That NBA Lottery Pick:
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a story about Lakers center Dwight Howard and NBA analyst Shaquille O'Neal feuding after comments made about Howard.It looks like that Howard isn't the only center that isn't happy with Shaq these days, Knicks center Tyson Chandler has also taken issue with some of Shaq's recent statements that the two best centers in the NBA are Andrew Bynum and Robin Lopez:"I was watching 'SportsCenter' this morning, eating breakfast in the team lounge, and I was laughing at the whole thing," Chandler said. "I honestly think it's comical. I don't care about rankings."That's one individual's point of view. I know where I'm at. I know what my value is. And I know better I have to continue to get better."

The Lakers haven't provided a firm timetable on when he will play. But Howard has maintained throughout the last week in training camp that he won&...
TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE
Kobe Bryant, admitting that it proved effective for both himself and Shaq, suggested that new teammate Dwight Howard "just needs to bring it out."
Dwight Howard likes to have a fun. He posted this photo of himself in Laker purple with the caption, Kid DYNOMITE! Lots if happening on the Dwight front, he’s been cleared for limited contact in 5-on-5 practice and he’s also claiming that Kobe has been his secret guru for the last few years. Ok Dwight… [...]
The Lakers began their march into the ’12- ’13 NBA season one Sunday with their first preseason game in Fresno, Ca. against the Golden State Warriors. Dwight Howard was in attendance but didn’t touch the hardwood. He sat down for an interview during the second quarter and one of the interesting items to come out [...]
Dwight Howard has not been given the green light yet from the Lakers.
Word is, he also wants to change his name from “Superman”, to “Iron Man”. Above is Dwight at last night’s preseason game, which the Lakers lost.
I know Shaq is all for it but Iron Man is kinda wack. How bout “Poser Boy”?
I kid, sorta. All I want is for Dwight to play with hunger this season. It’s about damn time already.
Orlando Magic’s T-Pain Big Baby Davis has been working his tail off to replace the production of Dwight Howard. T-Pain Davis recorded a little hip-hop rap jam aptly named Big Baby Gon‘ Turn It Up. It’s really a great terrible song and has no business being listened to more than once zero times. But, I digress…
Think T Pain’s voice changer + an average yet severely...

Times: Lakers say Dwight Howard has been cleared for full court [...]
Kobe Bryant has a complete a-hole persona on the floor. He bosses his teammates around, takes control of games when he feels he needs to, and he calls out teammates on a regular basis. It’s all part of that “killer instinct” so many says he has. Bryant believes Howard has a lot of great tools, but he wants the young center to be more of an a-hole like him. “Shaq was a goofball...
If youre the Brooklyn Nets, it could be worse. A lot worse.
No, you didnt land Dwight Howard -- and Howard made it pretty clear he wanted to play for your team. That couldve been a real downer.
But rather than sit around and sulk, the Nets did the next best thing: They moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn.
OK, thats a joke.
What really mattered was how the Nets approached the offseason...
Deron Williams grew impatient waiting for the Nets to acquire Dwight Howard.
