You know the drill by now.
Each day more and more of Shaq’s Uncut book comes out and either you think he is dropping ether or he is being messy. Either way it is interesting.
Today’s topic is Dwight Howard.
Dwight Howard and I don’t really have a relationship. I don’t like people who lack originality. The whole Superman thing doesn’t work for me. … It’s kind of weird how he’s handled his career. He wants to be Superman. They’re talking about him going to L.A. when his contract is up. When I go back to the Orlando area in the offseason, they are doing all the same things for him they did for me. But that’s a mistake. He’s Dwight Howard. He’s not Shaq. Be your own man. Create your own brand.
I do feel for him sometimes. It’s all on his shoulders, just like it was all on mine, and when he doesn’t get it done he’s the one standing there trying to explain, even though he put up huge numbers. Nothing changes in the NBA. It’s not always fun being Dwight Howard, but if you call yourself The Man, well, you gotta deal with it.
It seems to be a little childish to be upset about a nickname. I know it is a little deeper than that, but there definitely seems to be a hint of jealousy there.
Maybe cause the ladies swoon over Dwight without him having to stalk them?

The machine known as Dwight Howard is ready to prove he has the highest reach in the NBA!
In ESPN’s latest episode of Sports Science, Dwight challenges the NBA’s highest documented reach record which was previously held by none other than Shaquille O’Neal. The Shaq record was marked at 12′-5″, which means that Dwight would have to generate a vertical leap of at least 39...

Shoe sales might be suffering during the lockout, but that won't stop shoe companies from releasing new shoes and selling them to the masses.

Editor's note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, NESN.com will help fill the void by posting a dunk video every day until the lockout ends.

Dwight Howard’s Newest...
Last week, Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard announced on Twitter that Shaquille O’Neal was invited to his charity game. That news seemed odd because, as far as most of us know, Howard and Shaq aren’t friends off the court.
Dwight Howard hears your concerns, especially you Magic fans out there. He appreciates the Stay Dwight campaign, and doesn’t seem like he really wants to leave. It’s as if he’s slowly being pulled away towards the big city – L.A. or New York. He wants to show he cares. So come Nov. 13, he’ll be [...]
Note: since there is no basketball, and we were supposed to have games, we will imagine there were games. With the help of AccuScore, Strat-o-Matic and Basketball Prospectus, we can imagine an NBA season even if there is not one actually going on. So with that, we begin to imagine the 2011-12 season.
One thing is certain after one game. The Magic need Dwight Howard on the floor...
Penny Hardaway, Vince Carter, Steve Francis, Gilbert Arenas among players participatingMagic star Dwight Howard released a partial list of players who will be participating in his Nov. 13 game at University of Central Florida Arena, the D12 Foundation All Star Charity Basketball Game:
When the NBA released its schedule for the 2011-12 season back in July, we all got excited. I mean, who wouldn’t? A new season means a fresh start before any true delusions of grandeur set in. “Believe me, the T-Wolves could go 82-0!” “Why wouldn’t the Magic trade us Dwight Howard for Theo Ratliff?!” “I [...]
Frustrated over the state of labor negotiations, dozens of NBA players including Dwyane Wade and Dwight Howard are prepared to push for decertification of the players association next week, according to multiple reports Thursday night.
