Love the NBA drama!! Better than a soap opera!
So the moral of the story is, a college education teaches social skills, team work, and comraderie lacking in today's nba draftees coming out of high school for the past 16 years. Gotcha.
Dwight Howard needs to bow down to a legend still at the top of his game. Sorry, but that's the power structure.
Their relationship is a mess. Normally, you would look at the coach to step in but I think D'Antoni isn't a player's coach, which is making this situation worse...
Both Kobe and Dwight are right but they're going about this the wrong way. You've got to keep this stuff in the locker room. I think Dwight wants there to be friendship so you know your teammates have your back. And Kobe is coming back and saying that it wasn't like that with him and Shaq, and they still won 3 titles.
D'Antoni and the rest of the coaching staff need to organize more team activities off the court to fix this imo. These guys will be competing as a unit for the entire season and have the same goals, so they need to come together to make sure they have the same mindset.
I bet that if Kobe wasn't he team leader wasn't be team leader their record would improve. I think the key to success for the Lakers is team chemistry. They could learn a thing or two from the Warriors. It's not easy to win when nobody wants to feed the ball to eachother.
