The cold war seems to be over — we think.

Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant shared two hugs, jokes and a basketball court Saturday. And all hell didn’t break loose.

“I think everybody made it seem like we just hated each other,” Howard said after his 18-point, 12-rebound night. “There’s no need for us to hate each other. This is his last season — congratulate him on that — and I basically wanted to see if he wanted to get more 3s up. He had shot a couple. That’s what I was talking about at halftime with him. He’s one of the greatest players to ever play the game, he’s getting recognized in every city that he plays in for his accomplishments on the floor, and I think all of us want to have that kind of reception when we’re about to finish our career.”
