The Voice got the Beyonce Fan in full effect . . . .no bueno
If it comes down to losing Howard or firing D'Antoni, the team will let MDA go. Which is what most fans seem to want them to do. DB
Get ready...Dwight Howard rumors/talk/gossip/speculation already is heating up and its not even June 1.
Stay safe, Oklahoma.
West va bound tomorrow
Clifford expects to play in Game 4.
Clifford and Greene are on the ice today. Stoll is still out.
I'd love to read an oral history of the "We Are The World" music video. Make it happen, @grantland33
It is truly fascinating seeing the difference between Kobe wanting to play for the Lakers & Dwight wanting to play for the Lakers
I'm waiting for a playoff series pitting two teams that really, really like each other. BK
Zab Judah was right. Lucas "Lay Em Flat" is a tough opponent. Zab said after the fight that he would be a champ one day.

Jason Collins: "I turned down a birthday party invite from Anderson Cooper to be here tonight. Things like that didn't happen a month ago."
This dinner is lasting longer than Mike Brown's season. DB
Time for dinner. The Kobe announcement is expected to come after dinner. We'll keep you posted. DB
Man, John looks so much like his father. Even sounds and laughs like Jerry. DB
Elgin Baylor on stage w/ other former Lakers talking about the late Dr. Jerry Buss.

Just learned an interesting little factoid: The little kid Elvis impersonator in "Honeymoon in Vegas" is Bruno Mars. AK
Houston? Really Dwight? Even Shaq doesn't like the idea.
The media circus that surrounded the "Dwightmare" was absurd. And he's mentioned numerous times he wants to avoid that this time around. DB
I do believe Dwight doesn't want a repeat of last summer, which is one of the reasons he's intent on keeping quiet this time around. DB
The bottom line is that Howard will take his time, there will be countless rumors, and then he'll make his decision. That's how it goes. DB
Saying this means he isn't loyal or any of that nonsense is a waste of time. Even Kobe threatened to leave via free agency at one point. DB
Being mad at Howard for testing free agency isn't fair. It's his right to do it, and nearly every player before him has done it too. DB
Lakers front office has said they want to know what Dwight's going to do, but he's shown no indication of speeding up his process. DB
But essentially Dwight would have to agree to another tough year in L.A. before there's enough cleared cap space to make a splash. DB
In terms of money, the amount Howard would save in TX because of lack of income tax could compensate losing Bird Rights. DB
Now, does that mean Howard wants to leave and avoid the pressure of market like Los Angeles even w/ its benefits? I'm not so sure. DB
For the most part, for some reason Dwight hasn't been widely accepted in Los Angeles or by Laker fans. DB
In terms of Dwight, it sounds like LAL still has the most off-court opportunities for him. But is that enough to entire him to return? DB
If there's one thing we've learned about Dwight, it's that there will be dozens more of these stories before we have a resolution. DB
We've got our first Dwight Howard update of the summer. Stay tuned. DB
They had Lakers themed Gatorade at the gas station I just stopped at http://t.co/U2Sq0DcTlO
