Video: Dwight Howard pokes fun at Kobe on team plane

Nov 27, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

Note, if you are very sensitive to language, don’t watch this video. There are none of George Carlin’s seven words in here, but there is one that could offend some. You’ve been warned.

Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard approach things differently. This video likely came after the Lakers loss to Sacramento (the day before Thanksgiving, which makes sense with Howard’s food references) and before the Lakers loss to Memphis and bounce-back win against Dallas. After a loss like the one to the Kings Kobe will be angry.

Howard, he’s joking around on the team plane and calling Kobe 75 years old. Making his point about playing better, but joking around.

Right now, it’s early in the season and everybody laughs. The Lakers play .500 ball much longer and nobody will be laughing on the team plane.

Hat tip to SLAM.

      I enjoyed this. ProBasketballTalk is a blog about all things NBA – and that extends to the culture around the game.

      The players and ‘larger than life’ personalities are a big piece of what makes the NBA so appealing to so many – including myself.

    People make me laugh

    You guys are making a bigger deal about the record than the LAKERS are. They know they won’t be .500 at the end of the season. If Kobe thought they wouldn’t be title contenders there would be no clowning him on the plane or anywhere else.

    To me this just shows how comfortable the LAKERS are with each other.

    Heat didn’t play we’ll at first either, but made finals back to back and winning 1 championship. They will be fine it’s better to see them having fun than everyone not getting along.

    Maybe Howard is his own man and isn’t,afraid of Kobe. Why do you proclaim to know whats going on and Kobes mindset, when you obviously have no clue?

    They are comfortable with each other? Is that how you describe yourself and your partner in your alternative lifestyle?

    You’re on creepy dude lakerslurper.

      Meanwhile, the Celtics just poke Pudhummer53 in his stretched out bunghole on their plane on long load trips.

    Dude with zero rings makes jokes of dude with a whole fistful of rings. Sounds like something Howard would do.

    I hope cousins didn’t hear this. He might be offended by the bad language.

    I couldn’t understand a thing he was saying. Howard should stick to planking…maybe off that airplane’s wing.

    What’s a “long load trip?” Is that when you have to walk upstairs to the bathroom to spit it in the toilet?

    Nevermind, what you and your guy friends do, I don’t want to know- you savage!
