Dwight Howard Visits Kobe Bryant in Newport Coast; Let's Hope Victory Magic Rubbed Off
Dwight Howard recently went to Newport Coast to cheer up Kobe Bryant, according to a photo the Los Angeles Lakers' ailing captain posted on his new Instagram page.
Let's hope a little Black Mamba magic rubbed off on the Lakers center, who is tasked tonight with helping to dispense with the Houston Rockets so the purple and gold can secure a playoff spot.
The image shows Bryant on crutches flanked by Howard (holding Kobe's dog) and teammate Jodie "Get Buckets" Meeks:
The injured superstar included these hashtags: "#Lakers #Playoffs #Countonteammates." It's nice to see Howard made the gesture and Bryant obviously appreciated it given the bitter words the two have exchanged (via locker room reporters) over the course of a difficult season.
Bryant, who's only been on Instagram for less than a week, had also posted a photo of him with Pau Gasol (or the Westworld replica of the Spaniard):
Kobe's bilingual description and tags: "Con mi hermano! #lakers #countonpau #mambaedits ha."
