The Los Angeles Lakers held a meeting to clear-the-air amongst one another before Wednesday's shootaround.

Kobe Bryant directly asked Dwight Howard if he disliked played with him.

"Guys went at each other a little bit," said a person who witnessed the meeting.

Mike D'Antoni opened up the meeting by expressing his fatigue of reading grievances expressed in the media.

Steve Nash spoke first and said he didn't care what style the team played under.

Bryant acknowledged that he can be "hard to play with" and then asked Howard if it bothers him.

The answer Howard gave is unclear though he didn't engage back at Bryant in a similar tone.

"He didn't go back at Kobe," said the person who witnessed the meeting.

Howard subsequently spoke to the media about his need to hold himself accountable.
