    Dwight Howard unintentionally admits the Lakers don't like each other

    http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...lay-each-other

    "(Chemistry is) something we have to do to get better. We have to play like we like each other. Even if we don't want to be friends off the court, whatever that may be, when we step in between the lines or we step in the locker room or the gym, we have to respect each other and what we bring to the table.

    -- Lakers center Dwight Howard
    on team chemistry

    ---------------------
    KOBE: "We did. We won three straight," Bryant said, referencing the Lakers' three-peat from 2000-02. "One of them has to sacrifice. I sacrificed quite a bit with individual numbers and MVPs and NBA Finals and all this other stuff.

    HOWARD: When told of Bryant's quotes, characterizing himself as sacrificing during the O'Neal era, Howard asked for clarification.

    "He took a back seat?" Howard asked. "I was super young, so I really don't remember too much from those championship runs."

    --------------------------
    "I don't think you guys would want to come into work with a boss that's always telling you what to do. If you see the boss being at ease and having fun doing it, then you're going to have fun doing that. That's who I am. I've been an alpha male my whole life, but I don't go pissing everywhere to show people that I'm an alpha male. I just need to be who I am."
    LOL @ this. Originally, I thought the Lakers would be amazing. But the more you put thought into it, Kobe isn't LeBron, Melo, Wade, CP3 personality wise. He's a selfish guy, with a selfish personality who alienates his teammates. It was that way with Shaq, it was that way mid 2000s with guys like Smush and it's going to be that way with Dwight. Kobe's just not likable and a team guy in the same way all those other guys are. They can mesh with 'superteams'.

    Kobe's gotten over the hump five times, not because of chemistry, because of his pure talent and the fact he's always had elite teammates around him, even if they hated him.

    EDIT: Wow, if you read the whole article. It's a complete joke. You have Kobe talking about Shaq/being alpha male and then Howard questioning what Kobe said. So dysfunctional. With the last quote I posted, you could just tell Howard has utter dislike for Kobe, that quote was a direct shot that Kobe flaunts his 'alpha male' status.

    You have Kobe saying that he took a backseat to Shaq, but is now the clear alpha male on this team. This will surely irk Howard because Howard doesn't like Shaq and Kobe would take a backseat for Shaq, but not him. Kobe, who knows if it was unintentional or not, basically said Howard/Kobe will never be Shaq/Kobe, insinuating Howard doesn't have Shaq's talents. I'm starting to strongly feel there is no way Howard will be back next year, I don't think he'll want to waste five years of his prime with Kobe.

    I dont think Howard will walk away from the extra year the lakers can offer or the money that LA will bring him in general

    But that is a terrible comment to throw out there. sheesh

    Dwight has gone from Beast to B!tch. Him and Pau look like Laverne and Shirley. I hope the Lakers get there **** together soon.

    If the Lakers get bounced in the 1st, or don't make the playoffs they'd have to do major rebuilding, resigning Dwight, getting in new players and getting a new coach.

    ALL that has to happen for Dwight to stay.
    If they don't, I could see him end up in Brooklyn, Golden State, Houston or Dallas.

    110% accurate, Kobe always will have to be the alpha male. The Lakers would have been much better off with bringing in passive personalities to keep the little rat happy.

    My favorite comment is when he said he was "pretty young" when Shaq and Kobe played together. He was like....14-18 years old. I remember tons of stuff from the NBA way before that age.
