Dwight Howard not talking to Kobe Bryant

Published Add your comment

Dwight Howard has confirmed what everyone had suspected by admitting he is no longer on speaking terms with Kobe Bryant, after controversially leaving the LA Lakers during the off season.

Howard became a free agent at the end of last season but, despite an offer being on the table from the Lakers, took the controversial decision to quit Los Angeles for a move to the Houston Rockets.

He and Bryant endured a strained relationship during the 2012-13 campaign, even if Howard did go to visit the Lakers superstar at his home after he suffered a torn Achilles in April.

Bryant unfollowed Howard on Twitter after his departure, and after returning to LA for the first time to since his move, to face the Clippers, the Rockets star was asked about his relationship with his former teammate.

When asked by reporters if he still speaks to Bryant, Howard responded with a short 'no.'

Howard was also asked about the Lakers' willingness to keep him and whether or not they could have done anything different, to which he said: "Listen, it's over with man.

"Like I'm already out of there. There's no reason to talk about what the Lakers could have did. I made my decision and I'm living with it. I'm happy with where I'm at. I'm in a great place.

"I think everybody should move forward. It's over with. This is my life, you know what I'm saying. If you don't like it, so what."
