Kobe And Shaq Still Aren’t That Friendly

This is about as awkward as Twitter exchanges can get.

1. Kobe Bryant live-tweeted a broadcast of his 81-point game against the Toronto Raptors, which happened seven years ago today.

Stat line: 42 minutes, 81 points, 28-46 FG, 7-13 from three, 18-20 FT, 6 rebounds, 2 assists.

2. Kobe’s intermittent commentary was exactly what you’d expect it to be.

3. It was all pretty dull until Shaq chimed in.

That’s like texting back “k” to someone, except that someone is Shaquille O’Neal.

5. It was the uncomfortable social-media version of this handshake.

6. Bonus: Shaq then asked a very mysterious question that Kobe has not publicly responded to.

Who or what is Dead Bunny? My guess is Doug Christie.
