If you are hungry and in New York City and you go to the Olive Garden… you really need an intervention. That is a culinary sin. I’m looking at you, Gordon Hayward.

If the Kings do move to Anaheim, the contract specifies that they be the “Anaheim…” Kings or Royals or Waves or whatever. The city learned its lessons from the Angels. Anaheim comes first.

The Thunder’s end of game plays are designed to getting Kevin Durant making the decisions. That seems a wise course of action to me.

Ron Artest says Lakers fans need Posturepedic beds. He’s not wrong.

Revisiting the Lakers signing of Steve Blake.

Jeff Green talks about the changes and how it’s not easy being green.

The Heat don’t throw enough lobs to LeBron James.

The Nets and the YES network are headed to arbitration regarding an extended television deal.

Looks like the new Wizards logo for next year may have leaked (they are switiching colors to be red and blue).

The Clippers should get Eric Gordon back in 7-10 days.

Danilo Gallinari likely will not be back to the Nuggets until next week.

The Hornets have signed Jerel McNeal for a 10-day contract.

Dwight Howard played through torn MCL and meniscus in playoffs

Dwight Howard hasn’t exactly been healthy in recent years. He missed half of last season with various injuries, including a two-month stretch from January to March after undergoing a knee procedure. On Thursday, he told a Houston radio station that the knee problems continued after that, and he had torn ligaments and cartilage during the Rockets’ Western Conference Finals series against the Warriors:

It’s a little alarming that we didn’t hear about this until now. Sometimes these injuries can heal without surgery, but Howard can become a free agent next summer, so you would think he would want to get any lingering issues addressed ahead of time. Considering his age (he’ll be 30 in December) and his injury history, this isn’t a great sign. A healthy Howard is the difference between the Rockets being a legitimate title contender and an als0-ran, so hopefully these problems are behind him and he can stay healthy this season.

On Tuesday night, Jazz big man Trevor Booker was ejected from a preseason game against the Lakers for taking a swing at Roy Hibbert during a scrap.

Now, Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Booker will be suspended one game for the hit, meaning he’ll miss the Jazz’ October 28 season opener against the Pistons:

Considering he was already ejected, a one-game suspension seems about right.
