Like LeBron in 2010, Dwight Howard is 2013’s Biggest Prize Welcome to the summer of “The Dwecision.” Dwight Howard has waited his entire NBA career to be in this position, and he is going to relish it. He was jealous of LeBron James and Chris Bosh in 2010; he never got traded to the one team he most wanted to join – the Brooklyn Nets – and he is faced with the choice of re-signing with the Los Angeles

When Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov became the majority owner of the team, he made a promise that raised plenty of eyebrows: the Nets will win a championship in five years. It sounded like an impossible promise for a team that had been so awful ever since the departure of Jason Kidd back in the 2007-2008 season. Slowly but surely, though, Prokhorov made sure that his words would prove to be meaningful by building a new arena to help attract free

But now it’s time to abruptly shift gears, from a thrilling final series to a wide-open draft class.

Strangely, that’s what has been happening with Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who has been all over the rumor mill as of late due to his tenuous situation with the team. At first, he was rumored to be a part of the deal that would send Kevin Garnett to the Los Angeles Clippers for DeAndre Jordan and other moving parts.  Then the proposed offer broke

After the Celtics-Clippers deal stalled last night, today seemed like something of a letdown. Luckily, we’ve got Game 5 of the Finals to occupy our NBA-related attention. If the Spurs lose, they go to Miami down 3-2 for games 6 and 7. Is this really the best format? Jan Hubbard doesn’t think so.
