Kevin Love The Best Big Man In The NBA? WAT?

As I was tooling around Los Angeles this, former longtime NBA post player and current Laker announcer Mychal Thompson said something on KSPN-AM that blew my mind.

Kevin Love Statistics Don't Lie

(If you’re going by stats, sure looks like it)

During his weekday L.A. Sports Live show with co-Host Andrew Siciliano, Thompson wondered aloud, “is Kevin Love the best American big man in the game?

Thompson cited Spain’s Pau Gasol as the best overall post player in the NBA, but after that, he gave every indication that he thought Love was number-two amongst paint purveyors.

Ahead of Dwight Howard, Amare Stoudemire and anyone else you can name.

As amazing as it may seem, if you were to make the call solely on statistics, Thompson is, somehow, right.

Dwight Howard’s Girlfriend Is Gorgeous, Talented

Over the past four months I’ve had multiple sources raving to me about a new girl Dwight Howard has been seeing.

Christine Vest Photos Dwight Howard Girlfriend

(Good god)

Her name is Christine Vest and she’s a recent graduate of Chico (CA) State, where she played basketball.

I was hesitant to let the cat out of the bag because of Howard’s tumultuous off-court personal issues but from what I’ve heard, Vest is keeper material - in more ways than one.

The 22-year-old Vest is an aspiring singer/songwriter who may actually have the talent to make it in the music biz without glomming onto Howard’s celebrity. Vest has already accrued multiple thousands of views on YouTube despite her complete anonymity.

In other words, she’s not a groupie who only views Howard as a lotto ticket on an exit ramp to Realityshowville.

Paul Pierce Twitter Acct: “Anybody Got a Broom?”

The “digital branding agency” for Paul Pierce claims this morning that four recent Tweets taunting the Orlando Magic from Pierce’s verified Twitter account did not come from the Celtics player.

Paul Pierce Tweet: Anybody Got a Broom?

Athlete Interactive, which coordinates Pierce’s Twitter account, Tweeted Wednesday:

NBAer On Fiancée’s Reality Show: “Disgusted”

In the most recent episode of VH1’s Basketball Wives reality show titled “Cheating Spouses”, current Orlando Magic player Matt Barnes appeared in an excruciatingly uncomfortable scene with his fiancée Gloria, who is a regular on the show, and two other regular cast members.

Matt Barnes Appears On VH1 Basketball Wives

In the scene, Barnes is essentially ambushed by Jennifer Williams (wife of ex-NBA player Eric Williams) and Evelyn Lozada (Antoine Walker’s baby mama) who do everything but accuse Barnes of straying from his engagement. In the show’s previous episode, Eric Williams admitted on camera to cheating on wife Jennifer while he played in the NBA.

This week Barnes guested on the Jim Rome radio show and was asked about the VH1 reality show.

One guess what his reaction was. Read more…

For some reason, Dwight Howard’s baby mama Royce Reed decided to lock up her Twitter account today.

For someone not shy about sharing her privates, the move is perplexing.

Howard: I’m Not Suing My Baby Momma For $9.2M

Orlando Sentinel reporter Brian Schmitz reports that Dwight Howard said Thursday he, “hadn’t sued the mother of his child, former Magic dancer Royce Reed, for $9.2 million in damages for defaming his character, contrary to a fairly detailed report by TMZ.com.”

Howard said he didn’t know of any suit filed in Orange County, Ca., as reported by TMZ.com. “This is on TMZ?” Howard asked. “I haven’t seen it. I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Excerpt of TMZ piece:

According to the docs filed in Orange County, CA, the Orlando Magic center is suing Royce Lyndsay Reed — the mother of his 2-year-old son — over allegedly defamatory comments that surfaced on gossip site lipstickalley.com.

Wait, so there’s documents? If there’s documents filed, then why would Howard be denying the lawsuit? Read more…

Dwight Howard Shows Mary Carey His Magic Wand

Tonight’s bedtime story involves adult film star and former California gubernatorial candidate Mary Carey, the Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard, and Chris Kirkpatrick from N*SYNC. One of them takes off their pants, and it isn’t Carey. Also there’s Bible verses.

Oh come on, you weren’t going to sleep tonight anyway.

Mary Carey, Dwight Howard

In an interview with a Sacramento radio station on Tuesday, Carey — who was in town to promote a strip club, natch — told a pretty amazing story about being pursued by Howard, who showed up at Kirkpatrick’s house to see her while Carey was on a date with Kirkpatrick. Look, you’ll just have to hear it from her.

Includes a guest appearance by Mr. Mxyzptlk, as I am going to call this particular Superman body part.
