Dwight Howard and Shaquille O’Neal have never had anything nice to say about one another. Comparisons between the two because of their career paths come naturally, and neither big man seems to like being compared to his counterpart. Most recently, Shaq called Howard out for not being mean enough on the floor. “He’s too nice,” [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
So far Dwight Howard has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Dallas Mavericks.
But now the prized free agent is reportedly interested in joining the Spurs, Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld.com reports on Thursday.
Is this just a case of wanting to play for the best team, or does Howard actually see himself playing at the AT&T Center in San Antonio?
This isn’t a breaking news story, we reported a couple of weeks ago about a rumor that Dwight and CP3 might be looking to play together.
You don’t have to be an insider to know this is a possibility, a remote possibility, but one that is out there. Chris Broussard’s sources are telling him discussions have been taking place between Howard and CP3.

The NBA season isn't even officially over and one of the main topics thus far has been this: where will Dwight Howard land in the offseason? The Lakers, Rockets, Mavericks, and even the Spurs are supposedly the places the star center is considering.
Howard probably doesn't even know where he will land, but former Laker star Magic Johnson has his own option where he should...
Shaquille O'Neal has criticized Dwight Howard in the past and did so again on Tuesday when he said the Los Angeles Lakers' big man has been too nice in his career and must stiffen up.
"He's too nice," O'Neal said. "I'm a connoisseur of giggling and playing and all that and making you laugh and playing with the fans, but when I cross that line,...
YOU DON'T SAY
Given his affiliation with the Lakers, it may come as a surprise to some that Magic Johnson implied that perhaps the Rockets are the best fit for Dwight Howard.
This is actually happening. Perceived as a "soft" big man, Dwight Howard will be voicing the character "Cold Turkey" in a movie about time-traveling turkeys.
When free agency begins on July 1, the most coveted free agents on the market, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul, reportedly want to play together and hope to land on the same team next season.
According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com:
Chris Paul and Dwight Howard have been in consistent contact recently about the possibility of becoming teammates next season, according to league sources...
It’s not often that I get the opportunity to call Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard, a talking turkey, but he will be lending his voice to a talking turkey in an upcoming animated motion picture.
The movie is called “Free Birds” which will be produced by Relativity/Reel FX and D-12 will voice a time traveling bird:
Howard plays Cold Turkey, one of the Wild Turkeys that...
Yesterday on ESPNLA, Shaq called his MiniMe, er Dwight Howard, “too nice.” It’s probably the best way anyone’s called him annoying. “I’m a connoisseur of giggling and playing and all that and making you laugh and playing with the fans, but when I cross that line, I’m ready to tear your face off…He’s just too nice.”
I gotta agree. Less nice Dwight. More hermit...
Dwight Howard and Chris Paul have been in contact with each other in an effort to play for the same team next season, according to sources.
The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers do not have the available cap space to allow Howard and Paul to team up, which would necessitate an unlikely trade scenario.
The Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks all have cap...
I always felt the chances of Dwight Howard and Chris Paul wanting to play together were extremely low, but if you trust Chris Broussard and his sources I have apparently been wrong. Sources: CP3 & D12 hope to team up next season. Have been texting back & forth to figure it out. Story up soon [...]

Now before you say it, I know what you're thinking..it's Broussard. But the guy seems to be on top of the Doc story, and at the very least...
The NBA has fined three teams for tampering, according to an internal memo.
The Atlanta Hawks are one of the three teams, as the marketing department sent out a letter to season ticket holders mentioning Chris Paul and Dwight Howard by name.
The identity of the other two teams and the amount of the fine has not been disclosed.
The Atlanta Hawks and two other teams have been fined an undisclosed amount by the NBA for tampering.
A league spokesman says a memo was sent to teams informing them of the penalties, but didn't say which clubs were punished or provide the amount of the fines.
However, the Hawks say Monday they were one of them, saying that they ''fully understand and respect the NBA...
