We reported the news yesterday that Kobe Bryant had a very direct message to Dwight Howard during the Los Angeles Lakers’ meeting with the coveted free agent center. I knew if there was one person who wasn’t going to beg, it was Kobe. If the Yahoo! report is any indication, it was much more of a challenge than anything else.
While I wasn’t surprised by the message Bryant had, I did point out yesterday that Dwight may not necessarily be the player to take well to that type of direct challenge. If you trust the sources of Chris Broussard, it looks like Dwight stayed true to form. Of course, take these type of things with a grain of salt.
Sources close to Howard tell me Kobe's reported pitch in Tuesday's meeting about teaching D12 how to win will be a "complete turnoff" to D12
