Dwight Howard wants to evolve into his own version of Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant, duh

Source | 6 hrs ago.

Dwight Howard invites you to embrace his evolution. Dwight Howard’s got 14 pro seasons and 1,129 NBA games under his belt, but the 32-year-old center made it clear as soon as he agreed to terms with the Washington Wizards last month that he plans to play until the ripe old age of 40 years old. How does Howard — an eight-time All-NBA selection and three-time Defensive Player of the Year whose career has spiraled in recent years, and who’ll start next season on a new team for the fourth straight campaign — plan to pull that off?

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis thinks reward outweighs risk for Dwight Howard, in part because of the money

Source | 14 days ago.

Many acquisitions in professional sports come down to the give-and-take of risk and reward. For Dwight Howard, that decision presents two unique extremes. He fits the Wizards perfectly from a basketball perspective, but his reputation as a locker room cancer is unwise to ignore. For Wizards majority owner Ted Leonsis, the reward exceeds the risk in part because of the price his team is paying.

Even this Tiger Woods skeptic admits the player deserves some credit

If I had a dollar for every time I have seen someone write or heard someone say, “Tiger’s back,” in the last five years, I would be as wealthy as Eldrick T. Woods. My answer has always been no—and it’s still no after Sunday—and here’s why: WOODS won’t consider himself back until he wins a major championship. Jack Nicklaus and 18 were the name and number Woods always talked about when he was dominating golf, not Sam Snead and 82.

Through nearly three weeks of NBA free agency and almost a month of trades, the Eastern Conference had remained eerily quiet. The Wizards had arguably been the most aggressive team in the East, as all the biggest moves had occurred in the West and, most notably, LeBron James changed coasts.
