The NBA Passionista:
There’s been a tremendous amount of attention shined on the Los Angeles Lakers for acquiring Dwight Howard close to nothing. Afterall, they were able to hold on to Pau Gasol and “only” departing with Andrew Bynum. Let’s give credit where credit is due. However, let’s not forget a quiet, cunning ninja that was silently plotting [...]

Andrew Bynum heard the roar from hundreds of Philadelphia 76ers fans chanting his name the moment he stepped into the National Constitution Center.
No wonder he wants to stick around.
Bynum says about Philadelphia, he's ''leaning toward making this my home.'' That brought even louder cheers from an event that was more pep rally than press conference.
This is not news to anyone, but the Los Angeles Lakers have one of the richest histories in the NBA. They took a big step in making sure that history continued when they traded for Dwight Howard and Steve Nash.
They also made sure that the richest payroll in basketball got richer.
As Larry Coon explained to ESPN, the difference between doing this trade now and doing it during the...
Howard is all smiles now that he’s out of Orlando
Well, the NBA off-season dust has settled and most of the moving parts have come to rest. Although I wouldn’t exactly call this summer a power shift, I would say that the past couple months of player movements have altered the course of multiple NBA franchises. With that in mind, here’s a couple of winners and losers of this...
When the Dwight Howard saga came to a merciful end last Friday after his trade to the Lakers, NBA fans in small markets rolled their collective eyes, and settled in for another big market championship that will almost assuredly take place next June. Blazers fans were in the mix, and it was made more painful that their bitter rivals to the south once again reaped the rewards of an...
Andrew Bynum was asked at his press conference on how he felt on being compared to Moses Malone and his general outlook on this season being a central cog and first-look option on the floor for the Philadelphia 76ers. He answered simply, "There's pressure, but pressure makes diamonds".
The scene was electrifying as Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson stepped on stage...
One of the funnier moments from this past Olympics was the McKayla is not impressed phenomenon. It even has it's own website. A silver medal doesn't impress the young gymnast and apparently neither does the Lakers trade for Dwight Howard. KG of course is also not impressed with L.A.'s new clown.

The fine folks at Sports Will Rock You have produced another parody gem. This time they are parodying Bob Seger’s Night Moves with Dwight Howard and the entire DwightMare shenanigans ranging from not wanting to be in Orlando, to the Stan Van Gundy debacle, and all the way to the trade to Los Angeles. You may [...]
Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum has decided to voyage to Germany in September to have the identical non-surgical knee treatment that Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill and Alex Rodriguez have undergone in the recent past. It is unknown whether Bynum, who … Continue reading →
In Wednesday’s much anticipated press conference, the newest Sixers, Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, were officially introduced. I’ve never seen a Sixers press conference like this, it was unbelievable. It was held at the Constitution Center and the place was filled up with die hard Sixers fans who gave Bynum and Richardson a fantastic reception. It was an introduction to...
There is still aftermath coming out of the Dwight Howard trade. Orlando is still picking up the pieces, introducing Arron Afflalo to the media Thursday as their rollout of the post-Dwight Howard team begins to take a murky shape.
The one guy many people wanted to hear from is the former coach, Stan Van Gundy. Generally, people want to hear from Van Gundy all the time because...
