Just saw a link to Dwight Howard's website over at Orlando Sentinel. It's pretty decent - some good stuff on there. Graphics are a bit lame for a superstar of Howard's caliber - but, nonetheless, check it out. http://www.dwighthoward.com/ I don't know about you, but watching the top 10 Howard Dunks of all time - brings a tear to my eye. He ours. All ours.

Mike Bianchi has a good article up on the Orlando Sentinel about the after game ass grabbin' and hand holdin' (as my dad would say). This is something I completely agree with Bianchi on, which rarely happens. Seriously, I can understand teaching good sportsmanship on your county recreation teams. But anything above that, I can't think of a time I ever liked my opponent enough to hug or hold hands. I'm all for playing fair, clean and even - but leave the huggin for the wife and the hippies.
For all the mouthing off that Shaq did leading up to last night's game against the Magic, he still hasn't learned anything from his 17 years in the NBA. Just keep your mouth shut. He complains about flopping, so he flops. He complains about double-teaming a 37 year old, so the Suns triple-team Howard. Instead of passing the torch to "The Big Show" as I like to call Howard, "The Big Flop" tries to hold on to his last minutes of fame. Van Gundy summed everything up in the post game news conference, ""...very disappointed cause he knows what it's like. Lets stand up and play like men, and I think our guy did that tonight.''
