It’s tough to know what exactly happened or if the following information is even true. But this story couldn’t have completely been born out of thin air. Right? Well I guess it could have, but its fun to imagine what would go down if an altercation between Bryant and Howard got physical. Mamba or Superman?
A league source told the Daily News that the Lakers stars got into a heated exchange following a New Year’s Day loss to the 76ers, and Bryant went for a low blow – referencing and agreeing with Shaquille O’Neal’s criticisms of Howard being soft.
Howard was restrained from going at his teammate, according to the source, and there have been rumblings from the center’s camp that he’s been unhappy with Bryant since earlier in the season.
