Kobe Bryant: Dwight Howard Is Trying To Beat Lakers, But I Wish Him The Best

When it comes to Kobe Bryant, you're either with him or against him. If you fall into the latter group then he's not likely to follow you on Twitter. That's just Kobe, according to Kobe.

A few days after Dwight Howard revealed his decision to leave the Lakers for the Rockets, Bryant addressed his reported decision to unfollow the All-Star center on Twitter.

As reported by Darren Rovell of ESPN, Bryant acted decisively after Howard tweeted that he had chosen the Houston Rockets over the Lakers, unfollowing his former teammate on Twitter.

Shortly after letting everyone know that he "honestly" wishes Howard well going forward, Bryant sent a message regarding the future of another of his teammates: Metta World Peace. With the Lakers reportedly considering cutting ties with Peace via the NBA's amnesty provision, Bryant let it be known that he'd keep MWP around if it were up to him.

Of course, Howard proved quite emphatically that it's not up to Kobe.
