Kobe Bryant has only been on Twitter for under a week, and he has already amassed over 530k followers, and his latest Tweet will surely add to that total.   There have been numerous reports flying around the Internet regarding Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard not getting along, even to the point of having to be restrained from physically going after each other. Well, it seems like Kobe had enough of the rumors and took to Twitter to silence the critics. The Black Mamba Tweeted a picture of him facing off in a fighting stance with Dwight Howard and Coach Mike D’Antoni in between trying to hold them each back.

You have to give Kobe and Dwight credit for keeping things light, as the Lakers are boasting a paltry 15-18 record and just found out that both Howard and Gasol will be out indefinitely with injuries.
