A sports analyst and former American football tight end for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, Shannon Sharpe, sits down with big man Dwight Howard where he details his time with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant, and the Houston Rockets.

Dwight adamantly denies Kobe calling himself soft: “Kobe and I just didn’t work out, we were at two different points in my career. When Kobe called me soft it was really my mentality at the time and he was 100% correct.”
