Dwight Howard still likes the Atlanta Hawks as NBA’s best

The Warriors might have made a convincing statement with their latest blowout win, their second in the past three games when playing the Rockets, but Rockets center Dwight Howard was not ready to call them the league’s best team. “I think the Hawks are the best team,” Howard said. “They have the best record, right?” […]

Dwight Howard always a tall order for Andrew Bogut

Andrew Bogut doesn’t bother himself with political correctness. So, when the Warriors’ center was asked if he looked forward to Wednesday’s matchup with Houston’s Dwight Howard, who missed the teams’ first two meetings this season, Bogut couldn’t help but be honest. “I’d rather him be out, obviously, because he brings a lot to their team, but at the same time, we’re confident that if we play our game, we can win,” Bogut said Tuesday. That’s how it unfolded Saturday when Howard scored 23 points and had 10 rebounds but the...

Rockets crush Pacers behind James Harden's 45 points

The two superstars were all the Rockets needed to rout Indiana. On a night the Houston Rockets couldn't get anything going outside of their two stars, James Harden and Dwight Howard were all they needed. The Rockets won, 110-98, behind 45 points from Harden on 12-18 shooting and 14 points and 17 rebounds from Howard. Donatas Motiejunas also played well, with 10 points, 9 boards and 4 assists, but lineups focused on him and Josh Smith when D12 and The Beard were on the bench played atrociously. Howard carried the Rockets in the first half. He went into the locker room at the break with 9...

Dwight Howard and the "Soft" Narrative

Is Dwight Howard soft? What qualifies as soft? Is his personality out of alignment with the NBA or even society at large? When looking, objectively, at the context of the critiques of Howard's character we see something much uglier than Howard's lack of "edge." Long time no chat, TDS. I know the topic has slowly become less relevant since the Nets/Rockets game is now nearly a week old but it's better late than never, no? Yes, it's worth discussing and it's worth putting in perspective whether or not Dwight Howard is "soft" or not. The national media does its posturing and its speculation...
