Kobe Bryant daps up LeBron James, reconnects with Dwight Howard in rare Staples Center appearance

Kobe Bryant picked a good Los Angeles Lakers game for his first visit to Staples Center in a while. Making a rare post-retirement appearance at the arena in which he played the vast majority of his NBA career, Bryant was on hand to watch the Lakers dominate the Atlanta Hawks 122-101 and have some fun with the team in the process. Sitting courtside, Bryant had a quick moment with LeBron James in the first quarter, which immediately preceded a 3-pointer from the superstar to put the Lakers up 24-5.
