The New Look Lakers with Dwight Howard didn’t go as planed, the Lakers were beat by the Dallas Mavericks. There were times during the game when it looked like Kobe Bryant was coaching Howard, perhaps Bryant would have been better suited just playing his own game and leaving Howard to play his own game. Howard had 19 points in his Laker debut, he was able to get his hands on 10 rebounds and had 2 assists. The Lakers fell short and lost to the Dallas Mavericks 99-91.
Pau Gasol led the way for the L.A. Lakers with 23 points as the Lakers failed to win their season opener with Howard. The Lakers looked a little confused at times but it was clear that Gasol knew what he was doing. Now it is time for Bryant to leave Howard alone and let him play his game. After All Howard is the super man of the NBA, he certainly doesn’t need Kobe directing traffic for him.
The Lakers are going to have a tough season ahead of them if they can’t figure out who is supposed to do what this season.
