06:39 PM ET 02.19 | Kobe Bryant reportedly isn't concerned about what teammate Dwight Howard is going to do after this season. And Bryant said during the NBA All-Star game that "it doesn't matter" what the Lakers decide to do with Dwight Howard heading toward the trade deadline. The comment came during a weekend where it became clear that Bryant wanted nothing to do with Howard. According to the New York Post, Howard was poking fun at Bryant in the locker room and in front of the Western Conference All-Stars by wearing the guard's jersey and imitating him. When Bryant later walked in, he apparently distanced himself from Howard. During All-Star weekend, Los Angeles general manager Mitch Kupchak shot down any trade speculation regarding Howard being exchanged for the Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo, but those in Los Angeles have a growing worry that Howard will bolt as a free agent this summer.
