Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard Feud Brewing in Lakers Camp?

Things aren’t going the way the Lakers were expecting this season. The team is currently sitting at 15-17, and after a rather embarrassing performance (despite a close final score) on Friday night against the Clippers, things are getting even more uneasy in El Segundo.

At Lakers practice on Saturday, ESPN Los Angeles reporter Ramona Shelburne got some interesting quotes from Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant, both of whom may want to be the leader of this team.

So from these quotes, it seems like there might be some distance between some of the players on the team. But who is Howard referring to when he says these things? It seems that he cleared that up later on, in a somewhat subtle (but not really subtle at all) manner.

Dwight isn’t directly talking about Kobe, but what other potential alpha males are on this team right now? So, if we can make the assumption that Howard was indirectly talking about Bryant, what sparked these comments? Well, thankfully Shelburne got the chance to talk to him as well.

Bryant then went on to talk about the dynamic between himself and Howard and how it compares to the relationship between himself and Shaquille O’Neal during the seasons those two were running things in Los Angeles.

This isn’t exactly looking encouraging right now for the Lakers. If their two best players are at odds, which from these quotes it appears may be on the verge of happening, the team’s struggles aren’t going to dissipate anytime soon. While the team continues to rack up losses and offer more questions than answers, situations like these are going to make more and more headlines until they can get themselves out of this funk and back on the right track.
