Default Dwight's dad calls out MDA and Kobe

http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/jeff-schu...se-would-he-s/

Quote:
When asked about the unfolding soap opera in Los Angeles, Dwight Sr. defended his son and criticized both Bryant and Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni.
“I told him before he said it publicly, ‘It’s your career. No person can say what you need to do or not do. You can’t worry about what Kobe or anybody else says,’” the elder Howard said. “Nobody can say what Kobe said -- that’s stepping into another man’s shoes. I understand what Kobe was trying to do, but he went about it the wrong way. He’s trying to win a championship. But Dwight has to tell Kobe, ‘I appreciate your opinion, but that doesn’t matter. We’re two men on this team. We need to be reasonable about this.’”
Dwight Sr. said he believed Bryant was trying to motivate his son, but that the advice was misplaced, adding: “The problem is the coach. (D’Antoni) needs to step in and say, ‘You guys have got to be quiet. We’re trying to secure something here. Dwight is probably looking at the coach, thinking, ‘What are you going to do?’ I promise, if that had been Stan Van Gundy, that wouldn’t have happened. (Howard) wouldn’t have been admonished publicly. I think the coach has a lot to do with who controls Kobe’s mouth right now.”

I think his father displayed a great amount of poise and respect.




Somebody needs to call Maury

It's Kobe's team, not Dantoni's.

D'antoni and Kobe spent most of the Charlotte game trying to get Dwight going by feeding him in the post and putting as many "shooters" as they could find on the court around him. Does he honestly think they don't want him to be the dominant center they thought they were trading for?

The Lakers really are a drama magnet. Stern has to be loving this.
