Beyond The Buzzer:
After scoring back-to-back clutch 3s in the final minute of regulation to force overtime, Kobe finished the Raptors off with a go-ahead dunk with under 30 seconds to go willing the Lakers to victory. Dwight Howard has an idea to celebrate a performance like that in Friday’s win over the Raptors.
According to the Los Angeles Times:
Said Howard: “I think Kobe, after a game like this, he should walk off in slow motion with the ‘Bad to the Bone’ song.”
Then, a few minutes later, as Bryant emerged from the trainer’s room, Howard started humming the guitar riff from the George Thorogood song.
“B-b-b-b-bad,” Howard added, smiling.

Coming from a guy who has a record 11 league-mandated suspensions since 2003, and is just one flagrant foul away from another, this should be...

I would hope that Dwight Howard is starting to figure things out, but because he talks so much and contradict himself so often, you have to wonder.
