It was plainly clear that Kobe Bryant called Dwight Howard "soft" while shit-talking his former teammate on opening night, but now, thanks to an intrepid Instagram user who was sitting courtside at the game, we know that Kobe also called Dwight a "bitch-ass nigga."

See for yourself!


The looks on his teammates' faces are just priceless. Poor Jeremy Lin is trying so hard not to look at Kobe, probably for fear of getting punched in the throat. Nick Young, on the other hand, is loving every second of it, because Nick Young is an agent of chaos.
