If you thought relations between Kobe Bryant and Lakers' teammate Dwight Howard had reached a truce during the All-Star weekend in Houston — think again.

Despite some recent light moments between the two adversaries, Howard reportedly mocked Bryant behind his back in the locker room where he "grabbed Kobe's uniform, put it on, and imitated him in front of all the other players on the West team. He was joking and berating Kobe" to fellow NBA stars, including Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant, according to Page Six of The New York Post.

Big man in a little top.

The NY Post’s source said Bryant later arrived in the locker room, "said hello to everyone on the team except Howard, grabbed his stuff and moved as far away from Howard as he could."

Despite a recent clear-the-air meeting in Memphis, relations between the two Lakers' stars hasn't improved.

At the All-Star Game, Bryant said, "It doesn't matter" what his team does with Howard as the trade deadline nears.  Ouch.

Neither Bryant or Howard returned calls to The Post.

  • Kids will be kids! When I was 12 years old, I remember this happening at Berendo Jr. High School.
    Maybe the Lakers should call in each of their parents for a parent / coach conference.
  • I hope they get stuck with howard for the rest of the year...GO SPURS!!!
  • Geesh this Howard guy is a cancer. And for the record I could never stand Kobe but could care even less for Howard. He pulled the same type crap in Orlando only toward his coach. It's not like he's accomplished anything or even has played well enough to earn his paycheck. Bet he'll be out of LA shortly.
  • Dwight should have never even been at the all-star game to begin with.
  • That's enough of mister Howard, He has not played a good game since joining the Lakers,,,getting traded will be a real blessing.

Dwight Howard Mocked Kobe Bryant to All-Star Teammates; Kobe Wasn’t Amused
