Kobe Bryant thinks Dwight Howard is soft. According to a New York Daily News report that was just released, a league source told them that Bryant and Howard had to be restrained following a game against the 76ers on New Year’s Day after KB24 reportedly called the Lakers center soft. The source also said that Kobe referenced some ofShaquille O’Neal‘s criticisms of Howard in the past as he insulted him.
At this point, you can take the story with a grain of salt because neither Kobe nor Howard has confirmed or denied that the altercation in question took place. But, after hearing Howard imply that the Lakers don’t get along off the court after their loss to the Clippers over the weekend, it’s clear that something isn’t right in Laker Land right now. And, if the Lakers have any chance of salvaging their season, they’re going to have to make some major changes within their locker room. Or, at the very least, they’re going to need to learn to play nice with one another.
