    Funny how the Lakers organization played this tune all the way upto #StayD12.

    I don't understand why people think Calvin, or anybody in the organization for that matter would say something that could only hurt what's left of this season---and the future regarding Dwight as well.

    There's no drama because Howard knows he won't have to be here after 2 months.

    Howard is gonna stay quite and not damage his image anymore while riding this out. He's gonna play good little solider and leave with his brand intact.

    Exactly. Teams always deny until they no longer benefit from doing so. And the players themselves always deny the conflict (unless you are an asshole like Kobe).

    Watkins is another puppet like Feigen.

    So Howard gave up, again. That's three teams now?

    Article seems pretty accurate. Harden and Howard don't hate each other, not a chemistry issue, but have different personalities. Team is doing poorly and they recognize as leaders that they need to do more and will be held accountable as leaders if they don't get it done. Fair.

    They don't care enough to have drama, that's the bottom line

    Dwight Howard gets over losses in 5 minutes and is all happy go lucky again, Harden can't wait to bang some strippers after games

    there is no drama, they don't give two shets

    The Rockets have to lie. The Players, the GM, the Coach, the owner.

    There is no way they would confirm any drama since they are the 9th seed, are going after free agents now and in the summer.

    You sound you are apart of the "never will be happy crowd". Harden and Howard are not happy because they aren't winning. That doesn't mean they hate each other. I've seen nothing this season that would indicate that they do hate each other.

    Watkins works for ESPN LOL.

    It's on ESPN.com.

    The story even says, "Harden told ESPN"

    That failed lob in the Jazz game from Harden to Howard seems suspect. That's all the evidence I need to prove that Harden hates Howard. :)

    Watkins vs Stein vs CBS vs Amick vs Blinebury vs Harlan vs ESPN vs Feigen vs Woj vs WIndhorst vs TNT

    Who the F is right on this toxic Harden-Howard relationship? They all have something to say.

    We'll find out this off-season. If Howard walks for less money they he hated it here. If he walks for more money we didn't want him. If he stays for more money then we weren't that bad. If he stays for less then everything was overblown and he or Harden never hated each other.
