Ok so Dwight's and Kobe's team are denying it. I guess it must not be true then. Yeah right. If it's out there chances are there is some merit to it.

there is no kobe team as ramona shelburne is employed by espn. as far as jarrod rudolph, jarrod rudolph just spent the better part of 8-12 months telling you and everyone that would listen that dwight is fed up with orlando. hindsight clearly says that rudolph was correct, so if rudolph doesn't mind spilling the beans about things that is supposed to be in house between orlando management and howard do you really think he'd have a problem outing that dwight and kobe were about to have some playground fight in the locker room, especially if it meant he gets publicity and gets to go on radio stations around the country to talk about it just like he did last year regarding a trade? not minding that all of this was started by some brooklyn nets beat writer. who the hell could've told him? how does someone who lives on the other side of the country point out what happened in the la lakers locker room, yet not one la journalist nor dwight's people know anything about it? the same la journalists that have been in jim buss' ass all season and you think they wouldn't be the first to point dysfunction of this magnitude out playing out in the locker room?

could there have been some words exchanged? more than likely giving the season they're having, but that happens in every locker room in professional sports. players argue then settle because at the end of the day they're on the same team working towards a common goal. it just so happens teams don't usually have what happens in their locker room outed by writers on the other side of the country. not to mention dwight doesn't even have the same stand up guy attitude that shaq had, kobe could've said dwight's mama tastes like raisin bran and dwight wouldn't have done a damn thing about it.

but honestly, this stuff isn't going to end until dwight re-signs. people like you are waiting for june to come and for him to walk so you can laugh at the demise of the lakers, much like all of the nba is doing right now. we'll see, but all i've got to say is some feeling are about to be hurt in about 4 months and i have 18 reasons to feel confident in saying that it won't be ours.

Not really. I could give a crap about the demise of the Lakers. I'm just saying that if it's out there and knowing the history of Dwight, then I m sure there is some merit to it. Let's not forget that Dwight left Orlando claiming that he was not the go to man. Imagine how his super ego feels now that he is the third or fourth option. I am sure that he loathes the fact that Kobe takes 30% of the teams FG attempts. Dwight wants to be the man. It will never happen. Oh and btw he is not resigning with the Lakers. Mental midget needs to be coddled. Hello Marc Cuban.

i'm guessing you really don't have any ground to stand on except for making your own assumptions, am i right? i at least have the irrefutable facts with me. the picture of kobe and dwight mocking this, la reporters and all reporters in general not from brooklyn flat out denying the story, dwight's people saying it didn't happen. it's all staring you right in the face and it all points to dwight and kobe not being at odds, yet you still decide to ignore it all in favor of your what you think happened. you must live in new york and are the brooklyn nets writer who came up all of this in the first place, you've got to be. it's the only way.

as far as him being the man, dwight howard himself knows he can't be the man right now with a messed up back even if he wanted to. he's made that clear he's not 100% all year. and he even acknowledged that he wasn't going to be the man on this team as long as kobe's here by saying:


"I know who (Bryant) is to this team, what he has been to this team for a long time," Howard continued. "But there's going to come a day where he's going to be gone, and that's when I have to step in and fill that void and take this team to the next level. That's why I'm here. That's why they wanted me here, and I'm going to do my job and my part to make sure this team gets there – and it starts with me.
"Even now, it starts with me. That's why I come in, and I work as hard as I can every day, don't take days off and all that stuff because I want to show these guys that I'm all about winning and I'm all about making sure this team gets to the top. That's all we say. At the top is us. That's where we want to be."


yeah, dwight's leaving.

wait a minute, i just now saw you say you had him going to the dallas mavericks? one of the franchises in the league who's actually in worse shape than us? the same franchise who is possibly thinking about trading dirk for a rebuild? those mavericks? sounds legit.

Destro that guy is a lame ignorant troll who wants to gloat a little at our expense. He knows you're posting facts but its easier for trolls to ignore facts and push agenda.

Yeah you also have ground to stand on. Just like Dwight will never go to LA to follow in Shaq's footsteps right? Or how about when Dwight and Jameer went at it and that was also denied. Maybe Dwight denying he wanted SVG fired and then having to eat crow when SVG told everyone that he had heard that straight from the top. Believe the media if you want. Just enjoy D12 because he did not come here to be 3rd fiddle and he definitely does not and did not want to go to LA. It just worked out that way. He can't handle the pressure. He'll be in Dallas next year as you'll probably both be rebuilding. Also why is it when anyone disagrees you call them a troll? I don't believe I'm trolling. You guys are funny. Anyway good luck the rest of the season.

Take your lame trolling elsewhere. Destro already destroyed you with facts.
