Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard’s downward spiral into NBA oblivion

Dwight Howard’s eight seasons in Orlando featured many accomplishments both for the Magic and for himself. He led the league in rebounds per game four times and also led in blocks per game twice.

The Golden State Warriors are facing their first true test of adversity

The Golden State Warriors are facing adversity for the first time in a while. With Kevin Durant joining the Warriors, the expectations for this team skyrocketed. Adding a bonafide scorer to a 73-win team blew those expectations through the roof. Even after they moonwalked through the playoffs last year, everyone wrote this team in the NBA

The spotlight of the NBA is slowly drifting away from LeBron James

LeBron James is someone who isn’t shy of the spotlight. He’s been heralded the king since high school and has been the star of the show ever since. However, in the past couple of years, that spotlight on James has changed and I think he has noticed that as well. The phrase “face of the

NBA LeBron James and James Harden

Does the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award really focus on the most valuable player?

Is the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award really about being the most valuable? When you read the phrase “most valuable” you think of the player that’s most important to their team. If we’re calling the most heralded award in the league the Most Valuable Player award then I believe it should truly be awarded to
