Adrian Wojnarowski on the Dwight Howard situation. You should read the article, but the Cliff Notes version of it. Magic owners believe they can keep Howard, long term as long as they acquire talented pieces. Magic GM Otis Smith and coach Stan Van Gundy know that Howard is leaving and would want the team to make a deal to put an end to this long and drawn out process. Howard will sign with the New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets at the start of summer free agency.
So, ideally, the Magic should trade Howard to whatever team offers the best deal in return and it seems like the Nets don’t have a lot to offer in a trade and Howard could make more money if he just signed as a free agent.
Let’s talk free throws for a minute.
Last night Dwight Howard set the NBA record for free throw attempts in a game (39), but hitting only 21 of them didn’t really bring him close to breaking the record for free throws made in a made (Chamberlain, 28).
Meanwhile in Milwaukee, the Pistons and Bucks set another free throw record, combining to hit all 41 out of 41 free throws on the night. Greg Monroe, a career 77% charity striper, went 8 for 8, also putting up 32 points and 16 rebounds.
For that, Mark Price applauds you. Mark Price and America applaud you.
It’s going to be a short season after an even shorter off-season. We had limited time to track player movement, team development and bring you in depth team analysis, like we did last year. So the bros and bro-ettes at NBAO decided we’ll follow in the footsteps of the NBA and provide you with abbreviated team previews in the best way possible, haikus.
Our third installment of NBA Haikus is dedicated to the Eastern Conference’s Southeast Division. This division has a ton of star power and always gets 3 teams into the playoffs despite not having a single team play in one of the top 5 television market.
