But he still appears to be missing the point: It was hell for everyone else, Dwight, and no one really cares if it bothered you.

Could Magic be too average for own good?

For the uninitiated among us, lets set the record straight: New Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigans most critical misstep this summer was not merely the act of trading franchise center Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers. After all, it was plain to see that the Howard-Magic relationship had fallen into such a state of disrepair, the cloud hanging over the team growing...

Big Baby ready for starring role

Last year when Dwight Howard went down with a back injury, Glen Davis really stepped up in his absence. Davis’ numbers went up and he averaged 19 points a game in the Magic’s first round playoff loss to the Indiana Pacers.

NBA's Western Conference hard to figure

MINNEAPOLIS In June, a fake Twitter account pretending to be a credible NBA beat writer tweeted that a deal sending Dwight Howard to the Lakers was done. The Internet exploded for a quick second before everyone took a closer look and realized they'd been royally duped. It was a lesson in caution and a weird example of the efficacy (or inefficacy, depending on how you look at...

Magic Day Video: Darrel Armstrong with the steal and dunk

I had to consult with Crossover's second in command, Phillip Rossman-Reich, for the video for Orlando Magic day. Apparently, former Magic guard Darrel Armstrong is adored in Magic nation. Yeah, who knew? But as Phil told me the reasons why Darrel is so loved is because of his heart and hustle. Something the 2012-13 Magic squad is going to need considering the team is left in...

Lakers or Fakers. Is it Championship or Bust in LA?

The Black Mamba told Beto Duran that he’ll just have to wait and see how his foot feels after shootaround. But that there’s an 85% chance he’ll be on the floor. My money says there’s a 1000% Kobe will be playing tonight, he has to show Dwight Howard how it’s down in LA.

JbSmooth84.com Brooklyn Nets 2012-2013 Preview

Now that the drama of trading for Dwight Howard is over, the Nets can focus on trying to become a legit contender in the East. They traded for Joe Johnson to pair with Deron Williams which instantly gives them one of the top 5 back courts in the NBA. If Brook Lopez can stay healthy and build off of his 19 points and 4 rebounds average for his career he could give the Nets a valid...

Thoughts from an Educated Clippers Fan

As a Clipper fan I take great pride in the fact that my once small market Clippers are finally capable of competing with the large market teams in the league, such as the Lakers and Heat. For the past three seasons the Clippers have been slowly and methodically building a roster with the potential to make a deep playoff run. The motto is simple: we have our superstars (Paul &...
