It all started when Rockets owner Leslie Alexander said "it's just stupid" that people think Howard smiling means he doesn't take the game of basketball seriously. Dwight also commented on how chemistry off the court is especially important and he wouldn't want to be around people who are frowning. Are you hearing all of this, Kobe? He also pointed out that over the last two years, he's developed a thick skin that will help him going forward. Hmm. We wonder what number of people he's talking about here?

Dwight, you're working on a clean slate, don't start taking subliminal shots already.
