Whatever, at least he finally came out and said it.

Dwight is such a baby, I can't see the Lakers backing this guy up as our star player after Kobe.

whether howard is 100% or not I don't blame him for being pissed. kobe was clearly aiming for the scoring title despite loss after loss. that would bother any teammate.

People forget how he could have easily won it (last season i think ?) from durant by going all out in the final game of the season.. But since the game was easily won he sat out most of the second half. He wasnt even aggressive or anything like that.

Had he wanted to he could have easily scored the 40 or whatever amount needed to beat Durant. I actually disliked that because it was within his reach and it would have been a great show of competitiveness.

Glad he finally realized he doesn't stand a chance against durant this year., Either way the title is pretty stupid to have even been that close when you know KD was a much better scorer last year and it really wasn't close counting the points scored and efficiency. Kobe took 5 more shots a game and still didn't get the title

"You play with Dwight Howard you know, he's going to miss them," Kobe said. "But, at the same time, I have to find ways to still be effective. I can't allow that to affect how I play. There were a lot of times late in games where I would get upset you know, because I felt like he was costing us the game. And you know, I wanted some touches outside. Do I want touches, yeah. But, whatever I have to do to help this team win, I have to keep my mind in that area."

He didn't even play in that game. It was against the Kings and he could have played but decided to rest for the playoffs since he was coming back from injury.

They lost though because neither Kobe, Bynum nor Pau played in that game

It doesn't. The Lakers have won 5 rings with Kobe being Kobe.

This has nothing to do with morale, either. Just because Dwight is a bonafide babyback B!TCH doesn't mean Kobe's shooting affects team morale. What's impacting "team morale" is Dwight's immature, awful, puzzy ass attitude. The dude is a born loser. Mindset of a loser, work ethic of a loser, approach of a loser.

Every teammate of Kobe thinks that.. even coaches.. it's just that few rarely ever say it.

Thanks for that. I did forget that he didnt even play. I was having trouble recalling the details..

But it proves the point that resting or looking at the big picture has always been primary for Kobe. Despite any other issues he has like shot selection and overzealousness at the end of games.

He was more than capable of stealing that scoring title from KD.

Shaq shoot much more while kobe shoot much more too, because Shaq is head and shoulders better than howard, and then some.

trade this loser.

That's not the point he was trying to make. The point is, MJ takes a bunch of shots, but hits most of them. Kobe takes a bunch of shots, but misses most of them. If you're shot jacking, and aren't efficient, you're hurting your team. If you're shot jacking, and making most of them, you're only helping your team.

Garnett was right, what a clown Howard is. Can't keep his mouth shut for long.
