Yeah I saw that almost immediately and changed my post, only Pau could get a concussion and gushing bloodied nose from an accidental elbow.

Dwight, who normally never miss games, is now out. That's the Lakers for you. Someone is always hurt -- and they are almost always out "indefinitely".

Now we're really going to suffer. People who are not huge fans of Dwight will have the opportunity to see what he means for the team's scoring, rebounding and, especially, defense.

Finally, we'll have the opportunity to see what Pau can do in the post, since that's what he was complaining about. Unfortunately, I fear I know how that's going to look like. Hope I'm wrong.

I thought Novak got hit worse by the Metta elbow during the Christmas day game. I don't think he missed any time for that; I could be mistaken, though. You're right, though. Only Pau...

Accidental elbow or not, it was a pretty solid connection. Novak's was a glancing blow. Just because Novak went down like a heavy weight champ, doesn't mean his was worse. Pau's looked like he could have broken his nose. I'm not surprised he got a concussion from it.

Just like Nash was only to be out 1 week right? This is not going to be good at all. 1 week is bogus to me.

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.

Exactly. I would be worried if they WEREN'T arguing in the locker room. These guys need to have that kind of passion. But after the point is made and things calm down, that doesn't mean that animosity is still there. I think at this point we'd know pretty well if they didn't like each other or if they were really fighting. It wasn't hard to see when Kobe and Shaq were feuding.

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.

he looks like a total doofus whenever i see him on TV, not just in the picture

anyways, we all know what "at least 1 week" means, it's gonna be downright sad to watch this team in the coming weeks. a few more losses and we can officially put a damper on this season

Why do people keep saying PR? Kobe has never cared about the media if he did he'd be playing like everyone else wants him to play instead of playing like Kobe wants to play. Kobe already said he doesn't play or try to be someone else for people's approval. The guys probably had a typical brush as most teammates do in the heat of losing. The media just took it and ran with it as they normally do.

Im giving him the benefit of the doubt, he is more frustrated than anything. He is not upset enough to the point where he is thinking about skipping town, I think thats very premature given all we have had to go through.

I think dwight is just openly speaking his mind and not afraid to voice his frustrations, and technically everything he said was correct. We do need to share the ball more, develop chemistry and most of all be excited and energetic. Players try and lead in their own ways and he is just sharing his frustration at what he thinks is wrong with our team. This tells me that he does care alot and that he knows we have to potential to really be good.

"It's just funny. We're losing. Every little story that comes out is geared towards breaking our team up," Howard said. "We're bigger than that. We're stronger than that and we're not going to let anything divide us."


I'd like a little credit for actually believing in dwight lol
Before long, someone recognized Phil Jackson sitting in the front seat, and then the rocks began to fly. Revelers pelted the bus and shook it, mocking the Lakers at their lowest moment.


It was painful,” Lakers forward Pau Gasol(notes) said. “It is a feeling that I want to keep in my mind for every single minute that I’m out there playing them.

Bryant dismissed the report as inaccurate.

"It's not true. We all try to be professional about what we do," Bryant said. "I guess some people skate around that a little bit."

The Lakers have struggled all season and currently are three games below .500.

"Obviously there are fake stories coming out, somebody has something against our team," Howard said. "It's not us. Me and Kobe don't have a problem with each other. We're not beefing. So for somebody to come out with a random story and say me and him got into a fight?"

"It's ridiculous," continued the Lakers center. "I just think it's funny."
