Remember that time Dwight Howard went to China, played Pop-A-Shot against an Asian kid and had to start cheating because he was losing so badly? This girl would’ve made him retire from the NBA. Behold, the master of Pop-A-Shot. She rapid-fires in her shots and makes them all, assumedly winning every prize in the building from the 10 ticket football-shaped mini-eraser to the 80,000,000 ticket XBOX 360 or whatever. It’s amazing. Here’s the clip: Let’s go to the Internet. JUDGES? Nice try, Obama. My favorite thing about the clip is actually the bystanders captured on film during the performance, like the guy at 0:13 who discourteously walks in front of the camera like someone’s NOT redefining arcade athleticism and the woman right after him who has clearly been doing cocaine. Maybe this isn’t an arcade at all, and is some weird training facility for drugged-up Super Athletes. I’m gonna have that machine’s noise in my head for the rest of the day. BOBBEH, BOBBEH, BOBBEH, HE...

Prior to last season, the Los Angeles Lakers were one of the better offensive teams in the NBA. Then they got Dwight Howard. The Lakers were the preseason favorite to win the Western Conference, but things went south in a hurry. Part of the reason for that was they couldn’t score. During a recent interview […]
After making the deal in the off-season for Dwight Howard the spotlight on the Houston Rockets wet from flickering to full-on, bright as day high beams--and rightfully so. D12 was supposed to be the future in Los Angeles, but is now expected to be the man in Houston.
So after game No. 1 was he worth the hype?
Howard never really meshed wit the fans in LA...
HOUSTON (AP) -- Dwight Howard had 17 points and a career-high-tying 26 rebounds in his Houston debut, James Harden added 21 points and the Rockets cruised to a 96-83 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.
Howard spurned the Lakers to sign an 88 million deal with Houston, joining Harden and a team that made the playoffs last season for the first time since 2009.
I am not a big fan of Dwight Howard but I feel that his trade to the Houston Rockets was the best move for him. He had a terrible season with the Lakers last year, riddled by injuries, struggling with his shot, not getting into a good rhythm and having ego issues with Kobe Bryant. ...The post Dwight Howard will be at his best this season appeared first on The League News.
HOUSTON– Maybe a change of scenery and fresh bill of health is exactly what Dwight Howard needed. Howard made his Houston Rockets debut as they opened their season at home against the Charlotte Bobcats, and Bobcats or no Bobcats, Howard was ready to play. Dropping 17 points, and tying a career-high with 26 rebounds, Howard […]

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban lost the recruiting battle for Dwight Howard to the Houston Rockets, but Cuban believes that's because the big man made a bad decision.
"Obviously, he made a mistake in judgment," Cuban said Thursday, a little more than 24 hours before the Mavericks play Howard's Rockets in Houston. "Do I blame him? No, that's what young kids...

Some analysts gave attention the offseason acquisitions of the Los Angeles Lakers this summer. However, due to the buzz and the fuzz that followed Dwight Howard’s decision to depart from the City of Angeles and join James Harden and the Houston Rockets, most of the Lakers’ additions passed under the radar. Nonetheless, LA managed to […]

Doc Rivers will make his coaching debut with the Los Angeles Clippers tonight, and later this week Dwight Howard begins his title quest with […]

Crappy Facebook update, probably
I completely made that quote up, but oddly, if the Orlando Magic let an emo 17 year old run their social media accounts, this update would get dozens of likes. The Dwight Howard Saga of 2012 was unnecessary, immature, and ended up downright weird. We couldn'...

The Los Angeles Lakers entered this season with a lot less expectations than they faced last season. Dwight Howard is in Houston, Metta World Peace is in New York and Kobe Bryant is still recovering from his injury. Many people were just hoping the Clippers would not embarrass the Lakers on opening night. A starting line-up that featured a player that did not...
