For Kobe Bryant, Insults Keep Coming
Kobe Bryant didn’t join his teammates on the bench Tuesday night, preferring the sanctity of the Lakers’ locker room to courtside at Staples Center.
It was impossible to tell if he was stewing after NBA general managers knocked him down a notch in their assessment of the league’s top shooting guards, but it’s not out of the question given his recent reaction to other perceived slights.
Bryant changed his Twitter avatar to “1225,” presumably in response to ESPN ranking the Lakers as the 12th-best team in the Western Conference and Bryant as the 25th-best player in the NBA.
What’s another jab, besides extra inspiration?
