Los Angeles, California – The departure of Dwight Howard from the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason has kept fans and team officials scratching their heads as to why such an inspiring duo had such difficulty getting along in their quest for a NBA championship. Many have thought that the egos of these great superstars were just too enormous to fit onto one team, while others knew there was more behind the breakup. New details emerged this week from a high level executive within the Lakers’ organization saying that the breakup stemmed from a team visit to a local Burger King in which Dwight Howard refused to let Kobe Bryant wear the last available Burger King crown. “I can see why Kobe would be upset,” said customer Drew Swanson, who was visiting with his family at the time. “The crowns are very popular and they tend to run out very quickly. My 7 year old daughter threw an absolute fit when the one she received was missing a piece and there were none left for her to wear,” added Swanson.
Many are relieved to finally learn the truth behind the legendary breakup and are hoping that the next Burger King the Lakers visit has ample hats for Kobe and the rest of the team.
