Yeah, no [expletive] Sherlock.

It's just a feeling I have. May be wrong, and it wasn't something I intended to have to really justify (but you being you...). Not necessarily something that is going to be glaring on the court. As far as I'm concerned, Kobe and Dwight are playing fine. Personality wise, they just kind of seem weird together.


Personality wise yeah :) I just feel if they both want to win things will ease over. I like when I see them going at each other in games and taking initiative.

I remember when Dwight was in Orlando and someone was posted on him and he'd tell anyone coming to help "Nah stay there I got this.." And then he'd make his move and score.

That's what I want to see from him when he's 100% :)

you don't need to be friends off court to play better ball.. Dwight wasn't expecting this circumstances and neither do anyone..


but chemistry, relationship , being on the same page gets better when consistent wins start to be as a habit..


i remember in the summer when people were doubting kobe will give the ball up, and you see what is happening even in this losing record ...

I think Dwight's comments weren't referring to Kobe's, because Kobe was talking bout Shaq and not Dwight

I think it'll improve as well.

As he gets healthier I'd like to see him get more offensive touches too.

Dwight said: "That's not being an alpha male. If you're an alpha male, you don't have to always show that you're the alpha male."




Classic beta.

Wouldn't it be hilarious though if Dwight turned his back at practice and Kobe dunked on him?

Like he did to Shaq here.

Dwight is having problems with Nash a little bit too

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/8817247/dwight-howard-says-los-angeles-lakers-play-each-other


D'Antoni said if the Lakers' chemistry was lacking, it's simply from lack of time together. For instance, he said the relationship between Howard and point guard Steve Nash on pick and rolls is "not there yet."

"I don't know if it's because of a lack of training camp, or a lack of Steve being with us from the beginning, but the relationship between Steve and Dwight's got to get a lot better," D'Antoni said. "It's not creating the easy shots that we need."

The Lakers' coach also questioned the basic premise that players need to be close off the court to play well together on it.
"I don't know. I played on a lot of teams and I never really hung out with guys all the time," D'Antoni said. "I don't think you have to love each other. But you have to respect each other with what they do on the court."

^ Maybe if Howard started to use the pick and roll with Nash more wisely...

Honestly, Nash even said Howard is as close as unstoppable when they pick and roll, but no. Howard likes to post up...

Yes... it should be Gasol posting up and Howard running pick and rolls but Gasol doesn't want to post up
