Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard Get Into Yelling Match During Lakers Win Over Hornets

Dwight Howard, Kobe BryantThings are getting a little testy between the two biggest stars on the Lakers.

Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard got into a yelling match on the court during the Lakers’ win over the Hornets on Wednesday, according to Kevin Ding of The Orange County Register. Apparently, the argument started over a disagreement about the Lakers’ defensive rotation.

If the Lakers’ can’t get along, they could be in for a long season. The Lakers won the game 103-87, so the tift didn’t affect their performance on Wednesday, but its something to monitor moving forward.

You can read Ding’s series of tweets below to follow the fight.

Don’t worry, though. The quarrel didn’t last all game. Before long, the two Lakers were slapping hands and helping each other up.

The Lakers currently stand at 9-10, so if the team wants to turn their season around, they may want to keep in the in-house fighting to a minimum. Bryant scored his 30,000th career point, and finished with 29 on the game. Howard scored 18 and grabbed eight boards.
