Kobe Bryant would like for Dwight Howard to play through some pain instead of worrying so much about media and fan criticism. As YouWager bettors know, the Los Angeles center has missed the past three games because of a torn labrum in his shoulder, aggravating an injury he initially suffered earlier this NBA season.
Bryant considers that Howard, who is playing with the Lakers for the first season, may not be used to the team’s standards.
The 27 year-old Howard demanded patience in a recent interview reminding fans that Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal needed three years before winning a championship with the Los Angeles team.
However Bryant, who is averaging 27.6 points per game in his 17th NBA season, is approaching this season with more desperation.
Online sports betting fans might not see Howard in future games as his status is not clear for tonight’s game versus the Boston Celtics.
