hearing Josh Smith's primary destination is Boston.— Gery Woelfel (@GeryWoelfel) February 14, 2013
"Primary destination" can mean trade destination or as a free agent.
It's been well documented the immensely talented, immensely frustrating Smith is a good friend of Rajon Rondo....
Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo may be out for the season with a torn ACL, but that doesn't mean he's gonna just sit at home.

The Lakers (24-28) return home after finishing a 4-3 effort in their longest road trip of the season. That road trip started in a shocking 92-86 loss to the Phoenix Suns (17-35), a team that was and still at the bottom of the Western Conference. Needless to say, the purple and gold are looking for some payback tonight.
The last 10 days away from Los Angeles didn't go through...

Here’s a line you haven’t read this season: The Lakers could have won it. Okay fine, we’ve actually said that before…a lot, because goodness knows the Lakers have come close to winning a lot of games this past season but have always found a way to falter in the end. If we re-watch those 28 losses, I guarantee at least half of them...
