View Full Version : Report: Dwight had to be restrained from going after Kobe following altercation

Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant just canít get along, and thereís a team in Brooklyn that might be waiting to pick up the pieces.

A league source told the Daily News that the Lakers stars got into a heated exchange following a New Yearís Day loss to the 76ers, and Bryant went for a low blow Ė referencing and agreeing with Shaquille OíNealís criticisms of Howard being soft.

Howard was restrained from going at his teammate, according to the source, and there have been rumblings from the centerís camp that heís been unhappy with Bryant since earlier in the season.


Three days after the altercation, following a disheartening loss to the Clippers, Howard complained about the lack of chemistry on the Lakers.

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/basketball/nets/brooklyn-benefactors-kobe-howard-feud-fuel-dwight-nets-deal-article-1.1234685#ixzz2HHEpewgi

Now we know what was the source of Dwight's comments that came right out of nowhere about the Lakers lack of chemistry.

I wonder if Kobe realizes that there are huge egos at stake and that the same tactics he used to try to get the most out of Shaq wont equal the same results without a mediator like Phil Jackson in the locker room.

He admits that openly as his weakness.

But Kobe finished that 76ers game with no assists so I can see why Dwight would be mad that Kobe did not try to get him the ball more only to criticize him in the same breath.

For those wondering, I was told on Thursday that the rumor of a Dwight-Kobe altercation was nothing more than talk.
I also know of two other reporters that were made aware of the rumor last week and also told the story wasn't true when they looked into it.

Jarrod Rudolph's twitter

I honestly don't think this is true. Just trying to stir the pot

Same "reporters" who were confirming Phil Jackson was the next coach barring something unforseen going down?

Yeah, we know its a lot of misinformation that is floated to even the beat writers in LA about the Lakers. Jim Buss tries his hardest to keep it all quiet.

It's obvious it's who he is. Unless you enjoy being breaking up by all your girlfriends, I don't see why you would go crazy wanting this guy on your team...

How many other beat reporters/reporters are as wrong as the local ones who cover the Lakers? Of course nobody close to the Lakers wants that stuff getting out just like nobody will publicly speak on why Mike Brown was fired after 5 games and how it occured after Kobe's behavior towards him in Utah.

Mason & Ireland are the only 2 people who you can hold to their word for things that go on in LaLa Land.

He and Kobe are divas, no doubt. But again, i don't think it's true. The team isn't divided, but I do think they're on edge right now.

If they were winning, this wouldn't happen. This season sucks, probably a write off, but I'm happy that the rebuild is coming soon.

Can't win 'em all, but we did a better job than any other franchise over the past 15 years.

Gasol and Kobe are fine, don't see what's wrong there. Kobe and Nash are fine. What's weird is Nash has called Dwight out few times, albeit very subtly.

He talked about his energy not being consistent, although the last two games Dwight has been great.

Meh, Bresnehan or Trudell would've picked up on this I think. Ding, Simers and Medina write a lot of negative things about the Lakers, as did Plaschke.

Why wouldn't they want this to get out? Lol, so they're stopping themselves from doing their jobs?

Sac want to move Cousins, Howard dont fit ship his *** to Sac town. If I was a lakers fan Id rather have Cousins. But not really my team Im a Cavs fan and id love to have Cousins on our team as well. enough to give up Walton, AV, and Waiters which was a horrid pick, hes a sixth man but def not a 4th pick in the draft. I said Lillard or Lamb and they laughed and Id still take eithe rof them over him. But with Samuels gone I hope Jones starts getting more minutes. But ya Lakers need to get rid of Howard quick they shoulda knew befoe hand what kinda cancer he was gonna be in the locker room, he got his coach fired, wasnt even planning on staying there still made him lose his job, I dont know whats wron with these knucklehead guys anymore. I bet Magic are happy id rather have big baby then him as well.

First off, Dwight isnt going to Brooklyn, that ship has sailed and the Nets love Lopez. While Dwight is a great center, hes underperformed big time this season, if the Lakers wanted to trade with BK the Nets wouldnt be giving up that much.

shep33
01-07-2013, 05:55 AM
This report just seems shady though. The title itself is "Brooklyn Benefactors..."

Anyways, you know what's weird? I think Brooklyn would be worse if they traded away a good chunk of their core for Dwight.

Say it's like Watson/Brooks, Lopez, and Wallace, plus picks. Well then, going forward, they're paying 70+ mill over the next few years to 3 players: Dwight, Deron, and Joe Johnson.

