There's trouble brewing in LA, and it has to do with Dwight Howard's torn labrum.
Howard has been out for three games, but the Lakers need him now more than ever. Kobe Bryant told ESPN that the team is out of time.
"We don't have time for Howard's shoulder to deal. We need some urgency," he said.
"Howard has never been in a position where someone is driving him as hard as I am, as hard as this organization is. It's win a championship or everything is a complete failure. That's just how the Lakers do it. And that's foreign to him."
Kobe tried to soften his words before the team's game against the Celtics Thursday.
"There's a urgency to be out there, but it's not at the cost of making his shoulder worse, you know?"
Howard fired back.
"He's not a doctor, I'm not a doctor, so that's his opinion.
"I wanna play. Why wouldn't I wanna play? But at the same time, this is my career, this is my future, this is my life. I can't leave that up to anybody else, cause nobody else is gonna take care of me."
Howard started against the Celtics Thursday.
