It should hardly surprise anyone to find out that Dwight Howard didn't get along well with Kobe Bryant nor that he didn't like playing in coach Mike D'Antoni's system with the Los Angeles Lakers. It was pretty well documented that Howard didn't want to be Kobe's No. 2 and that a banging center isn't exactly a primary option in D'Antoni's run-and-gun game planning. However, according to Comcast's Ric Bucher, D12 made specific demands to the Lakers when they met this summer regarding a long-term extension.
