It seems like Kobe is enjoying being on Twitter.

Seemingly in response to a report in the New York Daily News of a growing feud between himself and Dwight Howard, Bryant tweeted a picture of the pair involved in a mock fight. Citing a league source, Stefan Bondy of the News reported that Bryant and Howard needed to be restrained from each other after a New Year’s Day defeat. In the picture shared by the five-time NBA champion, the task of calming the discord was left to Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni.


Presumably in a more straightforward fashion, Lakers sources also refuted the report to Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.


Ramona Shelburne
Two Lakers sources have adamantly shot down the reported Dwight/Kobe incident. One said, "it's simply not true."

Even if Bryant and Howard are getting along fine, all is not well in Laker Land. A loss to the Denver Nuggets on the night before the News report was the team's third straight and fourth in five games.
