Dwight Howard’s time in Los Angeles has been pretty awful for all involved parties. Over the weekend, news emerged that the discontented big man would explore other options in the offseason.
And then yesterday, this happened. Howard got himself ejected from the Lakers’ Game 4 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, exchanged words with general manager Mitch Kupchak and disappeared into the night.
Then, injured Kobe Bryant limped over to the bench and received a standing ovation as if to say “I’M STILL HERE, FANS!”
It was highly dramatic and surreal – the perfect microcosm of the Lakers’ tumultuous season.
