When Dwight Howard left the Los Angeles Lakers for the Houston Rockets in the summer, Kobe Bryant had some strong feelings toward his now former teammate. Bryant took to Twitter and unfollowed Howard immediately after his decision to leave became public. The two players had some clear off-court issues as both wanted to be the “star” of the team, much like the struggle between Kobe and Shaq years ago.
The drama involving the Kobe and Dwight seemed to be over after Dwight’s departure from Los Angeles, but recently Dwight took to Instagram to post a picture of him dunking over Kobe:
Dwight also added the caption: Throwback hahahahah. Nothin like how he got me but look at dfish and pau face hhahah.
As most of you will recall, Kobe and Dwight have some history when it comes to dunking on each other. Kobe gave Dwight a “welcome to the NBA” lesson when he threw down a massive dunk over the 6′ 10″ center in Dwight’s rookie season. See video below:
It’s interesting that Dwight would post a picture of himself dunking over Kobe especially with how badly things ended between the two players this past off-season. Kobe is one of the most social media savvy players in the NBA and is sure to have a response.
