The tension between former teammates Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard has been well-documented. Leading into the first game of the season, Dwight was refuting claims that he left LA because he was afraid of Kobe. In the footage above, that seems apparent.
In the video, you see Dwight throw back-to-back elbows at Kobe, landing the second on his chin. The two subsequently got into it, culminating with the incredible capture of Kobe telling Dwight he’s soft. (P.S. Kobe ate that elbow.)
Priceless. It’s about to be an entertaining NBA season. Watch as Dwight throws elbows at Kobe above.
