Kobe recruiting Dwight Howard

The actual Lakers-Magic trade talks seemed to have cooled, but...

Kobe Bryant has had at least one in-depth phone conversation with Howard recently, even discussing how Howard might fit in with the Lakers' scheme.

One person with knowledge of the conversation said Howard came away feeling as if he wouldn't be the Lakers' top option, for obvious reasons. It's Bryant's team.

(via PBT)

A few things:

  1. obviously, it's relevant that Howard seemingly seeks to have it 'his' team, which wouldn't happen in Chicago.

  2. Still, it'd be nice if Rose could use the Adidas phone and talk. Not that he has to, but I never get when it's reported glowingly that Rose doesn't. If I were a big-time columnist I'd be a jerk and insinuate that Rose doesn't want anyone to take his spotlight, we don't know his motives either way.
  3. There's a bit in there about Andrew Bynum not being bothered by it, and I happen to find the suggestion out there (and it is, no link, sorry) that Noah's play is because of trade talks insulting to Noah.
