The Los Angeles Lakers entered this season with high expectations and were most NBA analyst’s pick to represent the Western Conference in the 2012-2013 NBA Finals.
As it turns out the Lakers have not gelled, look old, and are a disappointing 15-18. Lakers legend Magic Johnson has been trashing the team on a daily basis, and the team seems more like a circus, kind of like the New York Jets of the NBA.
Rumors circulated today that Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard got into a fist fight after a recent loss when Kobe called Howard soft. These rumors were later proven false.
Bryant, Howard and head coach Mike D’Antoni had a little fun with this false story and Kobe Bryant tweeted out the above picture captioned:
“Mamba vs. D-12 – It’s On!”
The Lakers are in even more trouble, however as the team announced Howard (shoulder) and forward Pau Gasol (concussion) are both out indefinitely.
