08:11 AM ET 02.12 | Even on an off-day, questions arise with the Lakers. What's wrong with you if the Greatest Teammate Ever is fed up with you? Well, what's wrong with Dwight Howard is he still isn't trying. And for Steve Nash -- who has spent close to two decades in the NBA making anyone who tried hard next to him look better than ever and who said during his own MVP heights that if everybody worked as hard as he does, he wouldn't even be in the league -- not trying is infuriating. ... [On Sunday], after so many games now feeling trapped by so many instances of Howard's immobility, Nash snapped -- far more so than when the two squabbled in Denver on Dec. 26, Howard's most lifeless game of the season besides Thursday in Boston. Why won't Howard try?

The problem is Kobe. Either Kobe has to decide if he want to break Jordan's / Karl Malone's scoring record or get his 6th and possibly 7th ring. He can't get both.

Trade that big goof for Cousins...At least Cousins plays hard, averages 19 & 12....gets a steal and a few blocks....Am sure with teammates like Kobe,Nash,Gasol,Cousins will be put in check and not lash out at refs.
Howard appears to be a hard man to please...Howard & Duhon for Cousins,Evans,Salmons,Outlaw

QUOTE(#12):

He's not getting either this year.

You are correct. If averaging 15 points a game meant getting another ring, would Kobe swallow his ego and do it? I don't think he can.

Remember that SI cover with Nash and Howard where the caption was, "Now this is going to be fun!"

We had no idea how much fun!!
