Dwight Howard battled an addiction so bad it started affecting his game in 2013, but the NBA star’s vice was not what you’d expect. “He used to have boxes on boxes of candy in the locker room,” a source confirms to PEOPLE. The Lakers’ nutritionist, Dr. Cate Shanahan, who detailed his notorious sweet tooth for ESPN The Magazine, says the now Atlanta Hawks player would eat anything from Skittles, Starbursts, Rolos, Snickers, Mars bars, Twizzlers, Almond Joys, Kit Kats and his favorite: Reese’s Pieces.
Wizards PG Brandon Jennings, who the Knicks waived on Feb. 27, discussed why he wasn't a fit and explained what went wrong with the team's offensive strategy during his time in New York.
Phoenix Suns rookie Marquese Chriss is an athletic big man. During Thursday night’s matchup against the Brooklyn Nets, Chriss got loose behind the defense for an alley-oop off a no-look pass from Tyler Ulis. The play came about halfway through the first quarter. Ulis was out in transition, and four Nets players committed to the arc with nobody back to guard the rim. That allowed Chriss to slip past everyone down the left side of the floor for the monster dunk. Brooklyn beat Phoenix, 126-98. The win was the Nets’ first consecutive win of the season.
