Earlier in the week, there was a rumor flying around the interwebs that Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard had to be separated after a game so they wouldn’t beat the crap out of each other. Bryant, a newbie to Twitter (he joined just last Friday but already has well over 700,000 followers) used it as a vehicle to squash the rumor in the most impressive of ways – by tweeting the above picture.

Just so everyone is aware, the Los Angeles Lakers lost, again. They were beat up by the Rockets and their problem may have been due to the lineup they put out on the court.
