And people thought the report was true
Seemed believable to me, the twitter picture is good PR, but they clearly don't like eachother much on the court.
The twitter picture is convenient isn't it?
I have no doubt that they had words.... Kobe and Shaq had words.... Kobe and Lamar had words.... Kobe and Phil had words....Kobe and Bynum had words..... makes sense that he'd have words with Howard.
Now none of this is to think that I'm down on Kobe.... it's his team... he's' got the championship experience and he's proven to be a leader of championship teams.... he's also emotional and speaks his mind. Most people like that (I'm one of them) make points and move on that way.
As another posted pointed out, it's just for PR. Kobe and Dwight approach the game differently; their two different personalities and fans who know Kobe and Dwight knew this was going to happen eventually. Dwight has seemed mentally checked out of a couple of games this season. The focus just wasn't there.
Kobe has said he wants Dwight to play with an, "edge." Unfortunately, due to health, focus or whatever it may be, Dwight just hasn't had many games he's changed this year. I'm not blaming it entirely on him. I do believe his body his failing him. However, there are other times, when he just looks tuned out. Kobe don't take well to that.
Kobe is probably one of the most focused athletes I've ever seen; he doesn't get focused by outside distractions. Either way, I'm glad this is out now, and I hope things get worked out. If not, Dwight will bolt, and we can go in a different direction.
