Darvin Ham knows there is only one way to stop Nikola Jokic: By kidnapping him

When the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Denver Nuggets in the 2020 Western Conference Finals, the team's plan to stop Nikola Jokic was basically "turn Dwight Howard into a Batman villain."Or, for a slightly more accurate metaphor given Jokic's "Joker" nickname, they asked Dwight Howard to become both the hero Los Angeles deserved, and the one it needed right then.

Boston Celtics: Derrick Favors, Hassan Whiteside not on radar

MassLive's Brian Robb shut down the idea of the Boston Celtics pursuing either Derrick Favors or Hassan Whiteside during his latest Celtics Mailbag, adding that the current bench big-man platoon of Luke Kornet, Noah Vonleh, and Blake Griffin could suffice for the rest of the season.The Houdini recently made the case for Favors to be signed with the $3.2 million disabled player exception - the amount being calculated as half of Danilo Gallinari's salary for the 2022-23 season - but Robb doesn't see the center, who was recently released by the Houston Rockets, as a potential option.

Former Boston Celtics championship PG advocates against any deadline trades

When it comes to the upcoming NBA trade deadline, analysts are split on what path the Boston Celtics should go down between standing pat and making that one last move to nudge itself over the top.Some, like Boston.com'sPeyton Doyle, want to see a major splash, while analysts like MassLive's Brian Robb want to see the team avoid dealing any of the team's tradeable assets, like Payton Pritchard.

Boston Celtics: CP lists 3 former top 6 draft picks for DPE

On the same day that the Boston Celtics were granted a $3.29 million DPE by the NBA after losing free agent signing Danilo Gallinari to a potentially season-ending ACL tear over the summer, they were given some grace with the absence of Steven Adams against the Memphis Grizzlies.Joe Mazzulla utilized a 9-man rotation and started and played Grant Williams for 38 minutes for the first time in a win that didn't cover the spread, but he didn't get a good test for his center rotation - which may need one soon to determine whether or not they can hang with the oversized Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks frontcourts.

Boston Celtics: Age may prevent reunion with former Cs big man

A popular question since Australian big man Aron Baynes returned to basketball with the Brisbane Bullets of the National Basketball League this past summer after a career-threatening injury during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is whether or not the Boston Celtics would consider bringing him back.It's not looking likely that the Cs, or any other of the 29 teams across the Association for that matter, will be signing him to a contract anytime soon - this at least according to MassLive's Brian Robb.

Dwight Howard says he was willing to return to Lakers, team didn't want to give multi-year deals to players over 30

The Dwight Howard and Lakers partnership has been one that has experienced lots of ups and downs throughout three different stints.It was never lower than in his first stint, it was never higher than him helping the Lakers win a title and it was a roller coaster in-between.After a tumultuous season that wasn't entirely Dwight's fault last year - and the big man showing pretty obvious signs of decline - the Lakers opted to move on with younger bigs.

O.G. Anunoby and the Toronto Raptors may have been so shorthanded against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks that Jeff Dowtin had to get minutes, but Toronto managed to eke out a 105-100 victory after managing to overcome a putrid offensive start.Anunoby not only scored 26 points and piled up nine rebounds while defending Doncic for most of the game, but he did so while playing the entire second half and logging 43 minutes in the game.
