Kobe told Dwight Howard to leave the Clown Act in Orlando, but to date Howard has ignored him. That is the reason why there has already been several dust ups between Kobe and Dwight.
While Kobe didn’t point out Dwight specifically in these quotes provided by Larry Brown Sports, it is pretty obvious who he is talking about.
“I’m not happy right now and hopefully my teammates feel the same way. You have to reflect on how important this is to you and what it means to you,” Bryant said, per Lee Jenkins at SI.com.
“After we lose by 20 or 30 points we definitely can’t be laughing and joking around,” added Bryant.
It is clear that Dwight Howard just doesn’t care as much about basketball and winning as Kobe Bryant. Frankly, there aren’t many players that do, that is what makes Kobe so great and Dwight more clownish.
At the rate the Lakers are going, they won’t have to worry about this too much longer about their circus, because they won’t be in the playoffs.
