The best rebounder in the NBA appears to be headed to the Chicago Bulls. Settle down. Dwight Howard, who led the league with 14.5 rebounds per game last season, is still a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. The man who is set to join the Bulls is Kyrylo Fesenko, the 25-year-old Unkrainian center who led the league last season with a 27.3 rebounding percentage. Granted, Fesenko only played in three games for a total of 17 minutes, but nabbing more than a quarter of the available missed shots while he was on the court is still pretty good, right?...

Bryant's response when asked about Howard joining the Los Angeles Lakers:
"He's one of the most dominant defensive players the game has ever seen. We add him to the talent that we have. It's going to be exciting. I'm really looking forward to it...
Yes, this is a video of Dwight Howard working on his hook shot, but I’m bored of Dwight.
At least until the season starts.
What’s more interesting here is that you can see Fisher practicing with the Lakers in the background. I know they say he isn’t signing with them, but c’mon.
Do you Lakers fans want to see Fish back in purple and yellow?
Like Andrew Bynum Dorell Wright was acquired by the Philadelphia 76ers this summer. Recently Wright had some very high praise for his new teammate Bynum.
