It’s no secret that Kobe Bryant is difficult to play with. In fact, he said as much earlier in the season. Kobe truly doesn’t care who you are, he expects the best out of you. Dwight Howard is no exception. Kobe has reportedly been hard on Dwight this year, demanding more from him. But if you ask Dwight, he’s fine with Kobe being confrontational and demanding.
“I love it,” Howard said. “That’s something we needed. A lot of times we have a lot of guys come together and nobody wants to step on anybody’s toes or do anything against anybody else. We want to win. In order for us to win, we have to pull the best out of each other every night.”
