Locked on Hawks podcast: Bidding farewell to Paul Millsap trade rumors

Episode 141 is here and it has a clear message. Good morning! Tuesday was a (much) needed off day for the Atlanta Hawks after a fun come-from-behind victory in Portland.

Game Preview: San Antonio Spurs at Orlando Magic

Game Preview: San Antonio Spurs at Orlando Magic

Playing their fourth game in six nights, the Spurs head to Orlando to face the Magic. Orlando is in a state of free-fall right now — which is almost impressive for a franchise that hasn’t won more than 35 games in a season since Dwight Howard left for Los Angeles in 2012. Five years later, the franchise is still a mess. The venerable Stan Van Gundy is also gone, prying open a revolving door of prospective coaches hoping to take the Magic out of the NBA doldrums and back to its height of success, culminating with Finals appearances in 1995 and 2009. It hasn’t worked thus...

The Hawks Starting Front Court and Roster Decisions to Come

The Hawks Starting Front Court and Roster Decisions to Come

The Hawks current starting front court is made up of veteran players the youngest of whom, Dwight Howard (31 y, 62d), has played in the most games of the three by margins of 110 games (Paul Millsap) and 205 games (Thabo Sefolosha). There has been much trade speculation surrounding Millsap and as he is very likely to be heading into unrestricted free agency after this season (he has player option for next season that he is almost certain to decline). While the trade speculation regarding Sefolosha (also an unrestricted free agent after this season) has not gotten as much attention, it seems...

No hard feelings: Dwight Howard says he’s happy for the Rockets

Even happier after sweeping the season series against them. The end of Dwight Howard's Houston Rockets career was pretty rough. The team massively underperformed, and lots of drama and stories came out throughout the year about the discord between Houston's biggest superstars. When the offseason came, Howard chose to take his talents elsewhere. No one in Houston begged him to stay Thursday night, Howard came back to Houston for the first time since the split, and the Rockets honored him with a tribute video during an early timeout. The video touched the big man who said this was the first...
