Kobe Isn’t With The Lakers Right Now, But He’s Still A Dick To Them

The injured star’s twitter account got more attention than the playoff game itself.

Without the help of Kobe Bryant most believe that the Los Angeles Lakers stand very little chance against the San Antonio Spurs during the first round of the playoffs. And if the Spurs 91-79 victory is any indication, they’re probably right. But if you thought Kobe would shy away from the spotlight you were dead wrong.

While he may have been unable to lace up his sneakers, Black Mamba took to the internet and decided to live-tweet the Lakers first round game against the Spurs.

Then Phil Jackson, who many believe should be coaching this Lakers squad, decided to get in on the fun.

So of course the post game press conference revolved around a player who wasn’t even in the building.
