The spotlight’s glare can be a bit harsh in LA. it takes a different sort of individual to be able to flow and not let it wreak havoc in one’s mental. The Lakers soap opera has added another character. Dwight Howard’s dad jumped into the fray to chastise Kobe Bryant and head coach Mike D’Antoni on how they’ve handled Dwight in this recent round of media confessions.
“I told him before he said it publicly, ‘It’s your career. No person can say what you need to do or not do. You can’t worry about what Kobe or anybody else says,’” the elder Howard said. “Nobody can say what Kobe said — that’s stepping into another man’s shoes. I understand what Kobe was trying to do, but he went about it the wrong way. He’s trying to win a championship. But Dwight has to tell Kobe, ‘I appreciate your opinion, but that doesn’t matter. We’re two men on this team. We need to be reasonable about this.’”
Dwight Sr. said he believed Bryant was trying to motivate his son, but that the advice wa

MIAMI -- The dust certainly didn't settle after the Lakers eked out a win against the lowly Charlotte Bobcats, not when Dwight Howard's father injected himself into his son's awkward relationship with Kobe Bryant.
The elder Howard said his son needed to sit down with Bryant to hash out their differences. He also said Coach Mike D'Antoni wasn't being assertive...
Dwight Howard has some type of inherent flaw. I won’t pretend to be an avid NBA fan. When the big games are on, I watch and enjoy. I soak in a player’s greatness and watch him flourish. During the playoffs, I make a conscious effort to catch the contests at hand. I don’t dislike the [...]The post Dwight Howard’s Inherent Flaws Prove Troublesome appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
The Lakers pulled it out in Charlotte on Friday night to bounce back from the beatdown that the Celtics gave them – must be something going on that says LA teams had to suffer an embarrassing nationally televised drubbing because that’s also what happened to the Clippers in Miami on Friday night.
Kobe decided when he got to Miami that he wanted to show you that his skills on...

As the Los Angeles Lakers prepare to play the Miami Heat on Sunday, Dwight Howard was asked to respond to comments his father made about his situation with the Lakers.
In Dwight Howard's mind, the support level from his Los Angeles Lakers has been lacking.
Kobe Bryant shrugged off a scoreless first half to finish with 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds Friday night as the Los Angeles Lakers overcame a 20-point second-half deficit and beat the Charlotte Bobcats, 100-93.
The Lakers avoided a costly defeat to the NBA's worst team and pulled within three games of .500.
Bryant attempted only two shots in the first half and...
Jason Whitney Kobe Bryant stopped by a high school and hung out with high school team
Imagine being in high school and having future Hall of Fame great, Kobe Bryant come in after a long hard practice of hoops. Well, that became a reality for the players at Bishop Loughlin. Not only did Bryant walk through the doors to greet the team, he hung out with them!
MIAMI A new Kobe Bryant supposedly has emerged in recent weeks for the Los Angeles Lakers. But not for LeBron James.
He believes hes the same old Kobe.
James, the Miami Heat star, couldn't care less that the Lakers star recently had a run of 39 assists in three games and 56 over five. Hes doesnt buy that Bryant all of a sudden has become a facilitator.
Do I buy that? No,...

Here’s a line you haven’t read this season: The Lakers could have won it. Okay fine, we’ve actually said that before…a lot, because goodness knows the Lakers have come close to winning a lot of games this past season but have always found a way to falter in the end. If we re-watch those 28 losses, I guarantee at least half of them...
