Dwight Reportedly Mocked Kobe During All-Star Weekend

As if the Kobe Bryant/Dwight Howard dynamic needs another wrinkle, now this. Apparently, during all-star weekend in Houston, Dwight mocked Kobe behind his back to other members of the West squad.

I’m not sure there’s much to this because Dwight is Dwight and he routinely does stuff like this, but given their somewhat rocky tenure together, this may cause a stir.

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.
