The Brooklyn Nets may not have been able to land Dwight Howard (at least not yet), but they’re still confident that they’re better than the Knicks. At a recent pep rally of sorts, Joe Johnson declared his squad the best in The Big Apple, and Billy King described his newly-formed backcourt tandem as the finest in the league.
Meaningless braggadocio? Yeah, but sports are about competition, and since we can’t play ’til November we may as well yap about it in July, right? Wrong, says Tyson Chandler. Via Newsday.com…

“Ive heard a little bit, but I think its foolish,” Chandler said before today’s Team USA’s practice at George Washington University. “The Nets are just coming together. I thin

Newest Net Joe Johnson was recently asked which New York team is better, and the 11-year veteran didn’t take long to respond. “Definitely Nets,” Johnson said. “Brooklyn Nets.”
It wasn’t long before someone asked Carmelo Anthony his thoughts on Johnson’s remark, but he wasn’t threatened by the “trash talk” saying, “ we’ll ready for the challenge“. ...
Oh, Dwight. Dwight Dwight Dwight. When are you ever gonna learn to just keep your mouth shut? Earlier today, Dwight Howard took to twitter to vent about how the Magic have treated him. He didn’t tweet these thoughts to the general public, but rather via Direct Message, a private messaging feature. I guess Dwight’s thinking [...]
The Lakers and Magic have rekindled talks that would send center Dwight Howard to Los Angeles, Yahoo Sports reports.

This isn’t a news breaking story — well, kinda — but in light of Dwight Howard, reportedly, saying he will sit out of all of next season if he is not traded, I thought these DM’s a Orlando fan going by the handle @MagicMarkee released interesting.

Screen capping is becoming a danger zone for unsuspecting professional athletes. First we had Amar’e Stoudemire calling a fan a derrogatory slur in a Twitter direct message that the fan revealed to the masses. Now we have a similar case, with Magic fan Markee Randolph (@MagicMarkee) ”leaking” a rant Dwight Howard sent him going off on the [...]
Apparently, Dwight Howard is cool enough with one of his Twitter followers that he sent a series of direct messages to the guy via his account.
The information he shared offers us enough information to know that Howard is the misguided piece of work many have been thinking he is.
Catch the tweets after you advance the ball.

It started off pretty shaky at the Verizon Center last night as Team USA just couldn't get it together. The men's basketball squad was down by 10 at the end of the first quarter and it appeared as if the team just could not get in sync.
Injuries to Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin and Chris Bosh have left the team with some gaping holes in the big-man department, but if this...
The Houston Rockets should never go anywhere and gamble… EVER. Recently the Rockets tried to out smart their fellow NBA teams by offering some sneaky contracts to players. Their thoughts were to try and lock up these individuals so that the franchises couldn’t be able to be major players in the 2013 free agency. This free agency will feature certain players like Chris Paul, Andrew...
Just a short time ago, the New York Knicks have reportedly declined their chance to match the Houston Rockets offer of 3 years, 25 million dollar deal for the Harvard grad. The Knicks decided to let Lin go and take their money somewhere else which shows that they believe the roster they have is good enough without him.
