I had a feeling this might happened from the day Kobe told Dwight Howard to leave the clown act in Orlando. I didn’t think it would be this bad, but losing compounds everything. Add in the LA media, the general fascination with the Lakers by everyone and it has been better than any battle between Jack Abbott and Victor Newman. Kobe says the whole thing is silly and broke it down as only Kobe can. “All year people have been trying to hang on to stuff,” Bryant said of the media interest in the dynamic between him and Howard. “He’s just got to go do his job, man. Just rebound, defend and we do our jobs and [fulfill] our roles on what we have to do to help us win. It’s not rocket science.” Meanwhile Dwight’s dad is speaking out saying Kobe’s opinions don’t matter and Dwight didn’t say anything to suggest that his dad’s feelings are the same ones he shares. “My dad is a grown man. If that’s how he feels, then we’ll leave it at that. I’m not going to get into it.” Instead of the Real Househusbands of LA, BET should have come out with the The Real Divas of the Lakers.
