Dwight Howard left the Lakers a season ago, but because of Kobe Bryant's achilles injury, the two haven't played against each other since their ill-fated partnership blew up in everybody's face. If you thought things between the two were all good, well, you don't know Kobe Bryant very well.

In the fourth quarter of the Rockets blow out of the Lakers Tuesday night, Bryant got in Howard's face as he pulled down a rebound. Howard responded by throwing a couple of elbows, and the two jawed back and forth at each other. After a couple of minutes of review, the refs assessed Kobe with a personal foul, Dwight with a flagrant foul, as well as a double technical for the two of them.

Look at the shit talking!
