Kobe Bryant has revealed the reason behind his decision to ‘unfollow’ Dwight Howard on Twitter.

The LA Lakers star took little time in cutting ties with his former teammate on the social media website, after Howard joined the Houston Rockets in a highly-anticipated free agency move.

Many saw the instant unfollowing of Howard as a sign that the pair’s relationship was far from positive in California, but Bryant insists that’s not the case.

Indeed, the 34-year-old shooting guard wished his old colleague well, and admitted he struggles to be friends – in the online world at least – with opponents.

“I wish d12 the best honestly. I just find it hard to follow players that wanna kick my teams ass #thatsjustme,” wrote Bryant on his Twitter account.

Antawn Jamison and Metta World Peace can also expect to be ‘unfollowed’, if they leave the Lakers during free agency.

Bryant does follow two NBA players who aren’t current or former Lakers, with Jason Collins and Anderson Varejo the lucky pair.

Howard’s move to Texas is of greater significance on the court than off it of course, with LA now tipped to struggle to make the play-offs this season.
