Kobe Bryant isn’t shy to speak his mind, but when it comes to voicing frustration with his own team, he holds nothing back. In this case, however, he isn’t exactly voicing his frustration allowed, more like he is passively showing his fellow Los Angeles Lakers teammates that he’s not happy with them.
While Bryant has been out basically all season long, his teammates have posted the worst record in the Western Conference and the fourth-worst record in the NBA — that’s not something he condones nor is he used to having a terrible team.
Bryant is unlikely to return this season, but I suppose he is wishing the same about his current teammates in future years. The veteran superstar unfollowed every one of his Laker teammates on Twitter recently and that just shows his displeasure with the way they are playing.
When your teammates are playing poorly and accumulating just a 19-39 record with a couple months of play left, what do you do? Of course, you show them that you’re not happy by unfollowing each and every one of them on social media.
It seems kind of harsh and childish at the same time — it’s really hard to explain such thing happening.
When I say he unfollowed every one of his teammates, I’m not just talking about the scrubs that likely won’t be back next season, I’m even talking about guys like Pau Gasol who have been there with him through good and bad.
Kobe is on a string of hatred on Twitter. Last week, he tweeted that he was very angry that the Lakers traded Steve Blake and that they were going to regret it.
No one is good enough to be followed by Kobe, apparently.
