Lakers head coach Mike Brown reacted the same way most of the team's fans probably did upon hearing the news that Dwight Howard was L.A. bound. "I got a little excited. I tried to jump up and down, but my mind was telling me to do something that my body wouldn't allow me to do. I almost pulled my hamstring sitting down," Brown told "I don't know if that's ever happened to anybody, but I was so excited that my leg tensed up. I almost tore my hamstring. So I got up slowly and gave [general manager Mitch Kupchak]...

Dwight Howard Embraces Legacy of Every Great Lakers Center Except Clyde Lovellette on Facebook (Photo)

Now that he is a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, Dwight Howard wants to make people forget that purple and gold was not his first choice while he was orchestrating his exit from the Orlando Magic.

Jordan Hill Over Dwight Howard

That’s the plan for now at least. Although the Lakers have acquired D12, arguably the most dominant center in the league, he still won’t be able to play until his back is completely healed. “If I’m ready for opening night, then I’ll be there, but I’m not going to rush it. A back is very serious, so I want to take my time and make sure I get back 100 percent, because I...

Jeremy Lin And Dwight Howard Pursuit Shows Daryl Morey Has Lost His Beautiful Mind

These are strange times in the NBA. Ray Allen has gone from Jesus Shuttlesworth to Judas in the eyes of Celtics fans, Steve Nash is a Laker.

Keep in mind, that sentence was written by someone who is the nonfiction equivalent of Chicken Little.

The NBA’s top 5 duos

I once wrote a piece on the NBA’s top 5 duos of all-time and it seemed to spark a nice buzz for debate. Readers love to skim through lists and provide their own sense of opinion, especially when you’re writing about talented combos, such as Magic and Kareem, or Stockton and Malone. The debates can become heated and ideas will bounce back and forth. #5:Carmelo Anthony/Amar...
