Los Angeles Lakers: Kobe Bryant’s Tweets A Hot Topic of Discussion

With the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Playoffs and Kobe Bryant unable to play due to his ruptured Achilles, it should come as a surprise to no one that he was live-tweeting the team’s first game against the San Antonio Spurs.

 

 

Kobe offered his insight during the match-up, often contradicting Mike D’Antoni’s offensive style. During the Lakers loss, much was made of Bryant’s in-game tweeting. D’Antoni referred to his injured superstar as a “fan” in the post-game press conference in San Antonio. Kobe had something to say about that as well.

 

It seems as though there may be some tension between the Lakers head coach and best player, but with Kobe watching the game from his couch, it shouldn’t be made out to be a big deal. It is interesting, however. Kobe has become a must-follow because of tweets such as the one below.
