Dwight Howard Reportedly Mocked Kobe Bryant in Front of Other NBA All-Stars

by February 19, 2013

The icy, drama-filled, and increasingly contentious relationship between Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard continues to grow more ridiculous by the day it seems. For the second time this season, a report has surfaced alleging that Dwight Howard made fun of Kobe Bryant behind his back. According to the NY Post, Dwight clowned Kobe during All-Star Weekend after they flew together to Houston: “Amid other reports that the Lakers’ chilly on-court chemistry was spilling into the locker room, we’re told that Howard ‘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 the Clippers’ Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant. The source added 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 haven’t thawed.”
