The Dwight Howard drama has now been going on for three years, with two teams, on two different coasts. There are still constant rumblings about where he will end up. He recently stated this week that he knew where he was going to play next year, but in reality there are only four possible outcomes.
Most Probable: Resigns with Los Angeles Lakers
- The Lakers can offer him the most money, because they own his rights, but he also gets to be a star and celebrity in Hollywood and he will eventually be the king of LA once Kobe retires. Those are three strong reasons why Dwight will most likely stay in LA. However, this season’s drama could sway his opinion of the team and if he has problems with management, Kobe or Mike D’Anotni, then he could choose to leave. Overall, the allure of Los Angeles and the highest payday possible, will most likely keep Dwight with the Lakers long term. This is by far the most logical option for Dwight Howard.
Possible: Signs with Dallas Mavericks
- If Howard...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Dallas Mavericks are in a better position than the Los Angeles Lakers as it stands now. Not many people would have predicted that when the season began. The Lakers had a healthy roster including Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol. The Mavericks, on the other hand, were preparing for the first part of their season without Dirk Nowitzki. Yet despite...
Lost in the Lakers’ blowout victory in Philly was a huge night from Swaggy P. Filling in for leading scorer Jrue Holiday, Nick Young went off for a season-high 30 points, and on a respectable 12-23 from the floor. Swaggy did the majority of his damage from the outside… he knocked down six three-pointers and a variety of other jump shots, but he also managed to throw down...
For the upcoming All-Star Game in Houston, Texas, it will mark the first time the center position will not be a position fans can vote on. Instead, fans can vote for three forwards/big men on their ballot.
Though this will open up a spot for those tweener guys like Tim Duncan, it doesn't help Lakers' Dwight Howard who is a pure center.
Now the chance of him not making...
Those rumors that the Los Angeles Lakers may shop Dwight Howard? Don't believe them for a second.
The Los Angeles Lakers took their talent to Philadelphia Sunday evening as they matched up against the 76ers, and with just a few minutes of the first quarter underway there was a particularly entertaining highlight and this had nothing to do with Kobe Bryant. Into the 8 minute mark of the first quarter, Dwight Howard [...]The post Kwame Brown Blocks Dwight Howard (Video) appeared...
For someone who has yet to play a game for the Philadelphia 76ers or prove that he can be a difference-maker for their franchise, Andrew Bynum is awfully confident. While it’s still incredibly early, you could make the argument at the moment that the Los Angeles Lakers were better with Bynum than they are with Dwight Howard. A number of other factors are at play, but Bynum still...
Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum, whose been battling knee problems since his trade to Philadelphia, believes he's the best center in the NBA, and has some advice for his former team.
"I don't regret anything. Personally, they traded No. 1 for No. 2 and that is what happened," said Bynum, referring to the four team trade that sent him to Philly and Dwight...
Ever wondered what Lakers center Dwight Howard would be like as a ghost hunter or Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio as a backyard wrestler?The fine folks over at Foot Locker and Adidas have those answers in the below commercials:
The Lakers are on the hook for about 30 million in luxury tax this season. Compared with what they may pay next season, that's almost nothing.
The league's new collective bargaining agreement includes a graduated tax that kicks in for the 2013-14 season. For every additional 5 million the team is over the tax threshold, the rate increases.
Naturally the team has every hope...
Andrew Bynum is 7 feet tall and supposed to be one of the NBA’s best centers.
Instead, he’s spent most of this season working back from knee injuries amidst reports that he’d rather be bowling (which complicated one of the knee injuries) or just not playing basketball at all. Still, Bynum has apparently found some room to throw stones when it comes to explaining why his career...
The Lakers had a busy off-season, bringing in eight new players while re-signing three.
Dwight Howard, Earl Clark and Chris Duhon came from the Orlando Magic via trade. Steve Nash was acquired through a sign and trade with the Phoenix Suns. Robert Sacre and Darius Johnson-Odom were both picked up in the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft.
Under typical circumstances, when a player...

We’d forgotten what Kobe Bryant’s signature smirk looked like; wondered where Dwight Howard’s happy-go-lucky persona had gone; didn’t know when Metta World-Peace’s random comical remarks would make their re-appearance.

The other night while I was watching the Lakers take on the abysmal Washington Wizards, I became increasingly frustrated as the game went on watching Dwight Howard. I became frustrated because the more and more I watched Howard, I realized he had no game. Now don’t get me wrong, Howard has unbelievable athletic ability, however being a great athlete doesn’t necessarily make you...
The Magic, of all teams, kicked off a debate that has been plaguing the NBA since Gregg Popovich started fouling Shaquille O'Neal, or maybe the strategy even dates back to Wilt Chamberlain and his famous clanking ability from the so-called charity stripe.
From a strategy perspective, it makes sense. If Howard is shooting only 49.2 percent from the foul line, the risk that he...
The Lakers did not see Andrew Bynum on the court when they visited the Sixers on Sunday. Bynum has yet to play with knee injuries while Dwight Howard started the season on time despite an early projection he’d be out until January. The Lakers played a loose brand of basketball in Philadelphia on Sunday, taking…
