Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant weren't exactly the best of teammates back in 2012-2013 and it was always pretty obvious to basketball fans. Back in those days, the Lakers were beginning their recent run of struggles and they couldn't seem to catch a break. Eventually, Howard was ousted from Los Angeles and he ended up in Houston. It was believed that 2012 was the beginning of the end for Howard but now that he's back on the Lakers, he has had a bit of a career resurgence.
Last night, the Lakers took on the Atlanta Hawks and Kobe Bryant was sitting courtside. Prior to the game, Kobe and Dwight linked up for a small conversation and after the game, Howard spoke about the experience.
“I didn’t even know who it was. He slapped me on the neck and I was about to elbow him. Then he said, ‘What’s up, man. You’re playing good.’ It was cool, man. I was glad he came to the game,” Dwight said according to Mark Medina of USA Today.
Seeing these two squash their beef has been quite surreal for Lakers fans and if Howard keeps playing at a high level, even more, praise is on its way. Even if you're not a fan of Howard, you can't help but be happy for him as he attempts to repaint the narratives surrounding his career.

At first, the feud seemed like it was fan fiction until things got messy between the two publicly. But according to Chance The Rapper, who's worked with both artists, the beef between Nicki and Cardi B, like most rap feuds, was "curated."
Chance The Rapper sat down with Big Boy where he was asked about his relationship with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. After explaining how he got on Invasion Of Privacy, he detailed how much of what we see in the music industry has been manufactured to create buzz.
"A lot of that stuff is produced," he told Big Boy. "Everything is curated before we get to see it. Like all the information, the way they phrase it to us, the way that, you know, they pit people against [each other]... It's made for you to, like, accept in a certain way. So like, a lot of people had to choose a side."
He added, "I don't want to speak for them at all but, like, to a certain extent, they got pushed into that too. And I don't think all of that was a 100% their feelings."

YBN Nahmir Responds To Lil Reese Saying He’ll Slap Him: "Show Me"
The beef unfolds.
YBN Nahmir and Lil Reese are officially at cross-hairs. According to Rap Current, the beef began when YBN Nahmir reportedly liked a tweet which claimed Lil Reese had previously mocked YBN Almighty Jay for getting jumped in New York. The shade in the latter must have infuriated Lil Reese because he was also recently jumped and the video surfaced all across social media since. The video of the assault Lil Reese since addressed emerged online and shows the rapper on the ground getting viciously beaten by numerous unidentified men. As the assault carries on, someone attempts to retrieve whatever is in his pockets.
The rapper allegedly behind the attack, whose name is Skeezy, shared the video on his socials with the caption: ""This is what happens when the so called “Chiraq Grim Reaper” @reesemoney300 plays with the wrong people. He ends up beat up, shittin on his self and getting all his lil money took out his pocket. That fake tough shit never get you nowhere." And the sad part is that Skeezy did not exaggerate the claims because screenshots of the attack reveal Lil Reese did defecate on himself. Hence, it would be understandable for Lil Reese to feel a way about YBN Nahmir allegedly liking posts.
In response to the like, Lil Reese initiated a threat wherein he claimed he would slap YBN Nahmir for sneak dissing. Now, it looks like YBN Nahmir somewhat responded with a tweet that stated: "Show me."
