Dwight Howard Drops a ‘Pause’ When Asked About Andrew Bynum (Video)

Those of you who are unfamiliar with the slang definition of the word “pause” may be more familiar with the term “no homo.”  Both essentially mean the same thing and are used when making a reference that could be construed as sexual in nature.  The latter is used more in a hip hop setting while the former is a bit more common in everyday conversation and in the media.

Dwight Howard, who is no stranger to goofing off during interviews, made the reference when talking about Andrew Bynum after the Magic’s loss to the Lakers on Monday night.  It reminded us a lot of Gus Johnson’s “pause” when Spike like said he “likes Dick” a few years ago, which pretty much introduced LBS to the term.  Check out the Dwight Howard “pause” video, courtesy of Cosby Sweaters.

Shawne Williams Dunks on Dwight Howard (Video)

There are very few occasions where we can say something nice about Shawne Williams.  For a guy who generally makes the news for getting into a fight or getting choked by Ron Artest, it must be refreshing to hear a compliment. When you find a way to dunk over Dwight Howard, you deserve one.  Normally I wouldn’t find Williams throw down on Tuesday night to be that impressive, but when it’s over a beast like Howard we can give you props.  Check out the video of Shawne Williams dunking on Dwight Howard, courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk:

Side note: the Knicks lost because they couldn’t play any defense. That’s different.

Video: Dwight Howard Mocks LeBron James Powder Toss, Photo Intro

If this was Dwight Howard’s way of proving he wasn’t scared of LeBron James and the big, bad Heat, it was a stupid idea. Before the Magic and Heat game in Orlando Thursday, Howard mocked two LeBron James pre-game traditions. The first was the baby powder toss which Howard mimicked using imaginary powder. The second was LeBron’s team photo, something James used to do with the Cavaliers. Here’s the video of both skits:

Adidas Debuting Tight-Fitting Jerseys at All-Star Game, New Derrick Rose Shoes

Whoo boy, I’m sure you’ve seen Dwight Howard taking off his shirt to reveal a skin-tight jersey underneath plenty of times in the past. Well what if I told you that tight-fitting jersey will be available to him and all All-Star players to wear during the All-Star Game later this month? The jerseys won’t be mandatory but they’ll be optional.

In addition to the tight jerseys, Adidas is releasing a new Derrick Rose shoe called the “adiZero Rose 1.5″ at the All-Star Game. Their other superstar basketball player, Dwight Howard, will have his new “Super Beast” shoe released as well. Both shoes will go for a relatively reasonable $100.

Lastly, the fine people at Adidas are introducing a new warmup suit for the All-Stars that will mimic a three-piece suit, giving players a red carpet look. Can’t wait to see those badboys!

So what do you think of the tight jerseys? I think they’re fine, but cohesiveness is a big issue for me; you can’t have a tight shirt and baggy shorts, it has to be a coordinated look.

Dwight Howard Makes Fun of LeBron’s Chalk Toss in Cleveland (Video)

Dwight Howard has become quite the joker this season.  We’ve always known Superman had a sense of humor, but he’s even funnier now that he has made a habit of personally ragging on other athletes.  First, Dwight tooled on Derek Anderson for his “I wasn’t laughing” rant.  On Tuesday night, D-Howard decided to make fun of LeBron James by impersonating his chalk toss to the Cleveland crowd.  Check out the video of Dwight Howard making fun of LeBron James’ chalk toss:

What would have made this bit funnier is if the Cavs fans appreciated it.  Is it just me, or do they not look enthused?  Howard was trying to get a rise out of them, but he wasn’t taking into consideration that they all suffer from PTSD and were probably having horrific flashbacks while he was doing it.

Dwight Howard Makes Fun of Derek Anderson’s Rant (Video)

Poor Derek Anderson.  Not only is he the quarterback of a 3-8 team and a guy who had to answer questions about smiling while he team was getting smacked around — he’s now the center of jokes across the sporting world.  Following a 90-79 Magic win over the Pistons on Tuesday night, Dwight Howard decided to have a little fun at Anderson’s expense.  Check out the video of Dwight Howard making fun of Derek Anderson, courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel:

If Dwight wasn’t about 7 feet tall, 265 pounds, and one of the strongest guys in the NBA, I’d say Anderson should call him out.

Dwight Howard Won’t Be Suspended for Flagrant Foul On Pierce

Last year, Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy spent some time crying about certain players receiving preferential treatment regarding suspensions, depending on the situation.  He was specifically referring to the league’s decision to not suspend Rajon Rondo following a flagrant foul he committed on Chicago’s Brad Miller.  I’m sure Van Gundy has no problem with the officials giving stars preferential treatment in this year’s playoffs, because if they didn’t he’d be without his best player for Game 3 against the Celtics in Boston.  The NBA reviewed Dwight Howard’s foul on Paul Pierce in last night’s game — which was ruled a Flagrant 1 — and announced that the play will stand as called and will not be upgraded to a Flagrant 2.  That means, of course, that Howard will not be suspended.  In case you missed it, here’s the video of Dwight Howard’s flagrant foul on Paul Pierce during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

I’m never one to complain about suspensions not being handed out — especially in the playoffs when it could potentially affect the outcome of a series.  However, there’s no doubt in my mind that if this foul is committed by let’s say, Kendrick Perkins, its a Flagrant 2.  Granted, Perkins is a loud mouth who loses his cool far more often than Howard, but this is absolutely star treatment at its finest.  Howard grabbed Pierce by the face and threw him to the ground.  If that isn’t considered trying to hurt someone, then I really don’t know how you can determine what is and what isn’t.  Maybe Van Gundy’s whining last year paid off.
