Lakers Interested in Chris Paul or Deron Williams Over Dwight Howard

It’s not surprise that after an underwhelming season and an embarassment in the post season, the Los Angeles Lakers are not the Championship team they once were with the growing talents of the East and All-stars joining forces. The Lakers have already switched up by replacing Coach Phil Jackson with Mike Brown.

Throughout the end of the regular season and into the playoffs, as the Magic was eliminated by the Atlanta Hawks in the first round, with Dwight Howard’s contract coming to an end, the sports world soared with rumors of him possibly leaving Disney World to head to Disney Land.

Well, looks like the Lakers are bypassing the defensive player of the year for a guard, and they’re seeking those talents in likes of either Chris Paul from the Hornets or the newly acquired New Jersey Net, Deron Williams.

Joakim Noah Pulls a Kobe, Fined $50k for Using Homophobic Slur

Joakim Noah is facing the wrath of the NBA as he was caught by one of the cameras using a homophobic slur to a heckling fan in the crowd. Noah has been fined $50,000 and while he was wrong for what he said, Noah’s teammates backed him up.

Video:Bynum Faces Major Fine and Suspension

And the Cheap Shot of the Year Award goes to Andrew Bynum of the Lakers with this one. Last night in the midst of the Lakers embarrassingly being swept by the Dallas Mavericks, the Lakers let their emotions get the best of them and went out with a BANG–literally.

Lamar Odom Kardashian and Andrew Bynum were both ejected for flagrant fouls during the game but Bynum took it one notch higher as he elbowed JJ Barea on his drive to the basket. Check out the video here. Continue reading Video:Bynum Faces Major Fine and Suspension

Video: Artest Ejected for Clotheslining JJ Barea in Game 2

We all know how Artest is a bit loose in the head. In a heated battle on Wednesday night as the Lakers hosted the Mavericks tensions flared and near the end of the game Artest clearly wasn’t thinking. I’m convinced  his mindframe is out of ordinary. As Barea dribbled down court in the final seconds remaining, Artest let the game get to him as Lakers trailed by 11 with 24.4 seconds remaining. Artest clotheslines Barea as Odom was caught in the mix as well.

Charles Barkley made the comment “Ron Artest should be suspended.” I wouldn’t doubt that the Lakers are Artestless as they face Mavs in Dallas trailing 2-0. As this play looks very much premeditated, I wouldn’t also doubt if David Stern issues a fine.

Dwight Howard Comments on Free Agency Rumors

Unexpectedly the Orlando Magic has been eliminated in the first round by the Atlanta Hawks and rumors and speculation are soaring as people question the future of Dwight Howard in a Magic jersey.

He responded: Continue reading Dwight Howard Comments on Free Agency Rumors

Future of Chris Paul in the NBA? Where Does He Go?

Last night on Twitter I began my petition to “Bring Chris Paul to Disney World” to buddy up with Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic in an attempt to keep Dwight from heading to Disney Land and Lakers. This stirred up a whirl wind of discussion as many of you are 100% -or as a friend of mines said “95% sure Chris Paul would joing Melo and Amare as a Knick.” Where does Chris Paul go after the Hornets?
