Kobe Bryant: I don’t give a s— about Dwight Howard leaving (Video)

You think Kobe Bryant is sick of talking about Dwight Howard yet?

Speaking at Los Angeles Lakers Media Day Saturday, Bryant was surrounded by reporters and asked questions about Howard’s choice to leave the Lakers for the Houston Rockets. They were the same questions Bryant answered all summer, so no doubt he was tired of hearing about the subject.

Bryant said he wasn’t surprised that Howard chose to sign with Houston, indicating he felt that was going to happen. When asked why he got that feeling, Kobe said “honestly man, I really don’t give a s—. It is what it is. If he came back, it would’ve been great. If he didn’t, it’s not. It is what it is.”

It is what it is. Kobe isn’t the first Laker to say he felt Dwight wasn’t going to come back, so what can they really do? Dwight didn’t want to be there for a variety of reasons. Having to be second in line to Kobe was probably the biggest reason. Now it’s time for both sides to move on. The Lakers will move on to mediocrity, while Houston will move forward to being one of the top teams in the Western Conference. It is what it is.

    I find it most interesting that Dwight continues to present this” I am a good guy” demeanor, yet controversy seems to be apart of his shadow. While in Orlando, he interrupted his coaches interview when the coach was responding to the question that allegedly Dwight wanted him fired. Dwight came in and put his arm around the coach and said: “I don’t want the coach fire…I don’t know what you’re talking about…” Now in Los Angeles, he says he not only wanted the coach gone, but the star of the Lakers, Kobe, gone or “muzzled” as well. “Muzzled?” Meaning, do and say as I want you to, or I want you gone?” This more or less sounds like a line in the “children of the corn,” do as I say or be casted to the corn fields.., Nevertheless, I suppose it was Hollywood and Dwight was this spoiled “no ring star” who knows his time is quickly running out…perhaps the Houston team can “rocket” him back to “relevance?”

    I think Kobes just speaking the truth. Everyone is expecting him to be heartbroken over Dwight leaving but in all actuality, its not that big of a deal. We all knew that picking up Dwight was gonna be a big load carry but, Hey! It is what it is.
