Kobe Bryant was interviewed on Friday by Stephen A. Smith on ESPNRadio New York. Kobe said that he has already spoken to Dwight Howard. Here is what his exact words were:
“I’ve reached out to him already. We’ve talked briefly and I’ll continue to talk to him”
Kobe also went on to say that it isn’t a good idea to go into “full recruitment mode” right now.
This is good news if you want Dwight Howard back in LA (I am one of those people). Being one of the first people to talk to Dwight, and then being one of, if not the last, is a big advantage that the Lakers have in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes.
We still have another month of this Howard talk, and there will be a nice roundtable coming your way in the near future regarding Dwight Howard.
