SORT BY Relevancy
Dwight Howard called me a liar Tuesday night. He is mistaken.
I wrote that Howard is very unhappy in Houston, and I stand by that report 100 percent. For the reasons why he is unhappy, and my best guess as to where he will finish the season (Miami), click over and give a read to my column.
Howard was interviewed in Sacramento after the Rockets lost to the Kings, and the man asking the questions was Jonathan Feigan, longtime beat writer for the Houston Chronicle. Feigan tried to ask four questions -- the first was about sending a message, the second was about the failure to play as a unit. Howard answered the first two questions with variations of the stock jock reply "We just gotta play hard." The third was about my report, and the fourth was unintelligible because Howard cut Feigan off.
The important question is the third one.
Feigan: "There was a report, maybe you've heard about it, that you were very unhappy with your role. If you hadn't been asked, what response would you have given?"
Howard: "I haven't said nothing to nobody about anything."
There are no lies in my story. I am very well-sourced around the league, and people tell me things that they would not tell other journalists. The sources for this story are exceptionally plugged-in to what is going on with the Rockets. Also,this is not a rumor. There is a difference between a rumor and a news report. This is the latter, not the former.
I had a lot more to say about the latest Dwightmare on the Rockets' flagship radio station, SportsTalk 790 in Houston with host Matt Ryan.

(Gospel Light Minute #187)
He is a professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the NBA. After an outstanding high school career at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, he entered the 2004 NBA Draft, and was selected first overall by the Orlando Magic. He played for the Orlando Magic until 2012 and the Los Angeles Lakers until 2013, before moving on to the Houston Rockets. He is an 8 time NBA All-Star, 7 time All-NBA team selection, 5 time ALL-NBA First Team selection, and 3 time NBA Defensive Player of the Year. He led the Orlando Magic to three division titles and one conference title. In the 2008 Olympics, he was the starting center for Team USA, which went on to win the gold medal. He has led the NBA in rebounds five times and in blocks twice.
Before he was drafted in 2004, he told ESPN that he wanted to use his NBA career and Christian faith to "raise the name of God within the league and throughout the world". He said of his faith, "I'm down to earth. I'm laid back. I just like to make sure people smile. I want to be able to speak to non-Christians so that I can get them saved or change their lives around. Everybody needs to realize that it doesn't matter how old you are or how young you are, you still can be a Christian and live for God. It's not easy but that's why we have God's Word and He forgives us when we do something we shouldn't be doing. You know, God sent His Son to die for us and He paid that sacrifice so you can go to Heaven.
His name is Dwight Howard.
What does it take to design a national memorial to the Great War? Join us as sculptor Sabin Howard talks about the National WW1 Memorial, design principles, and art.
Sabin Howard grew up in New York City and in Torino, Italy. He studied art at the Philadelphia College of Art and then earned his MFA from the New York Academy of Art. For twenty years, he taught at the graduate and undergraduate levels. He has been elected to the board of the National Sculpture Society. He has received numerous commissions and has showed his work at more than fifty solo and group shows.
After 45,000 hours of working from life models in the studio, he is the creator of three heroic scale pieces, HERMES, APHRODITE, and APOLLO, as well as many smaller pieces. His works are owned by museums and private collectors all over the world, and they have been favorably reviewed by The New York Times, American Artist, Fine Arts Connoisseur, American Arts Collector, and The New Criterion, as well as many other journals internationally. He is the author of the book THE ART OF LIFE with his wife author Traci L. Slatton.
Sabin Howard, along with architect Joe Weishaar, was selected as the winning design team for the National World War 1 Memorial in Pershing Sq. Park, Washington D.C.
Most Americans, when they think about the Civil War, probably remember the great land battles like Gettysburg and Shiloh, not realizing that there also was a significant maritime conflict as well. From inland waterways to the deep oceans, Union and Confederate naval forces were engaged in a four-year struggle for control of the trade routes to and from North America. One key campaign was the Confederate attempt to interdict key Union maritime activities, particularly whaling ships which supplied important oil products. To accomplish this task, Confederate Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory commissioned and acquired a small number of armed merchant cruisers, mostly from Great Britain. Though few in number, these merchant cruisers harassed Union trade routes across the globe, and required the Union Navy to commit valuable resources to hunt them down. Along the way their captains and crews became legends in the annals of American naval history.
To learn more about the Confederate commerce raiding campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Dwight Hughes to discuss his new book, A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY. The book chronicles the voyage of the Confederate merchant cruiser CSS Shenandoah, which in 1864 and 1865, circumnavigated the globe on an epic wartime cruise. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to both gentlemen, in what will be certainly an intriguing hour.
