New team, same old Dwight Howard. As Black Sports Online points out, after the Los Angelels Lakers acquired Howard, Kobe Bryant wanted D12 to tone down on the clowning around, but some habits die hard. Following the Lakers' loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, DH started cracking jokes over the speaker on the team plane and even got in a dig about Kobe's age.

With the Lakers still struggling to gel and win on a consistent basis, Bryant was probably in the Thanksgiving spirit and let Howard slide this time, but D12 still better watch out. You don't want to get on the Black Mamba's bad side.
