That movie should not have any dialogue!
This isn’t O’Neal’s first jab at Howard. When O’Neal played for the Cavaliers, he told reporters he’s the “real Superman,” in reference to Howard’s occasional imitations of the comic book superhero. O’Neal then went out and played perhaps his best game with Cleveland.
Steve Nash scored 13 points and Metta World Peace added 12 as the Lakers lost their second straight preseason game by double digits. Pau Gasol had eight points on 3-of-12 shooting, but Portland surged to a 13-point lead in the third quarter while the Lakers' three healthy starters were still playing.
"We've got a guy who can play above the rim, which we haven't had in years," Bynum said. "It makes the game that much more easy, just his presence out there on the court."vasdf3
"I thought our guards did a very good job of finding him. I thought it was a good first performance for him."
Drummond acknowledged he had some nerves before the game.
"My teammates saw that, but they talked to me before the game," Drummond said. "They said, just play the game, do the things you need to do, help us on the defensive end and things will start coming to you.gsddf
Frank isn't too worried about the expectations of Drummond. He said it would be a long process, like it is for most rookies.
"Anyone can do it once in a while," Frank said. "You don't get to this league without talent. What usually separates players is the ability, one, to fight through fatigue and have greater will than skill; two, is the consistency of doing what you do -- whatever your job is -- and doing it every single night."t67i6767
The regular season hasn’t even started yet and we have already gotten a ton of great quotes from some of the NBA’s finest.
Kobe Bryant recently mentioned that his next two seasons may be his last. During that same interview, Kobe offered a light critic of Dwight Howard’s personality and style of play:
“Dwight, to be a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, you’ve got to have a little of that dog in you,” Bryant said. “It’s just a matter of him digging deep and just pulling it out. But it’s already there. It’s just a matter of him having it become habit.”443