You know LAL would unload a bad contract on the Nets too. Probably Steve Blake or something.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think this has a chance of happening because LAL doesn't want the lengthy and expensive contracts of Lopez + Wallace, who are both quality players.

It's bogus. Then why are your coaches and players sounding like it's not?


"I understand it a little bit," Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said of his team's chemistry concerns before things worsened with a 112-105 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Sunday at Staples Center, "but everybody has a job to do. The only thing we can ask players is to play as hard as they can. Whether you're happy or not doesn't really matter if you are playing as hard as you can."

D'Antoni unfortunately had more to say.

"You don't have to love each other," he said. "I've been on a lot of championship teams in Europe where there's edges and we don't go out to dinner every night. That is not why we're losing. We're losing right now because we don't have a consistent 48 minutes of good basketball."


And this is Dwight to a reporter (http://oi49.tinypic.com/8yes1t.jpg).

Very unlikely, but it's a legit option if the Lakers want to keep Dwight

True but the amnesty only works on players that have signed prior to the new CBA I believe.

Next year is actually the last year that the Lakers can use it because nobody is under contract in 2014 outside of Nash (who can't be amnestied because he didn't sign before the new CBA).

So they can not use it, or use it on Kobe, Pau, Blake or Metta

Yup, you are correct, I didnt realize so. Although, I still think someone like Pau is better off being amnestied than Kobe. Itd still give the Lakers the ability to sign a guy like Chris Paul or Josh Smith.

Something tells me that Kobe might get amnestied. Take off his 30 mill salary next year and the Lakers team salary drops to 48 mill. Trading Pau can drop that even further.

It's a possibility, a very very unlikely one lol, but it is possible.

Even if this is true or not, Dwight is such a tool. He literally is a huge steaming pile of douche. He says he's not a diva but yet he's pulled stunts like this since his last year in Orlando and after he was traded to the Lakers.

He needs to grow up but I don't think that is going to happen until he is out of the NBA. Him and Eric Gordon should start their own team so they can fondle themselves with their childish behavior and their douche like tendencies. Apparently, making millions playing a professional sport and PLAYING a sport as their job isn't good enough for them. I'd hate to see what either of these tools if they had to apply themselves in a real job situation...

He's a *****, Kobe is right about that and I would tell him that straight face to face in the hope that he'd punch me. That Kobe is a complicated character to say the least, is nothing new. Still Howard needs to grow up. On court, off court and just how he deals with everthing. His managment is so awfull but it's his choice what he's talking and what he's demanding/asking for all the time.

So what is this dude doing again? He's sitting there and crying like a kid in the kindergarten who got his toys robbed by another. Notice it, use it for motivation and deal with it. Give the right answer day in and out in your acts and speech.

L.A. has nothing on this city when it comes to douche bag, ignorant sports writers.
Howard in the NYC scene will be as big of a show as Tebow. The media will be so up his arse and hypercritical of him that he will want out of here asap.

Besides that is the fact that this guy started a problem in his new city way too quickly after stirring up such a mess in his old one. He's a head case, plain and simple.

I'm not saying LA should do this since Howard is one of a kind, but with Mike D'Antoni's system, I wonder how LA would do with Brook Lopez and Humphries, amongst other things for Howard and maybe even Pau (though this would require them to trade for Joe Johnson and I don't see that happening).

Humphries could give the energy plays that Marion did for the Suns. Unless LA wants to risk losing Howard for nothing, maybe trading him for pieces that fit the system a bit better would make sense. Lopez can pick and pop as well as roll I'm sure.

Lopez, Humphries, take back contract they LA isn't happy with, Brooks, future 1sts

The Buss family has no loyalty. They would trade Kobe in a second if they knew it meant keeping Dwight. That is why they traded Shaq, to keep the younger player that they could build around. The onyl problem is Kobe's no trade clause. He can veto any trade he wants.

01-07-2013, 11:20 AM
Kobe has always had issues with teammates. He's such a competitor and alpha male, he reminds me a lot of Jordan in the sense that both of them had several altercations with teammates throughout their careers.

I didn't think their personalities would mesh well once the trade happened. If they start going on a winning streak however, a lot of this stuff will die down.

Here's another trade idea:

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bxsamtf

Plus, the Cavs give LA their unprotected first for this year.

Of course this would hinge on Howard resigning. He would be dumb not to recognize the potential of he and Irving.

I can see Howard walking to the HEAT.

