Instead, he says the exchange had to do with confusion over whether it was supposed to be him or Blake Griffin involved with a play.

“Pop was diagramming a play for me, and then as he showed us what to do he kept saying, ‘Blake,’” Howard said according to the LA Times. “So Blake and I are confused, but he keeps saying Blake, so Blake takes off his jersey and goes into the game.

“Pop sees me and wants to know why I’m not in the game running the play, so I tell him he kept saying Blake so Blake went in. He wasn’t swearing at me.”

kind of lol mostly sad

"He got away with a shot," Howard said, according to Yahoo! Sports. "I will remember this game. I will remember that shot. He said he wasn't trying to do it. You can look at the play and see it for yourself. I will take care of it later."

"I can shoot the ball from anywhere. I've just got to have confidence in myself," Howard said.

While the injury is not a serious one for the center, he may miss out on the Wizards' opening game against the Miami Heat. Howard's days as DPOY may be over, but he is still a valuable asset to the Wizards, as he came in to replace Marcin Gortat.

Howard is known around the NBA as being one of the top defenders of his generation. Though he's jumped from team to team in recent years, he still makes a difference whenever he is on the hardwood. With his massive size, opposing players know better than to try and get cute around the rim.

the very short version is:

trans woman claims she was in an exclusive relationship with dwight, ended it when it was no longer very exclusive on his end, began getting shady anonymous messages involving bribes then threats, traced them back to dwight’s ppl including his “pastor,” saved a variety of electronic evidence along the way.

Dwight is such an inimitable and curiously indescribable figure, i was trying to explain his downfall the other night to someone..."well see he was legitimately great, considered to be likable, and then he went to the Laker and got on Kobe's bad side and started telling dad jokes..."

i couldn't do it past that point.

i guess i could call him a controversy-free* Alex Rodriguez, and somehow the gulf between his desperation to be liked and the reality is even more enormous than A-Rod's.

he's never had a major scandal one can point to, he just shows up with a new franchise and walks into the locker room cracking jokes with his teammates and putting up 16/12 and pretty soon rumors are out that he's going to be fragged on the next road trip.

(*we'll see what occurs with this recent business)
