Lakers fans are heated about Dwight Howard’s recent decision to leave the Lakers and join the Houston Rockets in his attempt to finally win a championship. Kobe wasn’t too thrilled about the news and promptly unfollowed Howard on Twitter after he released his statement to Lakers fans. Although most aren’t surprised Kobe hit the unfollow button as quickly as he did, some people feel the move was a petty one, especially since Kobe is a seasoned champion and still one of the top players in the league. Kobe is still new to Twitter, but like most celebs, he’s learned to use it as the perfect platform to address any scandals relating to his career himself. After suggesting he doesn’t agree with the Laker’s rumored amnesty of Metta World Peace, he also explained just why he decided to cut ties with Dwight Howard on Twitter. Kobe tweets:
While Kobe is saying it’s no beef involved, apparently rapper Ice Cube is singing a different tune. In fact, he actually told a crowd of people in LA at the Kings Of The Mic Tour that Dwight is a “b*tch” for leaving:
“F*ck Dwight Howard, godd*mn it. We love LA! We don’t need no punk-a*s muthaf*ckas on our team. We don’t give a f*ck about a Dwight Coward. We don’t need no b*tches on our team, homie. You don’t deserve to go up on that godd*mn wall. So, I predict tonight Kobe [Bryant] will win another championship before Dwight Howard ever sniffs one.”
In related news, rumor has it the Lakers are in talks with Lamar Odom to bring him back to LA.
