Kobe on supposed rift with Dwight Howard: ‘It’s not true’

“omg! I’m not getting mixed up in this kiddy drama spit, bro. too old for that spit,” Bryant responded via email. "How do you think I feel at my age having to chase down this stuff,” I answered. “I understand your position. But if it’s untrue, any of it, and allowed to circulate throughout the league, which already is happening, I would think you’d want to say it’s not.” “It’s not true,” Kobe responded.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It was a no-win situation for Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers’ talented and polarizing shooting guard.

Bryant would only feed the rumor by addressing allegations he told Dwight Howard he’d be the third wheel on the Lakers. So Bryant stayed silent, which, of course, fed the rumor.

Damned if you do. Damned if you don’t.

After much prodding, Bryant finally denied telling Howard he’d have to be the ‘Tyson Chandler of the Lakers’. In fact, the All-Star went all Danny Glover in the Lethal Weapon movies, claiming to be ‘too old’ for this stuff.

Hopefully, no serious damage was done, and the Lakers still have a chance at Howard.
