Found February 08, 2013 on Unathletic:
Dwight Howard is fed up and let it be known that he is tired of other people trying to assess the severity of his shoulder injury. Howard is considered a game-time decision; he has missed the past three games after aggravating a torn labrum in his right shoulder in the Lakers’ 92-86 loss to the Phoenix Suns at the start of their current seven-game road trip. Kobe Bryant publicly challenged Howard to return, telling ESPNBoston.com’s Jackie MacMullan on Wednesday, “We don’t have time for [Howard's shoulder] to heal. … We need some urgency.” [Continue Reading Story] Typically, I reserve the 10:00 AM post for something cool. Today, I want to go after Dwight Howard. I didn’t like the guy when his drama started in Orlando. For the record, I don’t like Kobe Bryant either. I think it’s safe to say that Dwight is realizing he had the good life in Orlando. He was the star and didn’t have to answer to anyone. Kobe Bryant is a competitor. Kobe Bryant is a winner (on the basketball court). Michael Jordan was that times ten. Michael would probably try and kill Howard. The guy is soft, and he will high-tail it out of LA at his first opportunity. It doesn’t matter if he’s really hurt at the end of the day.  You can look at athletes and realize they aren’t guys you win championships with as your teammate. Kobe probably sees that in Howard, and he would know too because he’s won a few titles. Dwight needed to be paired with Lebron because Lebron would stroke his ego. Jordan and Kobe aren’t that polite. Karma’s a b%tch buddy and you’ve been exposed. By the way, remember when Phil Jackson said he’d start a team with Dwight Howard over Lebron James. Ok, Phil. Stop making it obvious you are who you are because of Michael and Kobe period.
