Things are getting a little testy between the two biggest stars on the Lakers.
Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard got into a yelling match on the court during the Lakers’ win over the Hornets on Wednesday, according to Kevin Ding of the OC Register. Apparently the argument started over a disagreement about the Lakers’ defensive rotation.
If the Lakers’ can’t get along, they could be in for a long season. The Lakers won the game 103-87, so the tift didn’t affect their performance on Wednesday, but its something to monitor moving forward.
