Dwight Howard Elbows Kobe In The Face, Kobe Then Calls Dwight “Soft”
There’s no love lost between Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant, the feuding former teammates got into a small scuffle during Tuesday’s season opener between the Houston Rockets and LA Lakers. After Dwight Howard caught a rebound, Kobe got close and started swatting at the ball, that’s when Howard caught him with two elbows as he was clearing the ball. Kobe took offense to the elbow and started yelling “try me” at Dwight and preceded to call him “soft”. In the end Howard was given a flagrant one foul and a double technical was assessed to both players.
