For those of you that watched Sunday’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs, you may have noticed all of the talk surrounding Kobe Bryant and how he was using Twitter during the game as if he was the head coach (which let’s be honest–he probably could coach better than Mike D’Antoni at this point). There’s no question Bryant is one of the most knowledgeable players in the game and even though he was providing great commentary and tips for his beloved team during Sunday’s contest–it appears this is the last we’ll see of Bryant’s tweets during games.

As you can see above, Bryant made the announce that he will not be tweeting during his team’s games anymore and made it clear that he “chose” on his own (doubtful) to go in this direction. While it makes sense for Bryant wanting to focus on his team, this whole situation has been blown out of proportion over the last 24 hours.
Bryant wasn’t with the rest of his teammates on Sunday as he continues to recover from the torn Achilles tendon suffered a few weeks ago and there’s no question he would give anything to be on the court this series against the Spurs. So what if Bryant was bored and decided to provide his own commentary during Sunday’s game–he’s just trying to have fun and enjoy the game like the rest of us.
