Found September 16, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Dwight Howard, who was traded from the Orlando Magic to the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, said he doesn't have any regrets about the series of events that occurred during the past year. "I think everything happened the way that it was meant to happen," Howard said in interview that aired Sunday on ESPN. "I really just wish some of the lies and some of the things being said didn't come out the way it did, you know. "But I have an opportunity to do something great here in L.A, and I can't look back and think about everything that's behind me." Howard was acquired by the Lakers in a four-team trade in July. The deal ended a soap opera that last nearly a year as he wavered in his commitment to the Magic. It also cost the job of Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, after Howard picked up his contract player option for the upcoming season. "... it was a tug of war between my feelings and the fans and everybody else and their feelings and what...

Dwight Howard Still Not Expected to Be Ready for Start of Lakers Camp

Dwight Howard still is not expected to be ready for the start of training camp. And, well, that is all. Howard, who joined the Lakers as part of a four-team trade last month, is rehabbing from surgery in April to address a herniated disk. At the time of the trade, it was reported that Howard would miss the start of the 2012-13 season. Since training camp happens before the season...

Lakers confirm Dwight Howard won’t be ready for training camp or start of preseason

I’ve been voicing the same concern regarding Dwight Howard- whether it was Dwight with the Lakers or elsewhere – what’s up with his back? As expected, the Lakers had an evaluation of Howard at their facilities this week and confirmed that he will miss both training camp and preseason. But this shouldn’t be cause for [...]

The hard lesson Dwight Howard still may not have learned

If there was one obvious lesson to be learned by outside observers of the Dwight Howard mess, it is that he has a deep desire to be loved by everyone. It is why he made the ridiculous move to opt-in to a season in Orlando he really had no intention of playing as a member of the Magic. From there, everything played out like it did (no need for me to rehash that mess) and it culminated...

Howard: 'I Never Wanted Anybody To Hate Me'

Dwight Howard described the events surrounding his trade from the Magic.

Orlando Magic set bar for going low

We all knew the Orlando Magic would never receive a favorable return for Dwight Howard. OK, maybe we didnt know for certain -- but that sure seemed to be the chatter among opposing NBA front-office types. The longer the Magic held onto Howard, it was widely assumed, the less talent they would obtain. And not just because the Magics new GM is barely older than the water boy. Instead...

World Peace wants Lakers to break Bulls' record for wins in a season

NBA training camps have not opened yet, but Lakers forward Metta World Peace has already established a rather outlandish goal for his team. In a recent radio interview, World Peace said the Lakers - who have added Dwight Howard and Steve Nash to a team that already includes Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol - are out to break the NBA record for the best regular-season record, which is...

Magic fan suing team for using her likeness in promotions

Thirty-year old Orlando Magic fan Kristi Slavin has her face and upper body on buses, light-post banners and a tourist magazine because someone in the Magic marketing department thinks she’s pretty. And apparently she isn’t flattered – or she’s going for the American dream and looking to make a quick buck. Slavin and her attorney Hank Hornsby have filed a suit seeking “more...

James Worthy not a fan of Dwight Howard

James Worthy, who announced his new role as the Los Angeles Lakers main studio analyst on Time Warner Cable SportsNet, says, "I wasn't a fan of Dwight Howard." Worthy says he likes players who just do their job, and didn't like how Howard handled the situation in Orlando.   "Who said this, I don't like this coach. To me, that's nonsense," Worthy...

Metta World Peace says no one is getting past the Lakers this year

  There’s a long list of people already hopping on the Lakers’ hype train, including myself. Now we can add one more. Metta World Peace said in a radio interview that he believes his team has what it takes to win it all. "With the way the Lakers are looking this year, I don't see anybody getting past us this year at all," World Peace said.  As...

2013 NBA Preview: Roundtable Volume 2

With the 2012-13 NBA season fast approaching, we as fans take this time to make ridiculous predictions. How many people do you know have picked the Lakers to win the championship next season simply because of Dwight Howard? There’s no logic, no reason in that whatsoever. What makes our jobs here at 110sportz so fun is the fact that we get to use reason and logic to actually argue...
