Kobe Bryant has some advice for Dwight Howard before he walks into the presumably unappreciative confines of Amway Arena. After all, it could be an emotional return for Howard when the Lakers play Tuesday in Orlando. "Emotional? Man, I'll talk to him," a plainly unemotional Bryant said Sunday. "Just go out there and bust their [rear]. Show them what they're missing. Save the emotional [stuff] for when you retire. " Bryant would know. He is booed everywhere he goes, nowhere more than in his hometown, Philadelphia.

NEW ORLEANS - Dwight Howard's big return to Orlando isn't until next Tuesday, but, sure, let's start the fighting now. Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson took offense to Howard's interview with CBS2/KCAL9 in which he said, "My team in Orlando was a team full of people who nobody wanted, and I was the leader and I led that team with a smile on my face. " No, Howard's teammate in Orlando for eight seasons did not like that one bit. "At some point, when are you gonna, as a man, when are you going to take ownership and stay out of the media in a professional manner?"

Miranda Kerr, model and wife of actor Orlando Bloom, says she's content with having one child for now. When ET Canada asked the Victoria's Secret angel if she was planning on having more kids, she responded: "Someday, not right now. " So no more genetically superior-looking kiddos for now? Sad. The Aussie model was in New York for the brand's launch of the "Fabulous" spring fragrance and bra when she opened up about her home life with 2-year-old Flynn Christopher.

Like the clang of the trolley car bell, the smell of baking fudge and the turn-of-the-century architecture, the Dapper Dans barbershop quartet is part of the fabric of Disneyland's Main Street USA. As part of a yearlong Limited Time Magic marketing campaign, the turn of the century inspired Dapper Dans will be performing songs this week by boy bands from the 1990s to today at Disneyland and Florida's Magic Kingdom. Billing themselves as the "original boy band," the Dapper Dans will sing a medley of "Bye Bye Bye" by 'N Sync , " What Makes You Beautiful " by One Direction and " Rock Your Body " from Justin Timberlake's post-boy-band solo debut.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Not everyone here feels abandoned by Dwight Howard. A young mother has been able to remain in the United States with her two daughters because of legal assistance provided by the Lakers center since he left the Orlando Magic. A pregnant teen about to go into delivery received a ride to a hospital in a car that Howard donated. High school students who collected coats and socks through Howard's D12 Foundation continue to be inspired by his vision for improving the community.

ORLANDO, Fla. - On a night when Jamal Crawford became yet another of the Clippers unable to play because of an injury, L.A. took what was left of its nine-man healthy crew and went to work. The Clippers defeated the Orlando Magic, 86-76, Wednesday night at the Amway Center and broke a three-game losing streak in the process. There was a big void for the Clippers to fill with Crawford (sore right shoulder) being the latest to go down, joining Blake Griffin (strained left hamstring)

ORLANDO, Fla. — Another Clipper has been taken out by an injury, leaving the team to report that Blake Griffin will be a game-time decision Wednesday for its game in Orlando because of his strained left hamstring. In theory, this should be another opportunity for a Clippers reserve to step into that void, but the team has become so depleted that a once-deep squad is not so deep anymore. Griffin pulled out because of the injury just before Monday night's game against the Washington Wizards.

The Clippers maintained they didn't look past the struggling Orlando Magic, a team that entered Saturday's game with a 10-game losing streak. But Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro was in no mood for any explanations his players had following a disturbing 104-101 loss to the Magic at Staples Center. In Del Negro's eyes, it should not have come down to Jamal Crawford's missing a potential tying three-point attempt as the buzzer sounded. And it didn't matter to Del Negro that Chris Paul appeared to injure his right knee late in the game, because the point guard continued to play while the Clippers were having their 13-game home win streak broken.
