Kobe Bryant unfollows Dwight Howard on Twitter, says 'vamos'
Using Instagram, Kobe Bryant reacts to Dwight Howard's decision.
With a picture of him and Pau Gasol together, Kobe hashtagged it "#vamos #juntos #lakercorazon #vino."
(For the uninitiated, vamos translates to "let's go," juntos translates to "stick together," Laker corazon means "Laker heart" and "vino" is just what he calls himself.)
Kobe also unfollowed Howard on Twitter. Power move.
Kobe was said to be an integral part to the Lakers efforts to keep Howard, even having a separate meeting with him where he told him he could teach him how to be a champion.
In the end, Kobe and the Lakers' efforts weren't enough as Howard bolted for Houston to team up with James Harden. Bryant, 34, is left coming off an Achilles injury and will return to a depleted roster that really only has Gasol and him, along with 40-year-old Steve Nash, 33-year-old Metta World Peace and, well, that's pretty much it.
The Lakers are going to need a whole lot of corazon next season.
