Dwight Howard:

    The Los Angeles Lakers triumphed the WCF and booked a ticket to the NBA finals for the first time in a decade. The locker room was filled with emotions after the Game 5 victory against the Nuggets. For Dwight Howard and his son, advancing to the finals means more than anything in this world.  Dwight Howard has been lighting up the NBA Bubble with his antics both on and off the court. Howard is always a joyous personality to be around. But before the NBA’s restart, he endured a personal and tragic loss.  Dwight has a six-year-old son, David, whose mother Melissa Rios passed away due to an epileptic seizure in March. Ever since, he found it extremely hard to...
    The Los Angeles Lakers have a chance to close out the series after taking a 3-1 lead vs the Nuggets. Heading into Game 4, they were completely outplayed by Denver in the previous game. But one change from head coach Frank Vogel turned the tides in LA’s favor. It was the addition of veteran Dwight Howard to the starting lineup. Howard was getting into constant foul trouble in the first three games, but Game 4 was different. Dwight committed only 2 fouls in the entire game. He also grabbed 11 rebounds, including 6 offensive boards! The team fed off his energy and defeated the Nuggets with a score of 114-108. Before Game 5 matchup, Howard shared his views on how...
    Rajon Rondo and Dwight Howard have played surprisingly important roles for the Lakers. But for most fans, they are the same prickly personalities they’ve always been. Every year there is a team with a former All-Star or two that has inflated expectations from name recognition. It’s why signing Carmelo Anthony or Derrick Rose is lauded as a smart move when, well, it hasn’t really been much of a needle mover for quite a few years (though I am compelled to admit that Anthony did exceed my personal expectations as a Blazer this year). These are teams that would have been nearly unstoppable if each player was in their prime, but are at the time of their actual existence, a bit...
    The Western Conference Finals have been a delight to watch so far. While the Lakers currently hold a 2-1 lead over the Nuggets, that could all change in Game 4. After going down 2-0 initially, the Nuggets were breathtaking in Game 3 with Jokic and Murray’s efforts. But for the Lakers, the situation is getting slowly out of hand. If they lose Game 4, Denver will have the momentum moving forward. Head coach Frank Vogel needs a solution to stop the Nuggets’ momentum, and the answer could be none other than Dwight Howard. Howard played an excellent role in the first game of the series, but ever since he is causing more trouble for them than helping them. In...
    Getty Los Angeles Lakers sideline. Outside of a big run in the fourth quarter, the Los Angeles Lakers played very poorly in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Denver Nuggets. A major problem they had is that they got killed when it came to rebounding. JaVale McGee has mostly been in the starting lineup all year but he hasn’t been playing his best basketball this series. On the other hand, Dwight Howard has played well off the bench. In an effort to turn the series back around, the Lakers have decided to insert Howard into the starting lineup, per NBA.com’s Mike Trudell. Dwight Howard will start at center tonight, joining LeBron, AD, KCP and Green...

    Getty Dwight Howard guarding Nikola Jokic. Nikola Jokic was almost able to single handily lead the Denver Nuggets to a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. They couldn’t find an answer for him on defense. If it wasn’t for Anthony Davis hitting a game-winning 3, Jokic would’ve been credited with the game-winner. Despite his excellent game, JaVale McGee and Dwight Howard were relentless in their trash talk of the big man. According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, McGee and Howard were all over Jokic when he’d guard Davis: Late in the first quarter of the Lakers’ Western Conference finals Game 2 victory on Sunday, Davis walked to his post spot near the Lakers’ bench while Denver Nuggets...

    Getty Kyle Kuzma & Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. Over the season, the Los Angeles Lakers have formed a tight-knit group of players. Usually, teams that haven’t been together very long don’t get along as well as this team does. They don’t even like it when the media is unfairly criticizing their teammates. On ESPN’s First Take, Stephen A. Smith was talking about Clippers star Paul George and said he is “in danger of becoming the second-coming of Dwight Howard” due to their recent loss. Those comments didn’t sit well with Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma and he clapped back at Smith. He went to the finals. And 3peated defense player of the year nobody just doing that...
    It wasn’t always a sure thing that Dwight Howard would join the Lakers in the NBA’s bubble. More than two months in, he doesn’t exactly sound like a fan of it — other than the Lakers being eight wins away from what they came for: a championship. “There’s really nothing to do. If I can be honest with you,” Howard told reporters Wednesday in his first public comments in almost two months, according to the OC Register. “There’s nowhere to go there’s no way to release anything, any feeling that you might have. It’s just like we’re stuck.” It likely hasn’t helped that the 34-year-old Howard hasn’t played a whole lot, appearing in seven of the Lakers’ 10 games and...

    Getty Dwight Howard, not long for Lakers? It was little surprise that Lakers center Dwight Howard did not play much in the NBA’s conference semifinals against the Rockets, a series L.A. won in five games. Houston plays an extreme version of small-ball, going without a center and barely with any players who would qualify, size-wise, as power forwards. There was never going to be a consistent place in the Lakers rotation for Howard, at 6-10 and a pure center his entire career, against Houston. He played 11 minutes in the first game and four minutes in the final game but saw no cation in Games 2-4. We might not see too much of Howard in the remainder of...
    With Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard set to enter free agency in the 2020 offseason, a recent article suggested that there are a few teams, including the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Clippers, and Toronto Raptors, who could potentially benefit from signing the eight-time All-Star. As explained on Monday morning by Bleacher Report, Howard is currently in the middle of a “classic late-career renaissance” despite the fact that he is seeing the fewest minutes in his career and playing alongside a number of similarly “mercurial” personalities. With his second run with the Lakers seemingly going much better than his one-year stint in 2012-13, the 34-year-old has been quite productive off the bench, registering his highest blocks-per-36-minutes numbers in seven seasons...

    Getty Las Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard. Dwight Howard used to be considered one of the five best players in the NBA so his new role with the Los Angeles Lakers is certainly different. However, he’s taken the changes in stride and has become one of their most important role players. Despite the Lakers blowing out the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night, Howard played with a lot of passion when he was brought into the game. This led to him getting into a heated exchange with Carmelo Anthony in the second quarter.

    Getty Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. It was just last week when Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard was “snitched” on for getting caught not wearing a mask while walking around the NBA bubble campus. Right now, the league is very committed to keeping every player free of COVID-19 and though Howard said he wasn’t around anybody, the NBA would rather be safe than sorry. Even when players are talking to the media virtually, they are now supposed to wear masks. This led to Portland Trail Blazers star CJ McCollum to take an unprompted jab at the Lakers big man. “I’m wearing the mask and no one is around me,” McCollum said, per ESPN’s Royce Young....

During the almost hour-long video, he made his feelings clear about mask-wearing and vaccines in the age of COVID-19. Like the members of the 22 teams that are sequestered in Walt Disney World’s Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando, Florida, Howard is expected to follow the 133-page coronavirus protocol which includes mask-wearing, social distancing, and testing.
