Guess we no longer have to wonder if Dwight Howard really wants Stan Van Gundy fired. Because according Howard Beck of the New York Times, Van Gundy himself acknowledged to reporters that he knows that Howard has asked that he be fired.
Why coaches paint themselves in these types of corners we will never know. Granted, it may be true that John Calipara isn’t interested in coaching in the NBA at the moment. But as we all know, moments change very quickly. Calipari doesn’t need the money. He doesn’t need to prove he’s a great coach. But […]
When Dwight Howard decided to not opt out of his contract and return to the Magic next season, you knew that there was a price to be paid by someone. We had already heard rumblings of the desperate measures the Magic were prepared to take to keep him, so what you’re about to read shouldn’t […]
There’s just something about the Amway Center in Orlando that causes NBA players to forget how to stay off the ground when trying to guard the basketball. We’ve seen JJ Redick, not once, but twice end up on the floor while playing defense and now it’s Ryan Anderson’s turn. But unlike Redick’s trip to the […]

Mike Brown has turned into a benching machine lately. First, he benched Kobe Bryant on Sunday which he doesn’t regret one bit and last night, he unleashed his benching powers on Andrew Bynum. With 10:05 left in the 3rd quarter of the Lakers’ 104-101 win over the Warriors, Bynum found himself with the ball at […]
