Just because Kobe Bryant is injured and not playing, that doesn’t mean he won’t find a way to give his opinion on his team’s play during the playoffs.
Bryant was unable to travel with the Lakers after undergoing surgery on his left Achilles tendon, so he watched the team’s first-round playoff game against the San Antonio Spurs from the comfort of his own couch. And like many couch-bound fans, Kobe took to Twitter to offer his opinion and analysis of his team’s play.
Limited to just 140 character per thought, Bryant offered a running commentary of the Lakers’ loss, even interacting with fans throughout the game.
The Lakers fell to the Spurs 79-91, and it seems that Coach Mamba felt for his teammates.
Check out Bryant’s analysis in the tweets below.[tweet https://twitter.com/kobebryant/statuses/326056886090743809 align=’center’] [tweet https://twitter.com/kobebryant/statuses/326057524509933569 align=’center’] [tweet https://twitter.com/kobebryant/statuses/326067182419189760 align=’center’] [tweet https://twitter.com/kobebryant/statuses/326086622036766720 align=’center’] [tweet https://twitter.com/kobebryant/statuses/326068186904682497 align=’center’] [tweet https://twitter.com/kobebryant/statuses/326090754885816320 align=’center’]
When Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni was asked after the game whether or not he thought Bryant’s tweets were appropriate, D’Antoni replied with, “He’s a fan. He’s a fan right now.”
Bryant replied to those comments by saying that he will be watching Game 2 from the same spot while wearing a Pau Gasol jersey and Laker face paint. Tweet on, Black Mamba, tweet on.
