Me either. In fact, the thread title (or author of the article rather) is misleading. A lot of posters have even pointed out how detrimental it is when Kobe or any Laker complains to the officials mid play.

Kobe Bryant: 16 seasons, 5 championships.
Dwight Howard: 5 games.

I can't see how / or why / a 5-games guy can advice a 16-season force what to do on court.
Our 3 best seasons. [1971-1972] 69-13 (.841) / 12-3 (.800). Goodrich, West, Chamberlain, McMillian, Hairston. [1999-2000] 67-15 (.817) / 15-8 (.652). Green, Kobe, Shaq, Harper, Rice. [2008-2009] 65-17 (.793) / 16-7 (.696). Fisher, Kobe, Gasol, Odom, Walton.

I prefer Kobe " agressive" type of leadership over D12 " everything is fine and we're all happy whether we win or lose" style ... Nash may be the most appropriate player to counter balance Mamba leadership ala Fisher

D12 seem to fit more the role LO had in the locker room ... a nice and funny guy to have around to ease up the atmosphere in the locker room

So a guy needs to have 5 rings and have played 16 seasons before he can suggest patience and that the team leaders lead by example? :bang:

I'm with Dwight on this one.

And trying to make him look like a rook is laughable.

Dwight is an all-star and a defensive player of the year who is one of the top players in the world. He can state his opinion. If he wants to stay in LA, he will have to learn how to be a leader. He is not Kobe, so don't expect him to always agree with Kobe. Gasol does the same thing from time to time and that's OK. Fish also had his way of leading the team, so did Shaq.

lol, exactly. the media set the trap, and howard took the bait. you say nothing, and more importantly, if you know kobe, you say even less.

as far as his comments go, he's right. both he and kobe let their body language tell a bad story in the utah game, and guys certainly see that. i know i noticed as a fan. there was a point where kobe's shoulders said "this one's over". if i saw it, everyone on that bench saw it. howard and kobe both whined to officials instead of getting back on d several times, too. how are you going to tell guys like ebanks to keep their head in the game when they see that business when you're trying to get out of a losing streak.

appropriate comments, wrong time, wrong forum.

Lakers fans really need to chill.

Kurt Helin the author is simply baiting, and has a LOT of over emotional Lakers fans taking the bait just by reading the title. Check out his other Lakers articles' titles for the same result.

If you actually READ the article and it's context, Dwight doesn't tell Kobe to "chill", he just says "WE" should try to not show our frustrations out in public.

It's funny how some Lakers fans are making this into a Kobe vs Dwight thing, when it is a NON-ISSUE, especially the Kobe lovers vs Bynum lovers.

This has gotten to the point where baited, way over emotional Lakers fans are now going on Twitter and telling Dwight to chill. It's dumb, ridiculous, and goodbye Dwight next year!

One word: Dumb.

Asking Kobe to change what he's been for 16 seasons that has brought him so much success 5 games into his tenure as a Laker has me a little worried about Dwight's future here.

Oh geez... it's fine!

Dwight isn't asking Kobe to change anything!

^^^Kobe Bryant summed up in a small, soundless clip.

Kobe sitting next to one of the funniest persons to ever live, during a championship game.... and nothing but Focus. IF dwight had that.... he would probably have a ring by now. Shaq liked to joke alot, but when it mattered.... he wasn't just good, he was overbearingly dominant.....on purpose.
