The atmosphere inside the Los Angeles Lakers locker room is great. Several players, like Kyle Kuzma, have spoken about it in the past. This time, Lakers center Dwight Howard confirmed what his teammates have been saying.

The NBA lockdown interrupted the process of building team chemistry, but the former Slam Dunk Contest champion is convinced the Lakers will be quick to re-build it when the season is resumed.

“Just the chemistry we had before this was off the roof,” he said per Mike Trudell of Lakers.com. “And then now, it’s like we have to build that up again. We got to get that engine flowing … But I think with the group of guys that we have, I also think with the hunger that we have to win a championship, once we get back it will be like we never left each other.”
