DWIGHT HOWARD RUMORS

Dwight Howard tried recruiting Jameer Nelson to Houston

Jameer Nelson balanced finances and winning in free agency. Dwight Howard made multiple calls recruiting Nelson to Houston, sources say. — Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 24, 2014 As Steven LeBron of DIME Magazine recalls, there was some pretty ugly history between Howard and his former teammate after Howard arrived in Houston and called the 2009 Magic a team of players “nobody...

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. The Rockets not only failed to land targeted players such as Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony, but also managed to let budding prospect, Chandler Parsons, sign and offer sheet with the Dallas Mavericks, without matching the three-year, $46 million offer. Sure, the Rockets...

Dwight Howard Says He’s Best C & Harden Best SG, Don’t Need Parsons

One would think if you had the best Center in the league and best shooting guard, you could make it out of the 1st round of the playoffs, but I digress. Dwight Howard doesn’t seem that overly concerned with Chandler Parsons taking his talents to Dallas. When asked how Parsons departure would affect the team here is what he had to say. “It won’t affect us at all,” Howard said...

Phil Jackson: Dwight Howard left Lakers because of Kobe

Dwight Howard Apologizes for #FreePalestine Tweet

Dwight Howard sent out an odd Tweet today (by odd we mean not something you would expect from him), which had the hashtag “FreePalestine” in the body. Within a few minutes the Tweet had over 2,000 retweets, and was captured by plenty of folks on the Internet. It also drew some very negative criticism on Twitter, as one would imagine. Here is a screengrab of the Tweet before...

Dwight Howard apologizes for tweet about Palestine

At least Dwight didn’t say he was hacked. I am not sure why he is apologizing for though, if that is how he feels, that is how he feels. I can see apologize for making a political comment he didn’t mean to make, but how can you offend someone with your belief? It would be like apologizing for being Catholic to a Jewish person, you can’t control how others feel about an issue...

Rapper Slim Thug recruits 'Melo to Rockets

Last summer, Slim Thug did an excellent job listing the “lifestyle benefits” to Dwight Howard when the Rockets were on the short list of teams Howard was interested in signing to.  In the 2014 off-season, he’s back at for Carmelo Anthony. Slim tweeted to Carmelo and his wife, Lala, the benefits of Houston. Including reasons why Chicago isn’t a good option. @carmeloanthony...
