More importantly, things have not gone well for Dwight, who has felt Kobe Bryant's wrath and hasn't seen the offense come to him nearly enough. His numbers — particularly his shot attempts — are down as he continues to recover from back surgery.
He needs another operation, and he needs the ball to be surgically removed from Kobe's fingers. And that's not going to happen.
Kobe will be around for at least another two years, too.

Could he have made another list now that he's in L.A.?
