SH Blog: Parsons says he would boo Howard if he was still a fan, Woodson says Knicks still have a shot

Dwight-HowardThe clip above is what the Orlando Magic decided to show in the second quarter of the game against the Houston Rockets when Dwight Howard came to town on Wednesday. It was a short tribute video for all the marvelous years Howard gave to the franchise.

The question is, why in the world would the Magic do this?

Were they really looking to honor and thank Howard for his time with the team? If that was truly what they had in mind, that’s certainly a silly way of showing their appreciation, as the crowd showered the arena with boos through the entire video.

The Magic know that fans in Orlando are going to boo the hell out of Howard until the day he retires. Showing a tribute clip and having the crowd booing it all night is a great way to mock what he did for them (not thank him), and Howard certainly isn’t going to shed any tears over it with the crowd reacting that way. Perhaps the result was the actual intent, in which case, bravo.

Here is a cleaner version of what the tribute video looked like:

Tweet of the Night: Andrew Bogut suffers from bad reaction to cortisone shot


BogutGolden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut has missed a lowkey two weeks of action since suffering a mysterious bone bruise in his left shoulder, and what was originally thought as the team keeping him out for precautionary reasons has become a cause for concern.

Bogut has missed four consecutive games, and is still considered day-to-day despite getting an ample amount of rest from the All-Star break. No one really knows when or how it happened, including coach Mark Jackson, but the injury is very real and the team will have to continue monitoring how the center progresses from his painful injury.

Tweet of the Day: Steph Curry’s Facebook Q&A

Leave a comment

Tuesday night the Charlotte Bobcats put the clamps on the Dubs shooters—holding the team to a pitiful 31.2-percent from the floor—in a 16-point blowout win. It was the team’s worst shooting percentage since 2004, when they shot 27.5-percent against the Memphis Grizzlies. Point guard Steph Curry shot 8-of-18 (44-percent) from the floor in the loss.

The most efficient scorer on the team—not named Curry—was Jermaine O’Neal, who made his return from wrist surgery, having shot 2-of-5 (40-percent) from the floor en route to nine points in 17 minutes.

On the heels of one of the Golden State Warriors’ most abysmal offensive outings in recent memory, the team took to the practice court to try to correct their wayward shooting. Prior to practice, point guard Steph Curry informed his followers that he’d be holding court for a Q&A afterwards on his Facebook page.

Why Australia’s Dante Exum Will Be a High Lottery Pick


Dante Exum AustraliaAustralian basketball has received a much-needed shot in the arm over the last 12 months.

And just wait and see what’s coming next.

Former top overall draft pick Andrew Bogut has returned to full health and is again playing solid two-way basketball for the surging Golden State Warriors. Patty Mills has emerged from chief towel waver for the San Antonio Spurs to knockdown 3-point gunner. And undrafted rookie guard Matthew Dellavedova has worked his way into the rotation for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It is also worth mentioning that All-Star Kyrie Irving holds dual citizenship in the United States and Australia and returns to my home city of Melbourne in the offseason to promote the game and host camps. Things are definitely looking up for starved Aussie hoops fans. And the best may be yet to come.

Enter Dante Exum.
