As good as he is right now, he’s still very raw. But he has all the tools so I’m like a kid in a candy store.
Hakeem Olajuwon, on his new protégé, Dwight Howard. When asked for comment, Dwight said, “A candy store? Where?!?”
Dwight Howard and James Harden are big Ronnie James Dio fans.

The Lakers are putting up billboards around LA encouraging Dwight Howard to re-sign with them, and promoting the hashtag #stayD12 on Twitter. How is that working out for them so far?



The #stayD12 replies range from “Good riddance, Dwight” to “Fire D’Antoni” to “Get rid of Dwight and fire D’Antoni, too.” Too bad they can’t just re-sign Andrew Bynum, but they’re capped out, and he’s not visiting teams until his bowling league’s playoffs are over anyway.

Congratulations to Dwight Howard on his third-team All-NBA selection! We knew he’d bring the hardware to Los Angeles!

I didn’t come up with Superman, I won’t get upset.
— Dwight Howard, graciously acknowledging Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, after Chris Duhon called Metta World Peace “Superman.” Shaq is still considering legal action against Duhon, however.
I will remember this game. I will remember that shot. He said he wasn’t trying to do it. You can look at the play and see it for yourself. I will take care of it later.
— Dwight Howard, complaining about David Lee’s elbow. This quote guarantees that there will be no retaliation in the teams’ next meeting, because Dwight Howard always does the opposite of what he says.
Here’s Harrison Barnes of the Golden State Warriors modeling the team’s new alternate jersey - with sleeves! This is another questionable ambitious Adidas design, after this year’s special Christmas uniforms. The material is supposed to be 25% lighter, but the combination of t-shirt top and pinstriped shorts gives the whole ensemble a real “laundry day” look. Perhaps this new uniform is designed to appeal to 2013 free agent Dwight Howard, who loves sleeves of all kinds, and might take the court with a full Spandex cat burglar outfit under his jersey by the end of the year. Or, it will be a nice transition for undershirt-loving college kids on their way to the NBA. Patrick Ewing would have loved this jersey, and the added sweat absorption might have changed the course of his entire career.

Personally, I think they traded No. 1 for No. 2.

What’s more embarrassing - the Lakers’ 0-3 start, or Dwight Howard’s purple dumb purple arm sleeves? Trick question, the truly embarrassing sleeves will come later, once Dwight debuts his Christian Audigier-designed skull-print sleeves at the All-Star break.
