08:08 AM ET 02.11 | The spotlight is doing Dwight Howard no favors, and his struggles are being magnified by the torn labrum in his right shoulder. The pain flared just moments after tip on Sunday. On his first trip down the court, Dwight Howard felt Miami Heat players grabbing at his injured right arm. "They got me early," he told Yahoo! Sports in the quiet of the Lakers locker room after Sunday's 107-97 loss. "They would yank it back." Howard said the Bobcats did the same thing in Charlotte Friday night -- even worse, in fact. "It's like a jolt," he said. "Then it hurts the rest of the night." This is the daily reality now for Dwight Howard, who no matter how publicly he is painted as soft, is playing with an injury that is not going away anytime soon.

Everyone asks him about his injuries. That's the big story about him right now.

Doesn't mean he has to say anything. Just say you are doing your best and trying to help the team win.

Nah! It's never ever Kobe's fault. It's always anybody else but Kobe. Kobe is scoring half of their points so it's never his fault. Pau misses 3 attempts out of 10 and he will still be the scapegoat. Now Dwight is the scapegoat. Nash would be next...lol

Kobe had a great game yesterday. His defense wasn't top notch but it is what it is. Can't blame him for the loss. Heat are just better.

Actualy it's Kobe's fault and his teammates, coaching and finally management/ownership. But this is too much for you to comprehend. Better use the Kobe scapegoat theory that you like to bring day after day. Smh
