Earlier tonight, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant got into an verbal altercation with Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard after Dwight elbowed Bryant in the face during the second half of the Rockets-Lakers opening day game.
After the game, Lakers head coach Byron Scott stated that Bryant and Dwight didn’t like each other and Kobe responded to that comment with this instant classic as noted by Serena Winters of Lakers Nation:
KB didn't agree w/ Byron saying him & Dwight don't like eachother: "You can't help but like him. He's a teddy bear. He's a really nice kid."

Clearly, Kobe wants to kill Dwight with kindness!
