Found February 07, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
Dwight Howard said neither he or Kobe were doctors, so no one should be questioning his desire to play.  There was one major problem with Dwight’s assessment of the situation the doctors cleared Dwight to play days ago. Mike D’Antoni also informed us on @twcsportsnet that Dwight’s been cleared to play for awhile…tonight he just decided to play… — Serena Winters (@SerenaWinters) February 8, 2013 So, what is really going on with Dwight? Why did it take Kobe calling him out to play (and play badly at that)?  Why would Dwight not play when the doctors said they he was healthy enough to be on the court? I think Dwight Howard is reverting to the Dwight Howard we saw in his last year in Orlando and that is a terrible thing from everyone.  The fans, Dwight and the Lakers.  He isn’t a very stable guy, who is ultra sensitive and a habitual liar. The Lakers better think very hard about their next move.
