Beyond The Buzzer:
Dwight Howard made it clear that he wanted a trade to one of three teams during last season’s Dwightmare saga – the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers, or Dallas Mavericks. While the Houston Rockets were interested, Howard didn’t have the same interest and was not likely to re-sign with them. But things are different now. The new-look Rockets have just four players remaining from last season’s roster, and have done a good job building a young team that can compete for years to come. With the addition of Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik in the offseason, and the blockbuster deal that landed them James Harden, the Rockets have become a much more attractive destination, and according to sources, free-agent to be Dwight Howard is fully aware of what’s going on in Houston.
According to Chris Broussard, ESPN:
Of the Lakers’ three free-agent competitors, Houston appears to be the most favorable for Howard. Dallas is aging, and Howard is not keen on playing in his hometown of Atlanta. Houston, on th...

Dwight Howard said neither he or Kobe were doctors, so no one should be questioning his desire to play. There was one major problem with Dwight’s assessment of the situation the doctors cleared Dwight to play days ago.
Mike D’Antoni also informed us on @twcsportsnet that Dwight’s been cleared to play for awhile…tonight he just decided to play…

The Los Angeles Lakers secured a big win last night against the Brooklyn Nets. Without Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace, one would think that the team would be happy with the result of the game last night. Coach Mike D’antoni had other thoughts. With rumors floating that Mike D’antoni was not happy with [...]
In Dwight Howard's mind, the support level from his Los Angeles Lakers has been lacking.
The Los Angeles Lakers were already going to be without Dwight Howard Tuesday against the Brooklyn Nets. Now, they'll be without Metta World Peace, who will be serving a one-game suspension for Malice in the Palace II.
On Sunday, the b(r)a(w)ller formerly known as Ron Artest got tied up with Brandon Knight and proceeded to grab the Pistons guard by the neck and pop him in...
Dwight Howard wants to avoid anything resembling a repeat of his departure from the Magic last year.
The Lakers are an entertaining bunch.
Dwight Howard vs. Kobe Bryant is the closest we will get to Pacquiao vs. Mayweather. Kobe essentially said Dwight is a sensitive clown who needs to play hurt.
Here was Dwight reply to that courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk.
“That’s his opinion. That’s it. He’s not a doctor, I’m not a doctor.”’
“”I want to play, I mean, why wouldn’t...
One of the things that made Michael Jordan so great is he had a burning desire to be great. It was almost like an obsession. His competitive nature was legendary and something that not many could live up to.
Kobe Bryant shares this type of obsession, he wants Dwight Howard to have it as well, but Dwight isn’t wired that way. He’s wired in a more clownish way.
With that being...
This season has been a year of tribulation for the Lakers (22-26) and it doesn't look like it's stopping anytime soon. Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace will miss tonight's season series finale against the Brooklyn Nets (28-19), the team's 4th stop in this seemingly never-ending road trip.
Howard is still feeling a lot of soreness on his right shoulder after...
