By the time Howard had finally decided there was no going back to Orlando -- he had already physically left The City Beautiful in March for back surgery -- the Nets had moved on. Literally to Brooklyn but also past Howard. The Nets were done waiting.

According to sources, King was planning to contact the Minnesota Timberwolves in order to gau...

KEEP IT POSITIVE
Dwight Howard said that he was sick of negativity surrounding the Lakers during their disappointing losing season. They won their first game after he made his comments.
While Bryant acknowledged that the meeting took place, he disputed his part in it. “I never asked him (if he disliked playing alongside Bryant),” Bryant said. “I never asked him that.”
So, Bryant was asked, what did he say? “It’s private; it’s private,” he said. “But I never asked him that, so I’m not quite sure where that came from. That’s not in my personality...

Rick Pitino blamed their...

They shot 50% from the line going 12 of 24, while the Villanova...