He would have to sign for the 1year cheap, then sign a big contract next off season... The only way the HEAT can pull this off, is if they get that china/japan money, by signing big endorsement deals, to pay off that NBA Tax.

I actually think that the Lakers will be fine this season. I still see them making the WCF or the Finals ( the script writers can't fool me ).

I do agree though that if they don't start winning soon, one of those 2 will be shipped out. Probably 2 out of 3 will be gone when factoring gasol as well.

I can see Howard walking to the HEAT.

He would have to sign for the 1year cheap, then sign a big contract next off season... The only way the HEAT can pull this off, is if they get that china/japan money, by signing big endorsement deals, to pay off that NBA Tax.

I actually think that the Lakers will be fine this season. I still see them making the WCF or the Finals ( the script writers can't fool me ).

Not exactly surprised. Kobe Bryant wants to win. He is a big douche about it. Dwight Howard shows up to NBA games like its a game with your boys at the rec league. Dwight is definitely the guy you would wanna hang out with. Kobe Bryant is just a professional.

No one knows exactly what the problem is but i'll try. two things I have in mind, first only a few teams has a chance to beat the Lakers if Howard is taking more than 20 shots (considering the talent around him) but every team has a chance when Kobe does. Secondly, most superstars know how to tame their ego and take a step back when there is another young super star on their team (Wade, Duncan, David Robinson) Kobe is selfish by nature and he is in denial that Howard is better than him and he is out to prove to everyone that he's the "man" rather than do what will be in the best interest of the team (let things run through Howard). Since Howard has been with the Lakers, he's taken less than 10 shots in a lot of games. That's a travesty. You have two guys (Nash and Howard) who have ran things for their teams successfully over the years and Kobe won't even defer to them when he's on the court. Imagine Howard, Gasol and Nash on the same team (regardless of coach) that team will be above .500 by itself.

If I pulled down 26 boards in the game and only got to take 7 damn shot in 41 minutes I'd be pissed. Like I said before no reason Kobe should be taking 26 shots on a team with those people surrounding him. To the Laker fans saying we wouldn't have the record we have now if not for Kobe. How do you know that? Did you see all scenarios and how they would work out already. Kobe has yet to sacrifice anything this season. He is still playing at an elite lvl offensively not defensively. It's not hard to be that good offensively taking 22 shots a game.

Maybe that's because of some of his 4th quarter made shots when they are behind, those folks forget that he may be the reason they fell behind to start with. But let's all be honest here, if Howard took 7 shots in the game how is that Kobe's fault? You're blaming the wrong person here because ultimately it's the coach's decision on how the offense is ran.

Comparing NY writers to LA writers is nothing different. Big media outlets would rather cover the negative news, both these outlets love this approach. You even said it..."stirring the pot" is what they are focused on primarily.

I guess that applies to most media, but its no joke in Tinseltown. They may have improved, but LA media transformed Kobe into what he is today. Arrogant, and not scared to say what's on his mind. You can't get any worse than Adande back in the day. Kobe's favorite writer drops the "Kobe wants out of LA" articles and creating the monster. LA media just magnifies negativity instead of focusing on the positive.

Now Dwight understands what Shaq went through.

Kobe has always bad mouthed teammates while rarely taking accountability for his own issues or poor play and has always thought it is ok to dominate the ball on offense for long periods of time even when he is on a team with other actual good players.

Kobe has had an impressive offensive season but the way he is playing now is not best for the Lakers from a winning perspective.

They need a balanced offense.

Lol...Dwight having to be restrained shows he mentally weak and can't take the criticism.

That isn't true.

Just because you want to fight a guy doesn't mean you are mentally weak. Who knows what Kobe said to him? We know that he at least called Dwight soft, if he said anything more I wouldn't be shocked if half the NBA players would go after him as well.

Michael Jordan sure as hell wouldn't take that and i don't you'd call him mentally weak.

Do you think there's any chance the Lakers told these two to shut down the rumors somehow so they took this picture?

I mean, did reporters REALLY just make up the WHOLE story, based off nothing?

There is nothing Trolling about that pic of my logic.

You can play buddy buddy with someone that doesn't mean past tensions or issues haven't existed or that future ones may not either.

Maybe all this Dwight / Kobe tension is a media fabrication but based on things both D12 and Kobe have said recently I doubt it is.

Closing because it seems to be a non-issue now and this thread seems like it's about to go into the shitters.

He was just the first to get to it. It could have been handled better, but it's just a pic. Simply adding it to this thread would have been enough.
