Spurs@Magic 8 p.m. [TNT] This telecast comes one day before the launch of Adidas' TS Bounce Commander basketball shoe, two of whose endorsers meet in the game - San Antonio's Tim Duncan and Orlando's Dwight Howard (right). If David Robinson still played for the Spurs, he could have endorsed the Master and Commander shoe.

It's too soon to tell Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel Who knows? We haven't seen the real Lakers yet. This is not LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh working through their growing pains during a 9-8 Heat start to the 2010-11 season. This is a Lakers team that has yet to play a single game intact under the D'Antoni system. For now there is nothing but chaos, chaos exacerbated by Pau Gasol's knee issues. Only when Kobe Brant, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard and Steve Nash are together on the court, playing in whatever style D'Antoni is supposed to be delivering, can we appreciate the level of desperation.

They won't get far Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel What the Magic should do is undo what they did. Why make any move while Carmelo Anthony is still on the market? That's the move the Magic needed, one that likely could have been made through a far less disruptive process, with the type of rebuilding pieces that could have benefited the Nuggets, pieces such as Marcin Gortat, Brandon Bass, Mickael Pietrus, J.J. Redick and other serviceable parts that could have fast-tracked a Denver rebuild.

Way too early to say Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel LeBron James will play where he feels most comfortable, and where he sees himself having the best chance to win. And if anyone has any idea about that in October 2012, they should scout out a sports book that offers futures lines for two seasons down the road. With the looming luxury tax and Dwyane Wade's lagging legs, even the Heat don't know where they'll stand in July 2014. And with legitimate uncertainty about whether Kobe Bryant truly will step away after 2013-14, the Lakers' future payroll remains in flux.

Only if he gets help K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Nobody should be fooled by Dwight Howard's comments and suddenly think loyalty exists in sports again. It doesn't. And if you read Howard's comments closely, he says he plans to stay with the Magic — but needs help. Translated: Better get creative, Otis Smith. The Magic general manager tried to with two bold trades last season. But they didn't really work. The Magic long have been a flawed team and Howard will realize that soon enough.

Magic will make change Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel Of course Stan Van Gundy won't keep his job with the Magic, and he's coaching them in name only now, simply collecting checks until someone, perhaps his "source" in the front office, puts him out of his misery by issuing him his sought-after golden pink slip. The Magic will do what seemingly every team in sports does, go from a hard-driving coach to an easygoing type in a bid to change the culture and appease the restless.

Orlando needs change K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Define regret. If they think the moves alone will appease Dwight Howard enough for him to sign a long-term extension, Orlando management might regret the moves. Because you never know what that Howard guy is thinking. If you made the moves to get new voices and leadership, then fine. Look, Van Gundy is a very good coach. But it's not like other good coaches aren't out there. And it's also not like Van Gundy doesn't wear on players after a while.

To title behind Howard Baxter Holmes Los Angeles Times The Lakers and Celtics have been knotted at 17 championships each, but Dwight Howard will lead the tiebreaking charge. Yes, Virginia, Kobe Bryant will have as many rings — six — as Michael Jordan. Oh, there's a season to be played? Semantics. Howard's back will be fine and the Lakers will roll through the West before meeting the Heat for it all. And there, you won't see LeBron James and company in the paint nearly as much as they are accustomed.

1 Pointing the finger: Did Virginia Tech (at Virginia, 8 p.m., chs. 54, 20) have to suspend Jeff Allen for his gesture in College Park? Couldn't the Hokies just tape two of his fingers together? 2 No Bull: Georgetown should have checked with Marquette before the Hoyas traveled to South Florida for tonight's game (7, MASN). 3 No ladder needed: If you saw the dunk contest, you know Dwight Howard (left) and the Magic (at the Hornets, 8 p.m., ESPN) have a big advantage if the baskets are suddenly raised to 11-plus feet.

The Orlando Magic organization is supposed to be run like any other professional sports franchise. The GM makes decisions regarding personnel. He gives the team assembled to a coach, who does his best to put a winning product out on the court. The owner pays for it all. But the Magic aren't like most other franchises, because they have a superstar who thinks he is bigger than the game.  Dwight Howard has been the coach, general manager and star player in Orlando for about two years now . He has been holding the entire organization hostage as it tries to appease a flip-flopping All-World center who can't seem to make up his mind. This is just another chapter in a growing narrative of selfish, me-first NBA players who just refuse to play with the cards they're dealt.

Still the favorite Josh Robbins Orlando Sentinel The injuries to Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose, LaMarcus Aldridge and Chauncey Billups hurt the United States' chances to repeat as Olympic champs, but Team USA still should be considered the favorite. The biggest problem for the U.S. is Howard's back injury, because it leaves the Americans with just one 7-footer, the Knicks' Tyson Chandler. Chandler is a superb defender, but he's not as good as Howard.

L.A. comes out ahead Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel The city of Los Angeles was the biggest winner at the trade deadline. The Clippers and Lakers both made deals that moved them closer to competing with the Thunder. The Clippers acquired Nick Young from the Wizards for almost nothing (Brian Cook and a second-round pick). Young gives them another scorer in the backcourt to help offset the loss of Chauncey Billups. The Lakers made similar progress with the acquisition of point guard Ramon Sessions.

It's been a rough week for Terps fans with Randy Shannon turning down an offer to be Maryland's defensive coordinator and the men's basketball team losing to Virginia Tech. This video of J.J. Redick getting juked out of his sneakers should cheer you up. The former Duke Blue Devil and Terps nemesis has been on the wrong side of a couple of highlight-reel plays the past two weeks. He got his ankles broken by unexplosive Wizards guard Kirk Hinrich on Wednesday night and was laughed at and mocked by his Orlando Magic teammates.

Lakers will pursue both K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune There's a chance both could land there, which begs another question: Wasn't the new collective bargaining agreement supposed to promote more competitive balance and limit players' power over movement? Oops. Chris Paul is the more likely option since he has already told Hornets management he won't sign an extension. No team can afford to lose a player of Paul's value for nothing. Though massive speculation exists that Dwight Howard will reach the same conclusion, there is no official word from Howard or the Magic to this point yet. The Lakers aggressively will enter both sweepstakes in an attempt to get younger and more athletic.
