The Dwight Howard signing is behind us. The fallout is happening now — in Houston, in Los Angeles, and around the rest of the NBA.
First and foremost, Omer Asik has asked for a trade out of Houston, but the Rockets are refusing his request. They believe Asik could be a valuable asset to play alongside Howard.
Tuesday marks the 84th birthday of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. King is best known and widely respected for his efforts in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is most notably recognized for his famous “I Have a Dream” speech that he gave on August 23, 1963 during a Washington D.C. Civil Rights March.
American society may still have a long way to go before we will have accomplished the goal set forth in that speech … However, without his efforts, many African-American working professionals (celebrity and non) may not be in the positions that they currently hold.
For that, many NBA players took time to recognize Dr. King on his birthday.
