Dwight Howard’s time in Los Angeles, though brief, was memorable. For all the wrong reasons.

Kobe Bryant, whose appearance on Shaquille O’Neal’s podcast will be broadcasted Monday, says he didn’t fully appreciate Shaq until he was saddled with Dwight during the 2012-13 season. (Shots fired, and all that …)

Prior to the big fella being shipped off to Miami in 2004, Bryant and O’Neal spent eight seasons together, winning three NBA championships along the way. The two future Hall of Famers called a truce.
