Kobe explains unfollowing Howard

Dwight Howard’s gone. Gone from Los Angeles and gone from Kobe

Bryant’s Twitterverse.

The Lakers star explained why he unfollowed his former teammate

Monday night.

Of course, there’s no hard feelings. Kobe’s surely not one to

hold a grudge, right?

And lest you forget, he already went to Instagram to show

he considers the true heart of the Lakers in his initial

response to Howard’s exodus to Houston.

Plus, Kobe’s pretty excited about the new guy the Lakers just

added to man the middle next season, Chris Kaman.

Maybe it’s addition by subtraction?
