Dwight Howard continues to burn all his bridges

You would think by now, Dwight Howard would know not to talk about the past, his past teammates or anything to the media other than the task at hand. After spending nearly two years saying the wrong things over and over again, Howard just cannot seem to get out of his own way. With Jameer Nelson on the market and available to sign, and Houston needing a point guard for cheap to...

In Defense of Daryl Morey

Daryl Morey made a mistake. So naturally, the solution is for the collective basketball world to jump down his throat faster than you can say, “Jeremy Lin and two draft picks to the Lakers.” Am I missing something here? Morey messed up this offseason. He gambled on Chris Bosh choosing a better basketball situation in Houston and lost. He allowed Chandler Parsons to become a...

James Harden's cornerstone quote belies what he's trying to accomplish

I want to start out by saying that I am a huge fan of James Harden's for a couple reasons. For starters, being an Arizona State University alumni I love that he's a Sun Devil and what he's done for the program. Not to mention, his game has always reminded me of Paul Pierce's due to his craftiness with the ball and ability to get separation on his jump shots off the...

Surprising place still selling Dwight Howard Lakers jerseys!

LAX airport is the third largest in the United States and also happens to be located in Los Angeles, which is, you guessed it, the same city as the Lakers. So the thought of them selling jerseys of Dwight Howard – who spurned them last summer for the Houston Rockets, is a bit surprising. I have a feeling these jerseys may need to be sent over to same countries the NFL sends the...

Harden praises himself, Howard, calls other Rockets 'role players'

It should come as no surprise that the Houston Rockets struck out big time (so far) in this year’s NBA Free Agency.

Sure, the Rockets...

Tony Dungy Says He’s Disagrees With Michael Sam’s Lifestyle (Video)

Many people disagree with Johnny Manziel’s lifestyle. I disagree with Dwight Howard not allowing his baby mamas all 8 of them not to speak in public they have children with him. DeSean Jackson’s perceived lifestyle is the reason he is with the Redskins not the Eagles now.
