Dwight Howard posted a photo to his Instagram account today that showed him dunking over his former teammate Kobe Bryant.
After Howard left the Lakers last summer, Bryant said nothing. Instead, he unfollowed Howard on Twitter.
At the time, Dwight did nothing, though maybe this is now his reply?
It just seems like an odd thing to do at this point in the year. Kobe will likely see Dwight during the All-Star Weekend – Bryant is reportedly attending the festivities but won’t play due to his fractured left knee – and the Lakers will then face the Houston Rockets at Staples Center on Wednesday.
Why bring this up now, though? It’s been seven months since Howard made his decision and almost everyone has moved on. Howard apparently hates being asked about the Lakers, but doing something like this will just cause him to be asked about Bryant and L.A. all weekend long.
At this point, it just seems like attention seeking and a whole lot of immaturity on Howard’s part.
