Dave McMenamin's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Here's the full testy exchange when Dwight got annoyed when asked if he has talked to Kobe about his injury ...
Reporter: Have you talked to Kobe about it, just your situation?
Dwight Howard: "What situation?"
Reporter: In terms of your injury and all that?
DH: "Have I talked to Kobe?"
Reporter: Yes, just as far as outlining, like, telling him your perspective?
DH: "Of what?"
Reporter: Of you wanting to take the long view?
DH: "Why do I have to explain that to Kobe?"
Reporter: Well, because he’s a teammate …
DH: "He’s a doctor?"
Reporter: No, but he’s a teammate.
DH: "OK. So I should explain that to all my teammates then, right?"
Reporter: I’m not insinuating that. I’m just asking, have you talked to him?
DH: "I’m asking you …"
Reporter: I don’t know if you’ve talked to him.
DH: "I’m asking you, I’m supposed to tell all my teammates?"
Reporter: No, I’m just asking if you talked to him.
DH: "Just Kobe. Just Kobe."
Reporter: Considering the comments he made yesterday …
DH: "I don’t know what he said."
Reporter No. 2: He says we don’t have time for Dwight’s shoulder to heal. We need urgency. We need him back on the floor. This is the Lakers. It’s either a championship or a complete failure.
Reporter No. 2: What do you say to that?
DH: "That’s his opinion."
