Funny since moments have the Howard to Houston signing became official, Bryant unfollowed him on twitter, and posted this picture of himself and Pau Gasol:

Bryant also added that the expectations and goals for the Lakers this season is the same as any other season.

“Our expectations are always the same going into every single season: It’s to improve every day with the goal in mind of winning a championship,” stated Bryant. “It doesn’t matter what anybody else is saying, that’s the goal that we have.”

While Bryant is still recovering from surgery, it is unknown if he will play in the first meeting between the Lakers and Rockets on Nov. 7.
