Found March 07, 2012 on Rumors and Rants:
The Orlando Magic are going to do whatever they can to pacify center Dwight Howard over the next week or so, in an attempt to convince him to stay in town for the foreseeable future. That may include some moves before the NBA’s March 15 trade deadline. One player the Magic have discussed trading for is Golden State’s Monta Ellis. The 26-year-old guard would certainly create an intriguing inside-outside paring with Howard, as he has shown the ability to be a prolific – albeit streaky – scorer. Ellis is a guy that Howard has claimed he’d like to play with, and the two years and $22 million that remain on his contract are certainly affordable by today’s NBA standards. The problem for Orlando would be enticing the Warriors to part with the best player on their roster, after all the Magic aren’t exactly flush with intriguing young talent. In fact, a Golden State source told The Oakland Tribune that the team wouldn’t trade Ellis unless it got an All-Star (or someone of that caliber) in ...

Dwight Howard Monster Dunk Over Joakim Noah

Dwight Howard lived up to his nickname “Superman” last night as he caught a sick alley-oop from Jameer Nelson.

If you’re a Bulls fan (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast) The Suns pulled off a win against the Mavericks and not quite as surprisingly, the Magic beat the Bulls. Given Dwight Howard’s performance, and those from the Bulls, it’s pretty obvious why the Bulls couldn’t pull it out. It’s not quite as intuitive when looking at the Mavericks box score, but they did start Ian Mahinmi...
