Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant hasn’t taken Dwight Howard‘s departure from the team kindly and leveled yet another shot at his former teammate, though, this time for more subtle than before.
Appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Bryant was asked about Howard and while praising him for being a ‘great kid’ (and ‘kid’ wasn’t meant in a malicious way), he did take a shot at his work ethic.
In keeping with the reason for the event, Kimmel asked, “If there was only one homeless person in the world, would you be happy if it was Dwight Howard?”
The audience roared, mere weeks removed from Howard’s decision to leave the Lakers for Houston after one season.
“Dwight is a great kid,” Bryant said, nearly drowned out by boos. “We have different perspectives on what it takes to win.”
That was more or less a kind way of Bryant questioning Howard’s desire.
As if Bryant wasn’t must watch anyway, his matchup’s with the Houston Rockets this season should be nothing short of jaw dropping.
