Well on Monday, the Black Mamba set the record straight and gave an explanation as to why he is no longer following the former Laker center.

Here’s what he had say:

Essentially, the competitor in Kobe takes precedence over everything. Dwight is no longer on his team so by nature he doesn’t feel the need to associate with him. Naturally, this should be expected because Dwight and Kobe weren’t the best of teammates in the first place.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the Lakers move forward sans Howard. They’ve signed Chris Kaman and intend to amnesty Metta World Peace, already adding to the crazy off-season that isn’t even halfway done.
