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.
Houston Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff called his team “broken” recently, and with the team currently out of the playoffs Dwight Howard could be on the move.
However, trading Howard may not be as easy as it sounds in theory as colleague Ben DuBose explained in a SheridanHoops column.
Trades talks are heating up with less than a week until the trade deadline on February 18.
Another player who may be dealt at the deadline is Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris who has wanted out since the summer when the team dealt his brother, Marcus, to the Detroit Pistons.
With that in mind, Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops.com joined Sportsnet 590 The Fan radio to discuss the latest on trade rumblings around the league and what the Rockets will do with Dwight Howard.
Guards Jeff Teague and Tyreke Evans have been added to the list of difference makers available on the NBA’s trade market with the deadline less than three weeks away.
The trade market is loaded with forwards such as Rudy Gay, Ryan Anderson, Markieff Morris, Terrence Jones and Corey Brewer.
Trades talks will heat up closer to All-Star Weekend in two weeks when all the general managers are on hand.
Three players who won’t be making the trip are Damian Lillard, Pau Gasol and Hassan Whiteside, which is hard to fathom based on their statistics.
With that in mind, Mike Scotto of SheridanHoops.com joined Sportsnet 590 The Fan radio to discuss the latest on trade rumblings, All-Star snubs and what the Clippers will do with Blake Griffin.

Dwyane Wade scored 2 points last night in a lopsided loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, only the third time that has happened to him in 973 career games. Tyler Johnson started at point guard and shot 0-for-6. The Heat shot a season-low 36.5 percent and failed to break 80 points for the second straight game. As a team, the Heat totaled 13 assists.
Was this "rock bottom," as Michael Wallace of ESPN.com wrote?
Is there any way Pat Riley can fix this mess of a team? Or has he already mortgaged too much of the future by dealing away a pair of first-rounders in last year's deal for Goran Dragic to go along with the top-10 protected pick the Heat will not have (in all likelihood) in this June's draft.
Is there anyone who will take Josh McRoberts off their hands, freeing about $6 million in cap room for next season to possibly allow them to keep both Wade and Hassan Whiteside?
So many questions. You want answers?
I did my best to provide them in this interview on 560 WQAM in Miami on the Big O Show with host and friend Orlando Alzugaray.
Blogger Roosh Valizadeh had the city of Chicago up in arms over his “International Tribal Meet Up Day,” which was a gather of men who stand for the right to be “pro-rape.” Valizadeh referred to his event as a gathering of men’s rights activist who had decided to “come out” about their stance on legal rape. He is now claiming that the whole ordeal was a satire and has canceled the event.
The men were supposed to meet at a flagpole located at Devon Avenue and Sheridan Road that meet at the edge of Rogers Park and Edgewater on Saturday at 8 p.m. The meet was meant to develop “meaningful friendships” and hear from their fearless leader who believes it is every man’s right to impress himself on a female if it’s off public grounds.
“I propose that we make the violent taking of a woman not punishable by law when done off public grounds,” he wrote on his blog a year ago.
Valizadeh also considers himself an expert on picking up women and provides advice to his followers on how to lure in the enemy. That’s right, he considers the opposite gender to be the enemy and often refers to them as such.
“Up to now, the enemy has been able to exert their power by isolating us and attacking with shrieking mobs, but we’ll be able to neutralize that tactic by amassing in high numbers come February 6,” he wrote. “I will exact furious retribution upon anyone who challenges you in public on that date.”

It was fun while it lasted, wasn't it? But if you saw how tired the Golden State Warriors were at the end of their double-overtime victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night, you had to know they'd be gassed the following night in Milwaukee.
That they were, not to mention hobbled with Klay Thompson playing on a bad ankle and Harrison Barnes missing another game. And like all good things, the streak came to an end.
Tonight they will no doubt begin another one, and Friday night brings a quick revenge game against the Bucks.
As we move along through the season, we can circle four dates on the calendar:
Dec. 25: A Christmas afternoon matchup with the Cavs, who will have two guys who weren't around for the NBA Finals -- Mo Williams and Kevin Love -- in their arsenal. Prediction: Warriors by 18.
Jan. 25: The 'Dubs first matchup of the season with the San Antonio Spurs, who are doing their thing under the radar with so much attention being focused for so long on the Warriors. At this point, it is safe to say that the Spurs are the only legitimate threat to defeat the Warriors in a best-of-7 series.
April 7: Another meeting with the Spurs, with a shot at an NBA record 73 wins within their sights.
April 10: A road game at San Antonio after a game the previous night at Memphis. This could be the make-or-break game in terms of bettering the NBA record of 72 wins set in 1996 by the Chicago Bulls.
I covered that Bulls team the night they set an NBA record (in Milwaukee, of all places) with win No. 70. And let me tell you the main difference between watching those Bulls and watching these Warriors: Golden State is a lot easier on the eyes. I offer a further explanation in this podcast with Damon Bruce on 95.7 The Game in the Bay Area.
